  • Destination: the British Isles & Western Europe
  • Cabin Type: Mini-Suite with Balcony

We loved the Princess small ships and the Pacific Princess is the last of them. We boarded her in Dover for a trip around the British Isles. Boarding was a simple process, no long queues and very efficient through security. The whole process took less than 30 minutes.

The condition of the ship was excellent. The furnishings looked near new and the décor was bright and cheery. The ship never appeared overcrowded and the level of service was excellent. We went club class, which meant we could do anytime dining as opposed to the fixed dining times for other passengers. The dining staff were very attentive and nothing was too much trouble. The service was so good in fact that we never used the buffet.

There was never a queue for the main dining room breakfast regardless of what type of cabin you booked.

The quality of the food was excellent. Steaks etc were cooked to perfection. If you ask for medium rare you got medium rare. The Maitra D’s were always visible and checking if everything was ok. This is in contrast to other cruises we have been on where you rarely saw them.

Our stateroom was in excellent condition. The fittings and furniture appeared near new and the bed was very comfortable. Our room steward, Kennedy, kept the suite very clean and was happy to meet all our little extra requests.

The guest entertainers were great. At the start of the cruise we had Mat Cairns, who played and sang a mix of Irish Scottish and rock and roll songs. It sounds like an odd combination but it worked very well. Towards the end of the cruise we had Nik Page, who was the best entertainer we have experienced on any cruise. He was outstanding with a rich voice and a little bit of comedy on drums thrown in. If you get the opportunity to see this guy, please do so.

In summary a great ship, excellent staff and great itinerary
