Pacific Princess
Princess Cruises

Built in 1971 -- 20,000 tons -- 640 passengers (double capacity)


Pacific Princess was the original “love boat” and setting for the television series The Love Boat from 1977 to 1987. Some say she was the series’ star. 

Pacific Princess passengers will find the gym equipped with Lifecycles and Hydro Fitness exercise equipment and a jogging track is located on the top deck of the ship. 

Two larger than normal accessible staterooms are available on the Pacific Princess with 32” wide doorways and bathrooms fitted to land-based ADA standards. 

Guests are able to choose from more than 450 items on the Pacific Princess’ main dining menu each week. 

White-gloved waiters in formal attire serve Pacific Princess passengers British-style afternoon tea to the accompaniment of easy-listening music. 

Dishes prepared tableside are a Pacific Princess tradition and might include Caesar salad, pasta, and flaming desserts. 

The Pacific Princess has two swimming pools, one with a retractable dome for inclement weather. 

80% of the staterooms on Pacific Princess have a sea view.
