Pacific Princess is the smallest of the Princess fleet, with a capacity of only 670 passengers. When I booked, all the suites were sold out, so I booked a mini-suite, which was later upgraded to Club Class. Right after I paid the fare, we were upsold a forward suite (#7005, Marquesas Suite). I'm always aft, but I love those suite perks, so I jumped on it. This was the largest suite I've ever seen and had a bath and a half, with a wall of closet space, along with all the usual suite perks like that sumptuous Sabatini breakfast. Interestingly enough even though she is very tiny, Pacific Princess never felt crowded, but because she is so small, it was easier for my elderly mother to get around. The food and staff on this ship are amazing, and the maitre d' came by our table at every meal to make sure everything was going well. Chef Giuseppe was the brains behind the original Chefs Table Experience years ago, and we were thrilled to experience Chef's Table with him. This was a great cruise with a great itinerary that we would absolutely do again, no questions asked! Read Less

We had an enjoyable time on our first Princess cruise. The staff, the food, the entertainment and the Lectures were all 100%. However when first using the potable water in our cabin it was brown and had small black particles in it. One is always wary of health hazards on a ship and this was reported immediately but the situation continued for 6 days - the Asst Customer Services lady took some interest but there was no resolution nor any information as to what the contaminant was - it was intimated that it may be the residue from the pipes following maintenance (about which we had not been warned or advised!). On the final day the Customer Services Director contacted us by phone but had no answers - throughout the cruise he, like the General manager, had been conspicuous by their absence - what do they do - where do they hide? One passenger had a Pomeranian dog in a buggy (complete with rattles and other toy like adornments) and constantly wheeled it around the ship - and was allowed into eating areas where she and others fed it 'tit bits' - most objectionable - many other passengers were similarly disgusted - a dog in areas serving food! Unacceptable. The internet did not work which bearing in mind this was a 19 day cruise was annoying but this may not have been due to the ship or the company - we know that satellite comms can be unreliable. The SOLAS briefing was good but distraction arose from crew members talking and a supervisor giving Muster crew their instructions whilst the commentary was underway. Read Less

We like cruising on smaller ships,having already cruised on the Royal Princess twice, and were really attracted by this itinerary. Our Princess arranged flight to Venice(BA)was on time and Princess reps met us & the transfer to the ship was quick,as was embarkation. For a charge of 15$ each there was an unlimited ship's shuttle to St Mark's Square. This was very convenient as we had an overnight in Venice. The ship was what we had expected--our stateroom very comfortable,I like the sofa ,the flat screen TV & ample storage. The balcony to me is invaluable & this was quite private. The ship has a wonderful library with games,jig saws etc as well as a large number of non fiction & fiction books. The food in the Dining Room was very good & the Maitre D',Bruno, excellent. Upstairs the food was really good,the breakfast buffets especially so,& nothing was too much trouble for the crew there. There were always plenty of tables available both inside & on deck. We took 4 Princess excursions-Malta,to Taormina & MtEtna in Sicily (a wonderful trip),to Capri and to Monaco/Monte Carlo.All were good to excellent & the included lunches in Capri & on Etna were excellent. Overall this was a great cruise--the crew on this ship are so friendly in a respectful way. The itinerary exceptional-the call at Kotor-is very special. The only downside to this holiday was the number of children,that can't really be catered for on a smaller ship like the Pacific Princess. Embarkation was very smooth as was our airport transfer.

From the manner in which were were received in Seattle Port from the moment we disembarked we felt we had experienced a holiday of a lifetime. The Ships decor was like a comfortable club with beatiful furnishings all around with all the amenities we wanted. We chose a Mini Suite Stateroom which had an nice balcony view on the starboard side of the ship. The bed was very comfortable we had a bath and shower as well as plenty of space. There was a TV,fridge and a sitting area which was useful for relaxing and reading or watching T.V. This was our second cruise with Princess Line and one of their nice touches was a complementary bottle of scotch and a range soft drinks which was delivered to our cabin on arrival. The food and service in the Club restaurant was excellent and the staff appeared to be very well trained and were very helpful in ensuring my wife's gluten free diet was adhered to. Nothing was too much trouble if you wanted to depart from the menu . However our problem was what to choose as it was all so wonderful.On the last night of the cruise there was a ceremony of the Baked Alaska pudding which no doubt added to the calories attained during the fortnight onboard. The Captain, who was Italian was a bit of a character and regularly sang opera to the passengers. we were invited by him to a Cocktail Party and were given delicious cocktails as well as a bit of opera singing by him.The entertainment on the ship consisted of the latest films as well as high quality variety shows with really good dancers (the best were British). There was aslo a bit of fun during the sea days with games like Trivea where we competed with other teams.We booked eight trips in each port of call and all of them were excellent where we saw bears,whales,seals porpoises and magnificent Bald Eagles. We stopped at Ketchikan, Skagway, Valdez,Seward (Anchorage), Kodiak island, Icy Strait Point, Juneo and Victoria. All these places offered a unique experience and we were in the hands of professional and knowledgable guides, which made the trips very enjoyable. My favorite highlights were Glacier Bay Cruising, White Pass Railway at Skagway in the Yukon, Whale watching in Juneo, and the trip organised in Kodiak Island where among other amazing things we saw was the opportunity to handle King Crabs and exotic sea cucumbers. Victoria, on Victoria Island was beautiful and very like England. We also met on the ship and dined with some very nice Americans who were good company. There was a mixed crowd of young and old on the ship but there was no rowdiness or drunken behavior that have been reported on some British ships. All the people we met were quite charming and had similar aspirations to us. We are not snobs but we are discerning diners and do not tolerate fools or unsociable behaviour. Also with a smaller ship the atmosphere is more cosier.It is our opinion that Princess give excellent value for money, great comfort and luxury dining on their ships. The staff were fantastic and the overall service would put many Hotels to shame. Both my wife and I will definately book another Princess Cruise. Read Less
