(UPDATED) Princess Cruises sells PACIFIC PRINCESS to Sycamore Partners

CruiseIn line with Carnival Corporation’s plan to accelerate the removal of less efficient ships, Princess Cruises has sold the 30,312gt and 670-passenger capacity PACIFIC PRINCESS – the smallest vessel in the Princess Cruises fleet – to private equity company Sycamore Partners.

Completed in 1999 by Chantiers de l'Atlantique as R3 for ill-fated Renaissance Cruises, PACIFIC PRINCESS first joined premium cruise line Princess Cruises in 2002. The boutique-style cruise ship sailed more than 1.6 million nautical miles, 11 world cruises and offered distinctive itineraries to sought-after destinations all over the world.

PACIFIC PRINCESS belongs to a series of eight R Class vessels built by the French shipyard, four of which sail under the Oceania Cruises banner and three for Azamara, the luxury cruise line which Royal Caribbean Group recently sold to Sycamore Partners. PACIFIC PRINCESS will join her three sister ships at Azamara this year and following a major refit and upgrade, will start cruises in Europe from 2022.
