My husband and I enjoy repositioning cruises, and we picked this itinerary because the port of calls were unique and more appealing than most bigger ship itineraries. We are frequent cruisers on Princess, but have never cruised on a small Princess cruise ship like Pacific Princess. At first, we were concerned that we would be bored with a stretch of 6 days at sea, on a small ship. Our fears were soon overcome, as we enjoyed the many activities, superior entertainment, and fabulous food, made available on this ship. We joined up with the Pacific Princess in Venice, Italy, and with the help of the Princess staff, booked our overseas flight through their EZ Aire Program, and saved hundreds of dollars on airfare. We embarked at 1:00 pm, and were the only passengers in the Terminal ! Needless to say, there were no lines, and no waiting. We walked right on board. Pacific Princess is a classy older ship, who will soon go into Dry Dock for upgrades. Our segment of the cruise was part of a World Cruise, and most of the passengers were cruising for 111 days.It was quite different to be in a small environment where most of the passengers already knew each other. It did create a cozy environment, though. Everything from the personal attention we received, to all the activities we enjoyed, to the port calls themselves, was super!! We especially enjoyed the "Top Notch" variety of entertainment, some of which was Broadway quality. This was a great cruise, and we left with many wonderful memories. Disembarkation took about 10 minutes, from the time we cleared the ship, until we went through Customs.

Great Things Come in Small Packages!!!
