With the help of UK-based marine interior outfitters, Trimline, the former ‘Dawn Princess’ has been converted into P&O Cruises Australia’s latest ship – ‘Pacific Explorer’.
The cruise ship underwent a 12-day drydocking in Singapore, where Trimline created a ‘modern Australian’ style in many areas of the ship.
Trimline’s on-site team overcame many technical challenges to create the new Blue Room– one of the ships main focal points.
Other areas Trimline transformed included The Bonded Store with its secret entrance, Shark Shack, Turtle Cove, Future Sales, photo gallery, HQ, HQ+, Black Circus venue, The Lawn Bowls, Elemis at Sea, elevator lobbies and stairwells.
Nicolas Lagesse, Hotel Assets Director- Technical Services for Carnival Australia, said “I would like to thank you all for your contribution in making the ‘Pacific Explorer’ hotel project so successful. The team effort was superb and the end result fantastic!”
An interior designer spokesperson said “After 18 months of work on the ‘Pacific Explorer’, I’m delighted to tell you that we have delivered a product we are extremely proud of. It is exactly what we hoped to achieve, and P&O couldn’t be happier with the result. We want to personally thank you for all the hard work and support you gave us through this process – It wouldn’t have been possible without you!”
Michael Oliver, Trimline’s Co Chairman, remarked; “The Trimline team did a great job to overcome technical challenges and deliver the project on time, to budget and to the usual high standards for which Trimline is known. We now look forward to bringing the same level of workmanship to ‘Pacific Eden’ later this month.”
