Ports advertised. Dining staff was wonderful as was our cabin steward. Port excursion in Kotor, Montenegro was well below Princess standards. It was advertised as a dining experience with an experience chef in a private home. It was supposed to be a three hour tour. The food was poor and was not a meal. The food was also not presented well and would be considered a snack at the very least. The tour lasted less than two hours as well. All of this for $99.00. The port in Ravenna, Italy was 30 minutes from the town of Ravenna and if you wanted to leave the ship there was a $26.00 fee for a bus to take you to Ravenna. It appeared to be a relevently new port and offered little to do. There was very little information regarding transportation options when you left the ship at ports if you were not on a ship excursion. The staff on the Pacific Princess was very friendly and accommodating on the cruise making the time on the boat enjoyable. Read Less

The Pacific Princess is the smallest ship in the Princess fleet with only around 650 passengers. This was our first time to sail on a small ship and maybe our last. With a few notable exceptions, it seemed like we were sailing with a second or third rate crew. Princess must have their first teamers on the larger ships and use their smallest ship as a training ground. Service, entertainment and the quality of food was nowhere close to what we experienced on the Regal Princess last year. The Spa Director Radu was plain rude and obnoxious and his staff mostly inexperienced. Service and food in the Main Dining Room were well below par. However, the food in the specialty restaurants and grill was above average and service there was great. Breakfast in Sabatini's each morning was especially rewarding. All of the waiters in the lounge areas were pleasant and tried to remember your name. Lindsay, the future sales consultant/Concierge was spectacular and helped us with our disembarkation plans. Also, our cabin steward did a great job. 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. Read Less
