Default pacific princess-too small?

I have sailed on several ships in the princess line. The smallest one being the sun, a medium sized ship. I am booked on the Pacific Princess on May 7th to Tahiti, and am concerned that the ship is so small it might lack some of the activities that the larger ships have. Has anyone been on the Pacific, or Tahitian princess. If so I would really appreciate any information.

My wife and I sailed on a 24 day voyage on the Pacific Princess in September, 2004 from Tahiti to Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The ship is very elegant and all services were first class. The evening entertainment was good, but not up the the standards of the larger ships owing to the size of the theater. As for activities, there was bridge and trivia games, but outside of that you are on your own. Bring several books and enjoy the rest because if you are looking for night life or a lot of activities I believe you have wasted your money. As for our rating of the cruise I would give it a B+. Hope it helps....John

Thanks for the reply. My sister and I are in our mid fifties and not really into the nightlife. Nickle slots at the casino and Kareoke, are exciting enough for us. We have cruised many times before and always enjoyed it. We are looking mainly for relaxation, and sun and sea breeze. I guess I was just wondering about the differences between the ships of different sizes. Does this effect the dining options as well? Thanks again for the reply. beverly

We sailed on the Pacific Princess last July on the Pacific Islands cruise. It is a very elegant ship and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Didn't think we would like a smaller ship but preferred it over the Grand. There is one main dining room, the two specialty dining rooms and at night they have another section set up for informal dining. The food was very good. The library was a lot larger than the one on the grand. We would go on her again.

Smaller ships have their own charm. You don't feel lost in the crowd, the crew gets to know you (not just your cabin steward), and you'll find that you don't need the attractions of the bigger ships. Those are just compensation for what has been lost in the transition from cruising to floating vacations.
