Pacific Princess – a very friendly small ship.

Small ships get into unique destinations. British cruisers may be familiar with the the Regatta Class Cruise Ship, Adonia, which was one of our favourite ships. This is a sister ship, the series being built by by Chantiers de l’Atlantique at their shipyard in St. Nazaire, France. The Pacific Princess is one of eight in the class. The Regatta, Nautica, Insignia and Sirena are all of Oceania Cruises and the other three are all now with Azamara Club Cruises. This one has the Princess Cruises stylish touch, but still offers the peaceful relaxing holiday you might want from a small ship that can get to the eclectic destinations larger ships cannot, like Bequia. The piano bar is a charming evening, that makes you wish you could sing. In June 2017, she had a 2-week dry dock to get a new livery, 700 new beds, refurbishment of all the 336 cabins and several dining venues, updated Atrium, Sterling Steakhouse, Sabatini’s Restaurant, The Club Restaurant, The Panorama Buffet, and pool deck, so it feels like Carnival have no intention to let Royal Caribbean take this fourth ship for Azamara. This romantic ship has 9 decks, a length of 181 meters, the ship can cruise at 18 knots with 678 guests in 338 cabins. The Princess Luxury Bed is now available on this ship. Pacific Princess will have mainly adult passengers.
