In the short story Problem at Sea, Pamela Cregan was one of a pair of young girls who were travelling together on board a Mediterranean cruise ship with Hercule Poirot. Like her friend Kitty Mooney, Pamela was about eighteen years old. They took pity on John Clapperton and the way which he was being bullied by his wife Adeline Clapperton and sought to "rescue" him. When the ship docked at Alexandria, the two girls persuaded Clapperton to accompany them ashore.

Pamela Cregan was played by Victoria Hastead in the film adaptation of the story which was episode 7 of Series 1 of ITV's Agatha Christie's Poirot drama series. Her portrayal was very faithful to the original story.
