Of all the ships we have been our favorites are, Seven Seas Voyager, Prinsendam, Pacific Princess (R-3), Seven Seas Navigator and Seven Seas Mariner. These five ships run between 28,550 gross tons and 48,075 gross tons, or 490 guests to 835 guests. Every one of them is equipped for and suited for extended voyages circumnavigating the globe. The largest ship we have been on was 141,200 gross tons or 3,560 guests.
My comments regarding vessel size on our last cruise about nine weeks ago, Pacific Princess: "Excellent ship, confirms my preference for the smaller vessels. We both agree we like ships this size best, doubtful if we do much cruising in the future if all we have are the gigantic's to choose from. The smallest in the Princess fleet, a little over 30,000 gross tons with approximately 650 guests. In my opinion, more staff per guest, more space per guest and much less pushing and shoving than we have seen in quite some time on the high seas, plus much more quality and personal service. The library on this vessel is outstanding. The largest and quietest we have ever seen on any ship. Truly a library for a vessel engaging in lengthy exploratory voyages."
