  1. Thanks so much - I’m starting to think you might be right. We certainly want some activities we can do as a family and would be bummed if we were keeping ourselves busy with board games all the time! I will check out the Coral - but I don’t know if she is sailing Alaska this summer.
  2. This is so good to hear! Do you remember if there’s any on board programming geared to all ages?
  3. I guess it’s family and kid dependent. We recently went to Sedona and stayed at a 10 room B&B with zero amenities and my kids are calling it their favorite trip yet. That’s the main reason I’m considering the Pacific Princess. During our Sedona trip we toured and did exciting activities as a family but then just relaxed and played games while at our B&B.
  4. Ahh - ok. Got it 🙂 I really don't want a "kid ship" for Alaska. My kids will be in 3rd and 5th grade and I really want them to appreciate and learn about Alaska. I don't particularly want them to be distracted by flying on a trapeze or bumper cars! Do you think there are ANY family activities on PP? Name That Tune? Kareoke? Family Friendly Trivia?
  5. In what way is the ship not "good for kids"? Are they frowned upon on a small ship?
  6. This is all so helpful! My kids (ages 8 & 10) enjoy things like family name that tune, trivia, kareoke, magicians/comedians, and pool. (Is there a solarium pool they could access if the PP?) Don’t get me wrong- they also love the mega-ship stuff like water slides , rock walls, and ice rinks - but for Alaska I really don’t want them distracted with that stuff. The purpose of the Alaska trip is to be in - and appreciate- Alaska. Not to spend our time with the bells and whistles of a mega ship 🙂 Does the Pacific Princess have any organized family activities like trivia or name that tune? Or bc it’s so small they don’t do those things? Any info is appreciated.
  7. Thx so much for your reply! We don’t need a kids club. Our kids never enjoyed kids clubs in the past on RCCL, so we stopped trying. (They found the clubs to be too loud /crazy and they would rather just hang with us.) What is it that you particularly love about the Pacific Princess?
  8. I'm considering a July 2020 Alaska cruise and land vacation for my family (husband and I are 41 and kids ages 8 & 10) and considering the Pacific Princess. I love the idea that she's a smaller ship - but I'm nervous b/c of her age. We've been on a bunch of mega ships (RCCL Anthem and Harmony) and certainly don't want that experience for Alaska. Can anyone shed light on the upkeep of the Pacific Princess? Does the interior look old and tired? How about the cabins? I see that the ship had a refurbishment in 2019. How extensive was this refresh? Any info is appreciated!!!
