A P&O Cruises spokesperson has confirmed the incident happened on board the Pacific Aria. 

"P&O Cruises asked Queensland Police to investigate an alleged sexual assault onboard Pacific Aria. This followed an allegation by a female passenger that she was assaulted by a travelling companion."

"A cabin was sealed and, having reported the alleged assault to police, we have been assisting them fully in their inquiries."
