Default Pacific Princess

Family of 4 going on the PP 8/18/02. If you have sailed on her recently please answer a few questions:
1. Who was the Cruise Director
2. Is the ship being maintained or is it just being allowed to die a slow death?
3. How are things in Bermuda? The last time we were there there was some tension with the native Bermudians and the Jamacians. Is it safe there?
Thank you.

We sailed on the PP during the week of May 19th. Chris Nichol is the very talented and gracious cruise director. He performs in the 3 production shows which are very good. The ship, as you know, is thirty years old. She is maintained as well as she can be, but she can't help but show her age. We did not detect any tension among the people living in Bermuda. We felt quite safe, although we did not go ashore in the evenings because we had a great deal of rain, especially at night. Please email me if you have a ny other questions. Enjoy cruising on a very special ship in cruising history.

I was on the Princess last August.

1. Chris Nichol was the CD and I agree with Sandie--he's absolutely great! A wonderful performer and an all-around good guy, makes everyone feel special. Seems to have trouble keeping up with doing his laundry though (that was a running joke--he was always running off after he started the Bingo games to do something so he used his laundry as his excuse).
2. Yes, the ship is showing her age but the people make up for it. The staff is warm and friendly. And it's a small ship so it's easy to make friends with other fellow cruisers.
3. We took several shore excursions including the bus tour to see the caverns and a glass bottom boat ride where we saw sea turtles. In Hamilton, we walked around but stayed on the main streets. Everyone was friendly.

Go, have fun. You'll have a great time!
