I am a first time cruiser so the thought of flying half way around the world to get on a ship for 17 days did NOT interest me at all but as this was to be a family reunion for my husbands family I nervously went along. Wow ....that was my best decision ever. From the moment we boarded until we disembarked we had the most enjoyable time. As a family group of 15 in total we could catch up but then disappear and do our own thing. The cabin ( cabin 6027 with a verandah , mid ship forward) was marvellous , a tad squishy but we had 4 suitcases and a carry on ...all eventually fitted nicely under our bed. Themis our cabin steward was a legend keeping us in clean towels often as we are constant gym and jogging people. The gym was adequate for our needs , clean and tidy. The spa was expensive by any comparison but the salon side for hair and nails was great. The food couldn't be faulted and we visited the 2 signature restaurants twice each and for the extra US $25 pp it was great value. Daniel and the boys, anoop, Lawrence , Henry and others are brilliant and made our meals and trip in general so memorable. We loved this ship because of its size with only approx 670 passengers.... A few kids but they weren't too bad and I believe most were officers kids that were on the trip to spend Xmas with dad and 3 from our group. We did do a tour in Mexico and one at our disembarkation port of Fort Lauderdale....both ok but we walked in Columbia and Aruba as we would rather do our own thing. Crew are good to ask about ports as well. Good to note is that if you need to fly out later at night from either Miami or Fort Lauderdale the ship offers trips for the morning that will drop you at the air port ...your luggage stays on your bus and is cared for by the driver while you are sight seeing. Miami airport also has a hotel that supplies day rooms so you can have either the full day or a half day for about $125us to rest and freshen up ...with asking travel agent or looking into your self. We enjoyed this cruise so much we are booking other for the same time in 2017 this time either around Australia or to NZ. Read Less

Princess cruises made our first cruise experience so perfect that we're already thinking of doing it again. Everything was so systematically done from the embarkation to the disembarkation day. We really had a hassle-free vacation but what we loved most was the warmth and kindness of the ship's crew members. Everyone made us feel so comfortable while maintaining a high level of professionalism. They are so quick and efficient too and the food was always very good. There were just enough activities so no one gets bored. The ship is a little old but very well maintained and we loved the classy ancient look of the interior, it was like being taken back in time. I would definitely recommend cruising with Pacific Princess to anyone. Read Less

We did a land tour first and then a seven night cruise southwards of the Inside Passage on the Pacific Princess. This was our first cruise and we are now hooked. The land tour which was also organised by Princess was well planned, we had a great Tour Director with us who was very knowledgable and helpful, and we felt we learned a great deal about life in Alaska. The boarding process at Anchorage was well organised and we enjoyed being on a smaller ship of 670 passengers and around 300 crew. Food was excellent, particularly the buffet, the staff were attentive and cheerful, entertainment and presentations were also great and there were also lots of viewing areas on the boat without feeling too crowded. Our inside cabin 8036 was also great, plenty of storage, quiet, comfy bed and pillows and a lovely cabin steward. Good value for money as we were only in it to sleep. We thoroughly enjoyed our time on Pacific Princess and would recommend to others. Read Less
