Ports. Ports. Ports. The Pacific Princess is a small ship that can visit smaller ports that larger ships can only tender. That part of it we really liked. We didn't like being confined to our cabin during Tropical Storm Arlene ... Read more

The cabin was totally outdated. There needs to be better accommodations when you have a third person in the room. Paying $2900. and sleeping on a generic pullout is unacceptable. There was not enough onboard activities. Two ports were ... Read more

This was a marvelous cruise that began in Venice and was to end in Barcelona. We had a gorgeous suite on deck 7 (an wonderful upgrade) -- it was very spacious and well appointed, with an incredible wrap-around balcony. Our steward, ... Read more

We've sailed on over 26 cruises with PRINCESS. This was our first on the small Pacific Princess. It was very easy to get around the ship and the entire staff was friendly & approachable; it's perfect for cruisers who like a 'family' ... Read more

This was my first cruise on a smaller ship. It was our 40th anniversary and we wanted to visit Venice and ports in the Adriatic Sea. The itinerary was excellent. The weather did not co-operate though. Our best investment was the $3 rain ... Read more

After spending a few pre-cruise days in Venice, we boarded the Island Princess, our first time with them so we were naturally wondering what we would find! The boarding was quite good, everything ran smoothly; the cabin was ready and ... Read more

It was a shame what the corporate office did when they decided to add 200 more rooms on the ship. Apparently they didn't account for the 400 more passengers to eat in the main dining room. We had my time dining and most nights were given ... Read more

My husband and I have more than 30 cruises under our belt, however, we usually do not use one cruise line. We select our cruises based on itineraries. The selection of this cruise was based on the ports and because my sister and her ... Read more

Although we'd previously visited some of these ports/countries in past independent travel, this was our first repositioning/ Transatlantc cruise. The refurbished rooms on the Island Princess were an improvement over what we remembered from ... Read more

We relied on the very good reviews of this ship when we booked our cruise late in 2014, and the resulting high rating of the ship , but unfortunately most of the reviews and the resulting rating predates renovations that were recently ... Read more

We set sail from Venice on 14th October. We were at the rear of the ship in cabin C716, I agree with other contributors about the vibration particularly at night, more of a nuisance when it occurred, especially at night. Our steward was ... Read more

We originally booked one of the new stern cabins, but after reading some of the early reviews decided to move. We booked B615 on Baha deck and had no trouble with the engine vibration(s). Embarkation: went smoothly - until we received ... Read more

We spent a delightful three nights in Venice before our cruise. We stayed at the Hotel Olimpa. Good location near water taxis. Great breakfast and nice canal side location. The ship was older but recently redone and nice enough. We ... Read more

We chose this cruise for the itinerary. It was our first cruise so had nothing to compare it to and no idea what to expect from Princess. Overall, we were impressed and will definitely cruise again. Majority of the passengers were Brits ... Read more

We really enjoyed this cruise especially the sail out of Venice. I have sailed into and out of Venice with Princess before and it's a real delight - do it while you can, it may not always be an option with the potential sinking of Venice! ... Read more
