Pacific Princess Overview

Pacific Princess offers some of the line's more exotic itineraries in Europe, Asia and South America, including a 107-night World Cruise beginning each January from Ft. Lauderdale to Venice. The 30,277-ton, 680-passenger pair were acquired in 2002 from now-defunct Renaissance Cruises, and both are by far the smallest ships in Princess' fleet.

With its dark wood and plush interiors, Pacific Princess resembles a stately manor house or country inn. The more intimate size facilitates friendliness; don't be surprised if the staff knows your name and says hello when you pass by.

Unlike Princess' larger ships, Pacific Princess does not feature a flexible dining option; there are early and late shifts at 6:15 and 8:15 p.m. But the ship does feature the line's two popular alternative restaurants: Sabatini's, the signature Italian venue and the Sterling Steakhouse, which offers traditional favorites and an international wine list. (Note: Due to the small size of the ship, the restaurants alternate the nights they are open.)

Accommodation-wise, 92 percent of the ship's cabins are outside, 75 percent of which have verandahs. There are only five categories -- Interior Double, Oceanview Double, Oceanview Double with Balcony, Mini-Suites and Suites -- but there is significant variety within the categories, so consult deck plans and cabin reviews before booking.

Evening entertainment revolves around the Cabaret Lounge, which is equipped with a state-of-the-art sound and lighting system and presents a full schedule of options, including first-run movies, live music, variety shows and more. Live piano music is available at the Casino Bar, and the adjacent casino offers table games and slot machines. Sea days may include destination-specific lectures, and classes on photography and computer technology (all are part of Princess' enrichment-focused ScholarShip@Sea program).

We've sailed on over 26 cruises with PRINCESS. This was our first on the small Pacific Princess. It was very easy to get around the ship and the entire staff was friendly & approachable; it's perfect for cruisers who like a 'family' feel. ... Read more
This was my first cruise on a smaller ship. It was our 40th anniversary and we wanted to visit Venice and ports in the Adriatic Sea. The itinerary was excellent. The weather did not co-operate though. Our best investment was the $3 rain ponchos that ... Read more
