…Aboard the Pacific Princess
Why not take the opportunity to escape from the cold January weather and post-Christmas blues by taking a cruise aboard the Pacific Princess. This will be a 10-day unique experience taking in the warm delights of the eastern Caribbean from the 17-27 January 2013.
The cruise will also offer in addition to all the facilities of the Pacific Princess, full day calls in Antiga, St Lucia and St Kitts with late evening departures from these islands, enabling you to have more time to enjoy yourself sampling all their charm.
This really is a unique opportunity to sail on this ship as it normally this time of year as Jan Swartz Princess Cruises executive vice president says, “Because Princess Pacific travels the globe, we rarely have the opportunity to offer a Caribbean cruise on this popular small ship. But because we are rescheduling the ships dry dock we have a wonderful chance to offer this unique one time itinerary option before she takes her yearly world cruise”.
As Jan says this is a popular small ship with just over 800 passengers that allows it to offer that personal service and care that the larger ships carrying over 4 times that many simply cannot do. In fact it is quite common for the crew to get to know all their passengers and say hello as they go about their business. Although small, the décor in no way has been down sized, with its dark wood and plush interiors it could be likened to a stately manor house that has an intimate feel about it.
So, what is the Pacific Princess able to offer you whilst you soak up the warmth and views of the Eastern Caribbean? With regard to eating there are two speciality restaurants, The Sterling Steakhouse and Sabatinis that offer great tasting food for that special night out. The main dining hall also offers authentic cuisine and allows you time to meet and get to know your fellow passengers.
The cabins, as you would expect, are superbly equipped at all levels with the various State Rooms offering a 24 hours room service and balcony. Over three quarters of the cabins are sea facing allowing passengers the chance to view their voyage in private if they so desire.
Entertainment also has not been downsized on this beautifully packaged small ship. There are performers, talented musicians as well as singers and dancers. Also included are casinos, movies , night clubs and lounges for cocktails and other drinks. So there truly is something for everybody allowing you to escape from the January blues back home. If you were back home then you may be fighting your way in the January sales crush, so why not take advantage of the exclusive on board boutiques offering designer clothes and duty free goods.
Finally, for those who do not want to totally relax on deck there are a variety of activities, pools, spas, gyms and jogging tracks. For the less energetic there is a well-stocked library and a card room with plenty of quiet corners to retire to. There are even talks and classes on art related subjects so you can exercise those little grey cells.
As the Pacific Princess makes her way around the Caribbean, you will also be able to take advantage of the in-port tours such as the UNESCO World Heritage sites of Brimstone Hill Fortress National Park on St Kitts and the dramatic Pitons in St Lucia.
As a small ship with a large welcome and facilities you will treated as an individual and have that unique and intimate cruise experience that will stay with you forever.
