Cabins and Suites

MS Pacific at Civitavecchia







Just for Interest:

MS Pacific did not sail for much longer as she suffered generator problems and the once famous Pacific Princess, the “Love Boat” was seized by the Italian Coast Guard mid 2008 for a massive repair bill of US$14 million that was due to San Giorgio di Porto Shipyards by Templeton International Inc, something that had nothing to do with Quail Cruises. However, I suggest that to head to the Pacific Princess page (see the link at the bottom of the page) and discover this fine ships whole story as well as her final day’s right to her final voyage to the Turkish breakers in 2013.

Remembering One of Two of the Finest Cruise Ships Ever Built!
