Pacific Princess Cruise Review by lawyer27
- Sail Date: October 2017
- Destination: Eastern Mediterranean
- Cabin Type: Penthouse with Balcony
The entertainment was sparse and below par and very few passengers showed up. The best things about the trip were the large suite, the itinerary and no kids! Split, Santorini, Rhodes, Athens, Mykonos and especially Dubrovnik were all spectacular ports. Stopping in Lesvos was a major blunder because the seas were too rough to launch the tenders to shore. Also, Rijecka was a big waste of time. At least Princess had the good sense to stay in Santorini until 8 pm, which gave us plenty of time to enjoy the beautiful sunset from the cliffs of the caldera.
Overall, it was an average cruise. I will stick to the midsize Princess ships from now on for better food, service and entertainment.

The negatives. This room is right above the starboard anchor and the room gets very loud and it vibrates when it drops. One morning it knocked a fixture from the ceiling it vibrated so much. Also, the room is directly above the Cabaret Lounge and you can hear the music and feel the vibrations from the bass. We gave up trying to sleep until the music stopped around 11 pm. Finally, you feel a lot more motion of the ship from this forward suite, although neither of us found it unpleasant.
Overall, the spaciousness of the room and balcony and having 2 bathrooms won out over the noise problems.
