Princess Cruise Ships by Size [2020] with Comparison Chart

Princess Cruise Ships by Size [2021] with Comparison Chart

Jeremy CamosseMay 4 2021Travel
Below is a full list of Princess Cruise Ships by Size. From their smallest vessel in the fleet, the Pacific Princess, to the largest cruise ship currently active, the Sky Princess.
Princess has significantly less variability in size when compared to other major cruise lines. Carnival and Royal Caribbean offer ships up and down the spectrum. The majority of Princess ships are in a tighter grouping. The lone outlier is Princess' smallest ship. When compared to the Sky Princess, it's almost 1/5th of the size!
Let's compare the Pacific Princess to the cruise line's largest ship, the Sky Princess. The former tips the scales at a measly 30k gross tons. Whereas the latter weighs in at a whopping 145k GT. The Pacific offers just 338 cabins while the Sky boasts almost 1,800 staterooms!
Princess Largest Ship and Smallest Ship Side by Side
Here at Gangwaze, we don't discriminate when it comes to our Princess cruise ship size. Big and small, we'll cruise them all. Our choice in size depends on the occasion. For big family reunions, we need the biggest vessel (with the most hiding places). For romantic getaways we often prefer the more intimate ships.
First we'll need to provide a little detail regarding our sizing comparison chart included below. We're comparing Princess cruise ships by size using the metric, "Gross Tonnage." This always causes some funny looks from our community. Gross tonnage is not exactly equal to "weight." The definition is a bit hairy. And by "hairy, we mean "boring." Here it is anyway.
Gross TonnageA nonlinear measure of a ship's overall internal volume. Gross tonnage is calculated based on the moulded volume of all enclosed spaces of the ship and is used to determine things such as a ship's manning regulations, safety rules, registration fees, and port dues, whereas the older gross register tonnage is a measure of the volume of only certain enclosed spaces.
Psst... you still there? You might be wondering why we use this measurement to determine Princess ship sizes. As noted above, it's used for safety rules and whatnot. As such, gross tonnage is the standard across this cruise line and all others. Every passenger cruise ship will have this measurement. This makes it easy to compare ship size across ship, class, cruise lines and more.
In addition to tonnage, you'll find a number of other stats in our ship list. These include ship length, beam, draft, passenger count, cabins, and a few others for your viewing pleasure.
Ok, we're done with today's virtual session on maritime lingo. Here's the good stuff.

Click above to add our Princess Cruise Ships by Size Infograph to pinterest. Hopefully you have an active "next cruise" board in the works.
When choosing your perfect cruise, "size" should absolutely be considered. You'll want to ask yourself the following. Do you mind walking long distances? Do you prefer variety in dining venues or consistency? Is "sea-sickness" a potential issue? Are you hoping to visit smaller ports only accessible via smaller ships? Your answers to these questions should guide your decision on sizing preference.
Of course there are plenty of other factors to consider wen choosing your perfect vacation. Here are a few variables that will come into play: Price; Availability; Itinerary Length; Ship Age; Departure Port; Destination. Those are the biggies, but not at all an exhaustive list.
However, we always include "ship size" towards the top of the list. There's no doubt it will impact your cruise in major ways. You'll have a much different experience on the Pacific Princess vs one of the new, behemoths. Again, we're not here to judge. We're here to provide you with all of the information you need to make your perfect decision.
Here's a menu of all Princess Ships by Size. Click on any for quick access to ship stats for that vessel.
Without further ado, here's our full list of Princess ships ranked from biggest to smallest!
