Princess retains it values with this little ship.
"Am a past Princess passenger with 3 decades of wonderful experiences with the line, until recently. I have found a sad downturn in the products service levels over the past 5 years or so, which includes, staffing,..."Read More

Wonderful cruise of the UK and Ireland on a lovely, gracious ship

We chose this cruise (September 9-23, 2019; roundtrip Dover, England) both for the itinerary and to experience the “small ship” atmosphere of the Pacific Princess. We were not disappointed by either. Indeed, we would sail both this itinerary and this ship again. Embarkation: We booked a few nights in a London hotel (The JW Marriott Grovesnor House) through Princess, which included transfers ...

First time on a ship this small. I quite liked the ability to walk anywhere on the ship within 1.5 minutes. However, the smaller scale does significantly limit the entertainment options. The stuff the do on board was bingo, knitting, wine tasting or soduko...; Evening entertainment had a mediocre skill level vs the bigger ships. There were no kid activities offered. The staff remember you and ...

We chose this cruise for several reasons, which are as follows: 1. Time of the year 2. I was raised in Edinburgh & wanted to see the Tattoo one more time. It was as good as I remember and then some! 3. Spent time in London area with cousin & finally got to see Highclere and Hampton Court both of which were on our bucket list. 4. We have never visited the ports on this cruise, and loved ...

Background information My husband and I are in our 80s, and I use a small mobility scooter to help me get around. This was his first cruise on Princess and 16th cruise on commercial cruise ships (he was in the Navy for 20 years so he has been on other cruises) and my third Princess cruise and my 29th cruise overall. I booked this cruise primarily to visit four ports that we had not been to ...

Two main reasons were only flying one way (transatlantic crossing to Dover) and Norway. Embarkation in Ft. Lauderdale was the fastest of any cruise (only ship in port). This was the first small ship we have sailed on and completely different from large ships. You get to know most passengers and crew on a long cruise. Besides the production shows, the entertainment is scarce. The stateroom was ...

We chose this cruise for the itinerary and small ship cruising experience. We have been on a few cruises on ex Renaissance ships and know these well, but a first time for us with Princess. The itinerary was great despite losing 3 ports due to weather issues (Belfast was added). Some may complain that Princess only provided $250/person but we found it to be fair compared to other lines policies ...

We chose this trip because of the itinerary which, because of high seas and storm Hector, was not all it could have been. We missed three ports and substituted one with a $250 credit for all three missed ports. Considering the ship did not have to pay port fees for these missed stops and the two in Scotland were especially important to many on board, we felt this was a very small credit. Also, ...

We have voyaged on the Pacific Princess for almost two months. Our first on this vessel was in November and December 2016. I posted an excellent review back then and this ship still remains one of our favorites. However, since then on this ship, there has been a little improvement here and there and some degradation. Which has resulted in my dropping the previous rating. Let me begin with the ...

I had heard many good things about Princess Cruise Line and I found the right itinerary and dates. Reality, a little disappointing. The Pacific Princess (a.k.a. reborn "Love Boat") is a small ship carrying 600+ passengers. Overall the ship is very nice. Few venues, public rooms elegantly appointed: Library reading room a la "Downton Abby-esque". I sailed on a back to back from Venice to Fort ...

We love this small ship and usually like to leave home during the holiday season. We had a bit of weather and missed the port in Cadiz. We have done this crossing many times at this time of year and I feel 8 straight sea days is too much, The other cruises stopped some where else like Morocco, Azores, Tunisia or the Caribbean to break up the crossing. It was nice to have Sammy as the cruise ...
