Pacific Princess Cruise Review by Abbotthall

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Nov 2019
  • Destination: the Eastern Mediterranean
  • Cabin Type: Oceanview

We chose this cruise as it was a small ship (660 passengers), was visiting places we wanted to see, and was when we were in Europe visiting other countries.

Firstly our cabin was obviously designed for twin beds but the turned it into a double. What this meant was that when your pillow was in the wrong position it hit the light switch and turned all the cabin lights on. This happened several times over the 12 days. Also we were on the 4th floor above the gangway on the 3rd floor, every time we docked we were awoken by banging, crashing, and even one morning by an angle grinder as they prepared for disembarkation in port.

One excursion we got absolutely soaked getting from the ship to the bus and had to sit for seven hours in wet squelchy clothes- not good.

As it was a small ship you had only one choice of entertainment each night and it was hit and miss as to quality.

The acoustics in the dining room were so noisy that my poor father, who wears hearing aids, couldn’t have them turned on so missed out on conversations in the end we had buffet dinners. Also when did you go to a fine dining restaurant and have Purcel squirted into your hands as you entered???

No free bottled water??? Even on the trains in Europe you get a free bottle of water, also free in every hotel - no Princess wanted USD $7 for a bottle of water !!!

We have decided that as a family we are never going on a cruise again

You can understand why the Venetians want cruise ship banned. Too many people crammed into too small a space
