The NEW Pacific & Tahitian Princesses

And the question of the hour is... what will they look like inside? 

While Princess Cruises will no doubt modify the decor before the Tahitian Princess takes her place on the French Polynesian cruise scene in December 2002, there are some basics that won't likely change. For instance, the stateroom floor plans. Here then, are the floor plans as they appeared in the last Renaissance Cruises brochure.

Suite: 786-962 square feet


Mini-Suite: 322 square feet


Ocean View With Balcony: 216 square feet


Ocean View: 146-165 square feet


Ocean View: 146-165 square feet


Inside: 156 square feet

Passenger Cabins: 344 total:  317 outside (92%) and 27 inside; 232 with private balcony (73% of outside); 10 suites; 52 mini-suites; 3 wheelchair-accessible

Cabin Amenities: Television with CNN, ESPN and first-run movies, VCR, personal safe, refrigerators, hair dryer, 110/120v current

Only suites were outfitted with  refrigerators when the ships sailed in the Renaissance Cruises fleet. I always considered that a drawback and it appears that Princess will add them to all cabins. The balcony and standard staterooms are just TOO nice otherwise to not have that feature, one that is almost considered a necessity on modern, premium ships.

Pictured is a typical balcony stateroom in Renaissance's "Laura Ashley"-inspired style.
