Wonderful cruise around the British Isles.

The cruise was filled with events that will keep you occupied. Weather turns out to be great when we reached a port. Onshore excursions were well organized. However, our tour bus was trapped in traffic getting back to the pier at Dublin. Several lanes of traffic were merged into one lane only thus causing us to be late by as much as 30 mins. However Princess was excellent in handling this situation. They telephoned the guide and waited for us. Exciting trip.

Terrible Food, Poor Service

Due to mechanical problems, we did not leave Dover until the next day and had to miss our first port, St. Helier. Huge disappointment. We loved Waterford, Dublin, and Edinburgh. The food on the cruise was the absolute worst food we have experienced. Old, inedible, disgusting in the main dining room, buffet, everywhere. We ate off ship in every port. Other than our wonderful room steward, service was poor. We will never cruise Princess again.

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!

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.

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.
