Forget about your January blues with a 10-day tour of the Caribbean onboard Pacific Princess


Pacific Princess will Sail Eastern Caribbean on Special 10-day Itinerary in January

If you want to get away from the miserable January weather and keep on celebrating even after Christmas, Princess Cruises have the perfect trip for you. For those wanting to escape the January lull, why not make a New Year’s resolution to get away? Princess Cruises have just announced a new fantastic cruise, which is perfect for those wanting a bit of quiet time after the busy holiday season. If you want a change of scenery after all those minced pies, turkey and snow, a cruise on the small ship Pacific Princess could be just what you are after. This cruise is ideal for those who want to escape the hustle and bustle, but who still want to have plenty to see and do. Setting sail during January 17-27, this 10-day trip combines stunning exterior locations with an intimate internal environment. With exclusive calls at the boutique ports of Tortola and St. Barthelemy, and stopping by Antigua, St. Lucia and St. Kitts in 2013, this cruise will make a fitting break away from the cold January weather.

“Because Pacific Princess travels the globe, we rarely have the opportunity to offer a Caribbean cruise on this popular small ship”

“But because we’re rescheduling the ship’s drydock, we now have a wonderful chance to offer this unique one-time itinerary option before she takes off on her yearly world cruise.”

— Jan Swartz, Princess Cruises executive vice president.

The cruise itinerary is packed full of fascinating places to visits. For example, in-port opportunities include tours to Virgin Gorda from Tortola where visitors will be able to view the world-famous geologic formation “The Baths” and see the spectacular volcanic plugs, the Pitons in St. Lucia. For history-lovers, there is also the opportunity to visit the UNESCO World Heritage sites of Brimstone Hill Fortress National Park on St. Kitts.

But there is no shortage of activities on board Pacific Princess. It may be a small and intimate cruise, carrying only 690 passengers, but it is packed full of exciting and interesting things to do. You’ll never be bored with what is on offer. Passengers will be able to take advantage of numerous dining experiences, including the specialty restaurants Sabatini’s and Sterling Steakhouse, but also more informal spaces, such as Panorama buffet, the Pizzeria and many more! There is a great range of entertainment on board and travelers can choose to go to the Theatre, the Casino, the Pacific Lounge and a number of relaxing bars. For those looking for something lower key, there are lectures, art exhibits and classes taught by experts all on offer. And travelers wanting to get over their Christmas excesses, the ship offers a range of physical activities, including a pool, spa, jogging track and golf practice cage.  Why not start your New Year’s resolutions in style with a cruise onboard Pacific Princess?
