    Pacific Princess Questions

    We sailed on her just before she had her refurbishment in 2017. This time they are pulling her out of the water to take care of some structural things or so one of the engineer officers told us. I do agree that she looks great. Now if they would only replace the faded images in the buffet...

    If you would drop me an e mail at charliekirby@comcast.net I will forward the photos to you. I'm not tech savvy enough to figure out how to embed photos with this new format.

    Pacific Princess Questions

    We have already signed up for one of her cruises. She is a fabulous little ship and will really be able to get into some of those ports. We did Alaska about 20 years ago on the Sky and are looking forward to seeing it again on our favorite ships. She is going into dry dock next year, so hopefully all the cabins will see the improvements that we noted in the suites.

    They are on my hubby's phone. I will have him send them to me.

    Pacific Princess sofabed

    A bit of both, actually. It's L shaped, so there's a part of it that flips out, like a regular sofa bed and then sets upon the short leg of the L (it that makes any sense. It is queen size and comes with a down topper. We had our GD staying on one and my hubby tried it out and said it was very comfortable. I hope you will find it the same. I think we took pictures if you'd like them.

    We just got back and the sofa beds in the OS are great. I don't know if this holds true in all the suites.

    Pacific Princess

    She's our favorite ship in the fleet. We are sailing in six weeks. Can't wait! Thank you for this!

    Had a great time on the Pacific Princess

    Oh, no, that would make me very sad. He is such a great addition to the dining room staff. I know that he was taking a couple months off around last May while the ship did her refurbishing. Hopefully he was only gone a little while.

    Had a great time on the Pacific Princess

    Thanks so very much for this great review. PP is our favorite ship and I hope that she will continue to be part of the Princess line for a good long time. Can you tell me if Oscar (Matre'd hotel) was on board? It's great that you enjoy the CC so much. Our upcoming cruise will be the first time with the option, so we are looking forward to it. Glad you had such a great trip!

    14 Day Baltic Cruise on Pacific Princess

    She does have Chef's Table. The best thing to do is for you or your hubby to go straight to the dining room once you've boarded and put in your request with Oscar. They work really hard to make sure everyone who asks gets a chance to experience it. I remember the port of Stockholm to be very nice. There was a grocery store just as you come out. If you like checking out grocery stores, it was fun. There were also ATMs there. I remember it being open, very clean, and walkable. We didn't overnight there, unfortunately, as it's a lovely city and everyone was so friendly! We went to the Museum of Music to see the ABBA special exhibit and then took a Ho-Ho bus. Definitely the way to see the city. Charlie

    14 Day Baltic Cruise on Pacific Princess

    Hey, Carolyn, You are in for a treat. The Pacific is such a lovely ship and I hope you fall in love with her the way we did. We took her on this cruise and it was such fun. The at sea days will be your formal dinners, so it you don't want to miss that, I would suggest either the sail away from St. Petersburg or Helsinki. The Kiel Canal was pretty, but I can't remember it being really picturesque sailing out of it. Have a lovely, lovely time on our favorite ship!
  14. I did not say that. Apparently you misread my response. We enjoy the small ship. If Princess sells the Pacific, then we will head over to Oceania. We would miss Oscar, but it wouldn't stop us from sailing on the Pacific. And, yes, that ship does mean that much to us.
