Aug.28-2017 Pacific Explorer had three windows repaired in Sydney on Saturday after sailing for a week with storm shutters in two restaurants. A P&O Cruises spokesperson confirmed that one window in Waterfront on Deck 5 and two in Angelo’s on Deck 6 were damaged last weekend when the ship encountered “higher than forecast swells” after departing Sydney on Saturday 19 August. Passengers were quickly assisted by restaurant staff and the windows were shuttered before a full examination could be conducted. As it is unusual for windows to be damaged in this way, we examined all windows in the area to ensure there were no latent defects in frames and glass acc. a spokesman.
