Default Tahitian Princess

we are looking into sailing tahiti in march, but have heard varied comments, many of which were negative. i realize one bad experience can cause 10 days of unhappiness, so if anyone has sailed on on the tahitian, i would appreciate any comments, especially what type of food, standard cruise cuisine or island fare is served. i did check reader reviews, but none current.

Jack,

we are looking into sailing tahiti in march, but have heard varied comments, many of which were negative. i realize one bad experience can cause 10 days of unhappiness, so if anyone has sailed on on the tahitian, i would appreciate any comments, especially what type of food, standard cruise cuisine or island fare is served. i did check reader reviews, but none current.

My last Princess cruise was aboard MV Tahitian Princess during her inaugural season (2003). Overall, the cruise was typical of what I had come to expect from Princess -- standard Princess menus, good shows, decent casino, and the usual range of Princess activities. The ship also has two alternative restauarants (Sabatini's Trattoria and Sterling Steakhouse) in addition to the main dining room and the buffet area. There were a few elements of the ship that were not up to the standards of Princess's newest ships, but there were also plans in the works to upgrade those elements. The ship also rode very well in wide open waters. Overall, I would recommend this vessel, or on either of her sisters in the Princess fleet (MV Pacific Princess and MV Royal Princess) to anybody who is satisfied with Princess.

That said, you should be aware that a small ship has more limited facilities than a larger vessel and consequently cannot offer all of the choices of Princess's larger vessels. In particular, these vessels do not offer "Anytime Dining" and they have only one show room, which therefore presents a different show each evening. Also, the alternative restuarants operated on alternate evenings during my cruise.

I hope that this helps!

Norm.
