The smaller the ship, the farther you can go. Princess takes this concept to new distances with its Small Ships of Princess®, featuring the Pacific Princess. With room for just 680 travelers, the Pacific Princess makes the cruise line’s grandest voyages – specifically, world itineraries encompassing multiple continents, with stops in major cities and small coastal towns. You literally and figuratively get up close to a range of cultures, all while Princess’ familiar amenities accompany you between each exotic destination.
About The Ship
With an 11-deck design, the Pacific Princess originally debuted in 1999 as part of the former Renaissance Cruises. Princess took over the ship in 2003. The latest round of refurbishments followed in 2010. Now, the ship sails all over the globe, with short and long itineraries in California, Alaska, Hawaii, the South Pacific, the Mexican Riviera, the Middle East, the Mediterranean, and Asia. But no matter where you decide to go, consider how you want to spend your time, first with living accommodations. Cruisers have a choice of the following: • 10 suites with private balconies • 52 mini-suites with private balconies • 170 balcony cabins • 80 ocean view cabins • 26 inside cabins Out of this total, you’ll five 232 with balcony views, and five with wheelchair access. As well, consider how you’ll dine. Princess is known for its versatility, with standard, upscale, and casual options onboard all ships, and for the quality meals prepared, no matter which spot you select. The basic options include: Traditional: Inside the Club Restaurant, you’ll have the typical cruise dining experience, with fixed seating, scheduled mealtimes, and wait staff bringing all meals to your table. Specialty: Get a truly outstanding meal in the ship’s own restaurants. Try some Italian in Sabatini’s or a mouth-watering meal at the Sterling Steakhouse. Casual: Eat on the run, dine at any time of the day, and select a meal of your choosing with the Panorama Buffet, the Patisserie, the pizzeria, the Deck Barbecue, afternoon tea, or 24-hour room service.
After seeing one part of the world, the enjoyment and excitement don’t end once you step back on the ship. Princess continues them as you sail to the next port with a range of entertainment options. Stay active during the day with the Main Pool, the jogging track, or the Lotus spa, gym, and fitness center. After all, you can’t ever be too ready to take on the next challenge once the ship docks in its next destination. But if you want to stay active without breaking a major sweat, consider spending some time in the golf practice cage or the shuffleboard court. As you experience each new destination, do you know what will lie ahead? Be more than prepared by sitting in a Scholarship@Sea enrichment class, researching in the 24-hour internet café, or reading up in the library. As the sun sets, consider how you plan to spend your evening. Keep the excitement up by heading over to the casino, or relax and see a performance in the Cabaret Lounge, the Club Bar, the Pool Bar, or the Casino Bar.
