P&O Cruises is bringing a new taste to its culinary offering with a cracking new seafood restaurant called ‘Shell & Bones’ debuting on Pacific Dawn next month.
Featuring a menu of locally-sourced seafood like Singapore-style crab from Queensland, lobster mornay from Tasmania and steamed Australian blue mussels from South Australia, the restaurant is set to reel in guests looking for a tasty seafood treat.
Shell & Bones Seafood & Grill will be part of the ship’s new international food market, The Pantry, during the day. Then at night, it will open as a dedicated restaurant, with bookings available, walk-ins welcome and a la carte pricing.
Alongside its tempting seafood, Shell & Bones will also offer delicious items from the grill like beef short ribs and Portuguese-style roast chicken as well as vegetarian options.
P&O Cruises President Sture Myrmell said the cruise line was hoping to make a splash with the new dining experience which will be added during Pacific Dawn’s multi-million dollar refurbishment in Singapore.
“Our guests love all the new food offerings we’ve introduced across the fleet over the past two years and they have an appetite for more, so we think they’ll really enjoy Shell & Bones,” Mr Myrmell said.
“There’s really no better time to enjoy seafood than during a holiday at sea. With Shell & Bones, we’ve created a restaurant that captures the way Australians love to eat: with a great menu, the company of family and friends, and the ocean by your side.
“We think it will be the perfect complement to The Pantry concept, which has already proved so popular on our other ships.”
Pacific Dawn will return to Brisbane on March 16 following her drydock in Singapore. Fares on the newly refurbished ship are on offer from $551* per person quad share for a seven-night cruise to the Pacific Islands departing on July 22, 2017.
