"Pacific Star is looking great after her multi-million dollar refurbishment and is set to take cruising kiwis to exotic locations in the South Pacific," says P Cruises New Zealand Manager Shannon Currie.
"So to celebrate we're offering travellers special fares on her cruises from Auckland this winter."
The 35,000-tonne Pacific Star features four dining venues, two swimming pools, spacious decks and a choice of queen or twin bed configurations in most cabins.
