First time on a small ship after 39 cruises, 29 with Princess. Met in Rome by Princess and by limo, taken to our Princess Pre Cruise Hotel. The Crown Hotel was outside of Rome, but still easy to get to the city center. Two days later taken to the port for an easy and quick check in aboard the best ship in the fleet.
The Pacific Princess is beautiful, warm, and charming with the most attentive crew and staff. There is nothing better than sailing on a small ship. The mini suite was like a regular suite. Very large and comfortable. Seeing the same passengers each day on shore and aboard at night is so much fun. It's like sailing with a big family. The food was excellent. Seeing the entertainment in a small intimate theater was very enjoyable.
Although my wife and I will be on the big ships again, we can't wait for our next cruise on Princess's small ships.
