Sharon----You will enjoy the Pacific Princess. She is a little over 30,000 ton but she is endowed with so many nice features. She was formerly R3 of the Ren ships. We sailed on R1 of the same fleet and they are all the same R1 thru R8.
You will enjoy.
Cruising on Ruby Princess: September 22, 2015. 10 Days, From New York to Quebec City. My 98th Cruise!
Does anyone know anything about the Pacific Princess? We're booked on her for August & not sure what to do on such a small ship......have never been on one & looking forward to it.......
Just curious if it feels small or not........
Fear not! The Pacific Princess is one of the R ships and my favorite ships. I sailed on 3 of the R ships and I have also cruised on the Azamara Journey which is an R ship that Azamra purchased.
You will find just about everything on the Pacific Princess that you would find on a larger ship, but on a smaller scale. The show lounge is a "lounge" but the dining room and the two alternative dining rooms will give you a nice variety. The buffet area will be smaller but still quite good.
If you are booking a balcony, book the lowest category balcony you can get because all of the balcony cabins on deck 6 and 7 are exactly alike. The size is about 168 sq. ft and about the same size as a Dawn class Princess ship and very well laid out.
If you have any reservations about going you can cancel and I'll go with Larry.
Take care and have fun!
