What a wonderful cruise with an attentive, personable crew that made our transatlantic cruise one of our best (of many). The main dining room food was well prepared, served at the correct temperature in almost all cases, well presented and ... Read more

This amazing small ship, the Pacific Princess, is from another era. As previous reviews have noted, this ship is great with less than 700 passengers on board at any given time. However, the ship needs some renovation and that is scheduled, ... Read more

If you like cozy and getting to know your fellow passengers and crew as well as visiting ports off the usual grid, then this ship is for you. Cabins are slightly larger too with lots of storage and closet space. Even the bath had plenty ... Read more

The cabin was totally outdated. There needs to be better accommodations when you have a third person in the room. Paying $2900. and sleeping on a generic pullout is unacceptable. There was not enough onboard activities. Two ports were ... Read more

We chose this cruise at the end of the season to avoid crowded ports and we liked the idea of a small ship, 629 passengers. We loved the relaxed atmosphere and the crew on this ship, it was purchased from the Renaissance line and ... Read more

Mid-size ship (650 passengers) that went to a lot of ports I'd never visited, at a beautiful time of year. The cruise completely lived up to its title - European Explorer - and its excellent reputation. I had special diet requests, and ... Read more

The Pacific Princess is the smallest, 670 passenger, ship at Princess. That is our favorite size ship. We booked a mini-suite cabin 8002 that had plenty of room, especially closet and storage space. Food quality was above average with no ... Read more

The Pacific Princess is a small ship, one of the oldest in the fleet and it may either be perfect for you or for less than what you expect. It holds total of 670 passengers. There is one main dining room, a buffet, and two specialty ... Read more
