This fantastic cruise liner the ‘Pacific Princess’ was spotted cruising off the Donegal coast yesterday morning.
The fabulous images was sent into us by Enda Craig and was taken at Greencastle Harbour.
The ship is staggering in size, and locals were in awe at the sheer enormity of the vessel as she steamed past Greencastle Hartbour.
The Pacific Princess is owned by Princess Cruises which is based is Australia.
The vessel first entered operation in 1999, with Renaissance Cruises. The ship was not owned by the company, possession instead residing with a group of French investors, who leased the ship to the company.
In late 2001, the entire Renaissance fleet was seized by creditors.
In late 2002, Princess Cruises chartered the R Three, along with sister ship R Four (now Ocean Princess). Both vessels entered operation by the end of 2002.
The charter terminated at the end of 2004, at which time both vessels were purchased by Princess Cruises. Gabi Hollows renamed the ship Pacific Princess in Sydney on 8 December 2002.Tags:
