Pacific Princess Cruise Review by alirat153
- Sail Date: November 2019
- Destination: Transatlantic
- Cabin Type: Balcony
We loved the entertainment, there was quite a variety of shows from classical to comedy and we thought the sound system was brilliant. (My partner was a sound engineer).
I learned to play blackjack, not sure if that was a good thing, but the casino staff were friendly and helpful and very professional.
I thought the food was great, we had late dining and made good friends with our table mates.
I love the decor of this ship, with the domed painted ceilings and the murals reminiscent of Guagain.
Our cabin was ok but I would not choose that location again. I thought being right in the bow would be fun, but the movement was pronounced.
The shore tours were interesting but I’m not a port person, my partner is though and he enjoyed going on as many as possible.
I loved doing the watercolour painting, but my partner opted for mandolin lessons that were a bit of a shambles. He took it all in good humour though.
Embarkation was a breeze in Venice and even though we were a bit early they processed us and had no queues at all. Disembarkation was equally as efficient.

The cabin at 216 sq ft incl balcony was a good size with a 2 seater settee as well as the desk.
The cabin was kept spotless by the ever diligent staff and there were no plumbing issues of any kind.

Athens (Piraeus)Loved the view from the Parthenon. As it was Sunday it was free admission and very crowded.View All 1,276 Athens (Piraeus) Cruise Port Reviews

CataniaTook the bus tour to Mt Etna and was driven mad by the shrill and overly amplified voice of the tour guide. Apart from that the tour was great and so glad I got to see Mt Etna.View All 55 Catania Cruise Port Reviews

CorfuWe toured with a local taxi driver who was brilliant. He took us to all the main sites and some extras and also told us about the local economy and shared about his family. Made our trip actually.View All 681 Corfu Cruise Port Reviews

Rome (Civitavecchia)Disembarked here. Caught a taxi to our Hotel at the airport (about an hours drive) and the driver got lost. Couldnt speak a word of English so it was a bit of an adventure!View All 2,223 Rome (Civitavecchia) Cruise Port Reviews

SantoriniMy partner walked up the stairs to the town as he felt sorry for the donkeys. He had aching legs for days. The gondola wasnt working as it was too windy. I stayed on board.View All 1,019 Santorini Cruise Port Reviews

SibenikLocals seemed unfriendly to the point of rudeness and woe betide if you didnt have the local currency! Strolling along the waterfront was beautiful and the old buildings were magnificent.View All 21 Sibenik Cruise Port Reviews
