Great ship, but not for everyone

A much smaller ship than most are accustomed to. Not a great ship for families with younger children as there are limited entertainment for the younger crowd. We found it very relaxing without the crush of 3000+ passengers you get on most ships, yet still with plenty to do and entertainers comparable to those on larger ships. The food was quite good. Being a smaller ship, we got to know the staff and most of them called us by name. It was truly a "boutique" experience.

 

Our cruise was a Panama canal transit. Larger ships may now be able to go through the canal, but the newer locks are somewhat boring compared to the old, narrow locks with their locomotive "mules".

 

Bottom line, if you need 24/7 entertainment, choose a larger ship. If you like a more relaxed atmosphere, choose the Pacific Princess.

2017 Panama Canal Transit

this is the perfect cruise for mature travelers! The Pacific Princess is a tidy & cozy ship with the ambiance of extensive wood paneling and old fashioned dekor. I personally appreciated being located on Deck 7 which meant that there were only two flights of easily managed stairs up to either the buffet or pool and down to the restaurant, theater, shops or casino.

I also enjoyed the opportunity to relax during the many days at sea, port time was limited to just 5 calls!

while on our cruise I had an allergic reaction to Dramamine    The medical team on the ship was awesome.   From the moment my husband called them to our state room and a follow up call everyday to assure I was still doing ok.   This was not what anyone wants while on a cruise but it is nice to know they have the expertise staff.   I also enjoyed every port we visited.  An awesome European vacation.  Love

We enjoyed nightly cocktails in the Pacific Lounge.  Panoramic views were wonderful.  We also like our minisuit, but thought the tub was quite dangerous to use.  Very difficult to get in and out of the tub.  Walk in shower would be preferred.

You need to be ok with a more intimate shipboard experience, but I thought that added a special flavor to the trip.

Only take this ship if you are going somewhere that requires a small vessel. Bring a ton of sunblock and good velcro water shoes. I recommend Keen.

There are no lines, when you dine on the lido deck, and the only line is if you go to the dinning room early.
