Pacific Aria - Coin Location

Recommended Posts

Does anyone happen to know the location of the Coin on the Pacific Aria?


As outlined here , when a ship is constructed a coin is generally welded somewhere onto the ship. It's a good luck tradition dating back years. Royal Caribbean make a big deal of it and

. I've previously located the coin on the Diamond Princess and Island Princess.


I know that's it's often harder with rebranded and refit ships, but does anyone happen to know where the Aria's coin is?


I'm sailing on her in a few weeks time, and while I have sent an email both to P&O & HAL (her former owner), hoping someone may be able to clue me in as to the location on this ship.

As an update, whilst I still waiting on P&O to respond to my email I have received a response from Holland America. They escalated the matter up through the chain and I got a reply from the "Special Advisor - Office of the President".


They have tracked down for this ship that


"During the coinceremony, observed to bring good fortune, a Dutch guilder was welded to theforward mast of the ship"



And they have even found photos from the ceremony to help my investigations.






I'm going to take the email from HAL with me on board and see if I can track it down!
