Not the Love Boat, This is the Peace Boat
On her first visit to Adelaide since being transferred to Pullmantur Cruises and renamed, Ocean Dream will arrive into Adelaide on Monday 29 January 2018 at 10.30 am and dock at Outer Harbour.
Ocean Dream has been cruising the world since 1981 under many names and cruise lines. Previously known as Tropicale, Costa Tropicale, Pacific Star and now Ocean Dream she is 204.76 metres in length, has a draught of 7.5 metres, 10 passenger decks and carries a comfortable 1,422 passengers and over 250 crew.
Currently cruising with Peace Boat, Ocean Dream undertakes around-the-world cruises with departures from Yokohama Japan. Peace Boat is a global non-government organisation based in Japan, that aims at raising awareness of and building connections with groups that work for peace, human rights and environmental protection. Many of the public spaces aboard now serve as classrooms, workshop rooms and lecture halls to facilitate training for students in this arena.
Ocean Dream will arrive in Adelaide during her 96th and two month long voyage from Bali, before returning to the high seas at 9 pm on Monday 29 January 2018 with her onward voyage taking her to Hobart, New Zealand, New Caledonia, Papua New Guinea, Philippines and Solomon Islands.
With two restaurants on board which combine Japanese and international cuisine, there is a choice of dining options. Ocean Dream also offers many spaces for fun and relaxation with a gym, sports deck, book corner, Jacuzzi, pool, and coffee shop and bar.
Ocean Dream is not your average cruise ship. More information about Peace Boat and how you can join a cruise as a passenger or volunteer staff member is available at the website.
