Princess Cruises has sold its Pacific Princess to an undisclosed buyer, parent company Carnival Corporation announced today.
Pacific Princess first joined the cruise line’s fleet in 2002, and originally entered service in 1999 as R3 for Renaissance Cruises. The boutique-style ship offered an intimate cruising environment, with a total of just 670 passengers, but incorporated many of the dining and entertainment options available on the cruise line’s larger cruise vessels.
Pacific Princess sailed more than 1.6 Million nautical miles, including 11 World Cruises.
Pacific Princess offered a traditional style of cruising
“Pacific Princess holds so many memories and cherished experiences to all who sailed upon her,” said Jan Swartz, Princess Cruises president. “Pacific Princess offered a traditional style of cruising to unique destinations. While it’s difficult to say goodbye to our ‘Love Boat,’ our World Cruise and exotic itineraries continue onboard our Medallion Class-enabled Island Princess and Coral Princess, featuring the best Wi-Fi at sea, allowing guests to keep in touch with loved ones and share vacation memories along the way.”
Princess Cruises previously sold it’s Sea Princess and Sun Princess.
Parent company Carnival Corporation has sold off several ships as it streamlines its fleet in the wake of the coronavirus crisis. Among them Carnival Cruise Line’s Carnival Fascination and Carnival Imagination.
