Terrific first ocean cruise

Enjoyed the Pacific Princess and this Itinerary

First time on a ship this small. I quite liked the ability to walk anywhere on the ship within 1.5 minutes. However, the smaller scale does significantly limit the entertainment options. The stuff the do on ...

Smaller Cruising

The ship is the smallest and oldest in the Princess fleet. After many cruises this one was somewhat disappointing. The main issue was the dining. The food and service was sub-par and not up to the standards of most ...

Wonderful time!

This was our 22nd Disney Cruise. We have been on all the ships but the Magic is still the most magical. We were on the transatlantic cruise that left Dover on Sept 9 and arrived in NY on Sept 20. We had four days at ...

A taster for great nephews

I wanted a trip that my young nephews could go on and so could older members of the family through Saga. The average age of passengers was probably 70 but there were a few younger folk. The ship ran a 'Young ...

Excellent cruise for all ages

We choose this cruise because we have long wanted to go to Greenland and knew that the boat would be smaller than many, which suits us better. We went straight to the cruise ship having been to Dover many times. ...

I loved the intimacy of this small ship and I definitely love Princess

This cruise unfortunately was a big mistake for me. I wanted to take a 13 year old grandson on a cruise of the British Isles and the dates of this cruise as well as the fact that it was only eight days was great. ...

Dover-NYC leg of the World Cruise

My 13 yr, old grand daughter wanted to see Iceland. It was her first cruise (my 24th on Princess), so I saw it through her eyes. Princess transfers were hassle-free. Getting on the ship was a breeze. Service ...

After having sailed on the larger (5,000 + passenger) ships, this relatively small cruise ship, at only 650 pax, was much nicer. The cabins were the same size, maybe a little nicer, than the large ship cabins, but ...

Won't be cruising with Fred Olsen again
