The 30,277-ton, 686-passenger cruise ship Pacific Princess offers some of the line's most exotic routes in Europe, Asia and South America, including a 107-night World Cruise, starting January to Venice, Italy from Ft. Lauderdale. The two ships were bought in 2002 from Renaissance Cruises (now-defunct), and are the smallest ships in the Princess' fleet. With its dark wood and luxury interiors, Pacific Princess resembles a stately manor house or country inn. The more intimate size facilitates amicability and passengers do not have to be surprised if the personnel knows their name and says hello when they pass by.
Pacific Princess itinerary program is based on more exotic destinations compared to her larger fleetmates. Pacific sails on a World Cruise out of Fort Lauderdale FL, starting in January each year.
Most Pacific Princess staterooms are 170-sq.foot balcony rooms (170). Almost 75% of ship's outside accommodations have private balcony views. There are a total of 338 staterooms in 25 categories. 5 are the wheelchair accessible rooms. The largest aboard Pacific Princess are the Balcony Suites (580 ft2).
As opposed to Princess' larger vessels, Pacific Princess doesn't feature a versatile dining option. There are early and late shifts at 6 and 8:15 p.m. But the vessel offers line's popular alternative dining venues: Sabatini's, the signature Italian restaurant, asks passengers to choose their main entree only, and a parade of hot and cold appetizers, salads, and pastas are automatically served; The Sterling Steakhouse offers traditional favorites, focusing on top-quality steaks complemented by an international wine list. (Note: Due to the small size of the cruise ship, the dining venues alternate the nights they are open).

Evening entertainment revolves around ship's Cabaret Lounge, equipped with a state-of-the-art lighting and sound system. It presents a full schedule of options, such as variety shows, live music, first-run movies. Live piano music is offered at the Casino Bar. The adjacent casino provides slot machines and table games. Sea days include destination-specific lectures, as well as classes on computer technology and photography (all part of Princess' ScholarShip@Sea program).
