After spending 12 days in Singapore, P&O's (Australia) “new” Pacific Explorer is on its way to her new home port in Sydney. She will come sailing into Sydney Harbor on Monday wearing her distinctive new Southern Cross livery (which debuted on Pacific Dawn in March).

After her multi-million-dollar refit, fans of the former Dawn Princess will hardly know her. More than 1,000 contractors spent more than 200,000 hours converting her while she was in dry dock. During that time, they replaced more than 269,000 square feet of carpeting, brought aboard more than 3,000 pieces of new furniture and 1,200 pieces of artwork.
