You can follow Pacific Jewel on her bridgecam...


(Pacific Sun & Dawn also have bridgecams fitted, we post their captures over at the cruise site, along with bridge/stern cams from around 20 companies fleets)

Pacific Jewel

Yes she is down here in Oz now and with a lot of fan fare. She was 'relaunched' with her new name by the govenor general in Sydney harbour. Her claim to fame now she is the only ship withan active circus on board. But lika all P&O cruise ships she is not new, a cruide ship with another company in a previous life as is Pacific Dawn on which P&O have just spent 290 million in an upgrade.
But here is an interesting fact. In our days of the great liners there was a ratio of about 56 crew per 100 bloods. On modern cruise ships it is about 35 crew to 100 bloods.
