There's an unmistakable, much publicized cruise industry trend to larger
and larger ships. But in its wake, there's a smaller, but growing need to
fill specialty "niche markets" - cruise regions that can't efficiently
be served by the mega-liners. Enter the Tahitian Princess - big enough to
deliver on Princess Cruises' promise of onboard dining and entertainment
flexibility, but small enough to offer truly personal service to unusual,
less-traveled ports around the world.
