Fantastic small ship by TShea

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Pacific Princess / Destination: Transatlantic

Great experience with this small ship, only 600+ passengers. Allows you to meet more passengers and the crew to know you.

Fantastic itinerary and ship! by marwalt7

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Pacific Princess / Destination: Europe - Mediterranean

We had a fantastic time on this cruise both because of the itinerary and because of the fabulous crew on the Pacific Princess. The small ship experience was great, easy to get from one place to another and so many wonderful crew members and friendly passengers.

Wonderful way to see Norway’s beauty by Mitchab

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Pacific Princess / Destination: Europe - Northern Europe

I would recommend this cruise to everyone who is interested in the natural beauty, history, and culture of Norway. The best way to experience the midnight sun, fiords and waterfalls of Norway’s west coast. The small Pacific Princess ship is ideal because it can sail into the fiords and smaller towns. Also the ship is easy to navigate and the service is very good.

It was our worst ‘vacation’ experience ever !!! by drcaligari

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Pacific Princess / Destination: World Cruise

The best part of our cruise was when we left the ship in Maui. The crew and management refused to address the fact that we were forced to be in a room that was inferior to what we had paid for !!! If this ship were used to transport troops to war zones — they would complain about these accommodations!!!

Transatlantic Cruise on Small Ocean Cruise Ship by draronson

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Pacific Princess / Destination: Transatlantic

This cruise was a wonderful experience for both my wife and me. We especially enjoy the "days at sea" and the transatlantic aspect included eight consecutive days at sea crossing the Atlantic Ocean. There is nothing like sitting on your balcony and seeing nothing but ocean waters all around you. It gives you a perspective on the world and the universe around you.

Relaxing small ship by davegolieri

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Pacific Princess / Destination: Transatlantic

Pacific Princess is a relaxing small ship. What you give up is movies under the stars and evening shows. We loved eating on the open deck behind the buffet.

November Mediterranean Cruise Experience by NorCalCruiser

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Pacific Princess / Destination: Europe - Mediterranean

Very good itinerary and ports were interesting and varied. Weather in November was unpredictable, but lack of crowds in most major tourist areas more than made up for the spotty rain or scattered showers we encountered. Our guide in Pompeii said we visited on the least crowded day he had ever seen! Same for San Marino (excursion from port of Ravenna). Would highly recommend travelling in off season!

Wonderful cruise around the British Isles. by phoebe626

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Pacific Princess / Destination: Europe - Western Europe

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 by grlgrdgate

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Pacific Princess / Destination: Europe - Western Europe

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 by wfredb

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Pacific Princess / Destination: Panama Canal, Central America

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 by rebarlow

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Pacific Princess / Destination: Panama Canal, Central America

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.

Medical care by rncherih

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Pacific Princess / Destination: Europe - Mediterranean

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

14 Night Iceland & NorwayN by Cruiser85058558

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Pacific Princess / Destination: Scandinavia

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.

Enjoyable, relaxing cruise by zundert565

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Pacific Princess / Destination: Europe - Northern Europe

My most favorite part was the visit to Spitsbergen with close second visit to Scotland. The shows were terrific and with matinee shows offered made the cruise more enjoyable.

The negative aspect of the cruise was the music - it was deafening and absolutely not compatible with the majority of senior passengers.

Great ship which was just perfect size. Good food and friendly staff. Nice itinerary. Bad news was the continuing hard sell on all the extras: photos, tours, shops, casino, exercise programs,

So good but some big issues by lisabutler

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Pacific Princess / Destination: Europe - Northern Europe

The chef was great and the food in both the dining room and buffet were excellent. We enjoyed the entertainment - they had quite a variety in the bars and on stage. We liked the small ship and met several people that we really enjoyed. We were in stateroom 8000 and had issues with cigarette smoke in the room and heavy in the hallway for way too many days and nights. The smoke seems to comes down the stairs from the smoking area on the pool deck because the door sticks open. The bed was really awful and there is only set seating where you sit with the same people night after night. People complained the early dining 5:45 was too early and 7:45 was too late.
