The Ocean Dream (formerly TropicaleCosta Tropicale and Pacific Star) is a cruise ship, built in 1981. The ship began sailing for Carnival Cruise Line as the Tropicale in 1982. The Tropicale was Carnival's first newly built ship, operating mainly in the Caribbean. She was transferred to the Costa fleet in July 2001 and renamed the Costa Tropicale. The Costa Tropicale was retired in 2005 and entered service for P&O Cruises Australia as the Pacific Star in December of that year. She was formerly Queensland’s latest cruise liner, based in Brisbane, performing cruises along the Tropical Queensland coast, to various islands in the South PacificNew Caledonia, and to New Zealand. In March 2008, P&O Cruises Australia sold the Pacific Star to Pullmantur Cruises. She has been refurbished and is currently sailing as the Ocean Dream.
