It's quite sad that they could not keep that ship in service.

Sharon, It does make me sad. For the 10 months that I waited from booking my first cruise on Festivale until we sailed I watched that show faithfully. Dreaming and enjoying the excitement and anticipation. It does give me a sadness to see her go. I enjoyed the Mexican Riviera many times over on Pacific Princess every week.

I was also a fan of the Love Boat and have watched every episode.

Default wonderful days

Helen and I have spent many wonderful days on board the Pacific and Island Princess.

We Sailed 89 days on Pacific and 43 days on her sister the Island Princess. Both were exactly alike.

I can tell many stories while onboard these ships. I guess I will take them to my grave.

Ray, It would be so wonderful if you could put them all down on paper. Your stories, your memories and your photos would make a wonderful book for many to enjoy.
