Out With The Old Pacific Princess

November 18, 2002
The old Pacific Princess has barely ceased sailing under that historic moniker -- when the new Pacific Princess departed today. The ship, which is not a newbuild but of the formerly-known-as-Renaissance-Cruises-fleet family, departed from Sydney today and will sail a series of 15 voyages between now and Easter under the P&O banner. Then the ship will head to San Francisco where, as a Princess Cruises vessel, it will offer Alaska itineraries.

In the meantime, reports from Sydney say the buffed-up 11-deck ship retains a lot of the trademark Renaissance emphasis on classic. Features include the usual ship-top pool, two outdoor jacuzzis, a Lotus Spa complex, jogging track, eight bars and lounges, four restaurants, cabaret lounge, richly furnished library complete with a fireplace, casino, in-cabin movies, shopping arcade and internet facilities.
