Just returned from 10 day cruise in Pacific. Overall very nice made more special by Renewing our Vows on board. To start with embarkation was as expected a little busy with a later than normal boarding due to extra sanitisation taking place. The average age of cruisers would have been around 70 ,even though we are a lot younger made no difference to us . We chose anytime dining which I understand is relatively new on board and can recommend this as we got to meet new people most nights with great conversation had. Entertainment most nights was very good with special guests coming on board and the usual Princess singers and dancers in between. We had most breakfasts and lunches at Horizons ( ok only) and we choose specialty restaurants for dinners. Special mention to Stirling Steakhouse , very nice indeed. We did go on any Princess organised shore excursions, instead either went for walks or organised our our private excursions which suited our needs and more importantly our budget. Special mention to the staff who organised our Renewal of Vows package, cannot speak highly enough of them , very highly recommended to those considering. Did not use the gym but it looked spacious with plenty of equipment and nice view out to sea. On the last night we watched movie under the stars for something different, can recommend if you need quieter night or if travelling with younger ones. The ship itself overall was very nice ( staff great) with everything functioning and working, did not witness and issues. It is getting a little tired but did not detract from overall experience. Will we go again , yes absolutely.

Pretty Good

Cabin Review

Interior
Cabin IA
Small but plenty of cupboard space. Was only 2 of us so OK, would imagine any more would have been bit cramped.
Small annoyance is that you cannot turn down the air conditioning fan speed as very high only adjust temp.
