    MS Pacific is a cruise ship owned and operated by the Brazil-based Viagens CVC. She was built in 1971 by Nordseewerke, Emden, West Germany as Sea Venture for Flagship Cruises. She operated cruises between the USA and Bermuda, which had been settled by the survivors of the wreck of the original Sea Venture in 1609. Between 1975 and 2002 she sailed for Princess Cruises as Pacific Princess, famous for appearing in the romantic sitcom The Love Boat. In 2008, Pacific was chartered by the newly-established Quail Cruises to operate cruises out of Valencia, Spain, but was retired from service when renovation work proved more expensive than had been anticipated and was sold to a company specializing in ship breaking in 2012. As of 16 May 2013, she remains laid up in Genoa.

Examples of Pacific in a Sentence

  1. Jeff Sessions:

    We've got cases moving in the very, very liberal Ninth Circuit, who, they've been hostile to the order, we won a case in Virginia recently that was a nicely-written order that just demolished, I thought, all the arguments that some of the other people have been making. We are confident that the President will prevail on appeal and particularly in the Supreme Court, if not the Ninth Circuit. So this is a huge matter. I really am amazed that a judge sitting on an island in the Pacific can issue an order that stops the President of the United States from what appears to be clearly his statutory and Constitutional power.

  2. Amy Searight:

    It'll be headlines in the region that no senior American leader is coming to a summit with 17 other leaders from the Indo-Pacific, and I think it really does call into question ... how serious this administration is in its Free and Open Indo-Pacific strategy.

  3. Garret Martin:

    The delays, that could probably be worked out, but China’s behavior and the economic coercion against Australia and others, I think, created a real sense of urgency and real domestic pressure. (Australia has) a lot of sea coast to defend, and the Pacific Ocean is massive, so having that long range made a big difference for them.

  4. Ethical Traveler report:

    We fully support Vanuatu's citizens in their rebuilding efforts but do not believe their infrastructure can handle an influx of tourists at this time, palau, another small Pacific island that has been a fixture on our list, was omitted this year. In order to reclaim their long-held spot they must show clear and verified progress in the fight to end human trafficking, for both domestic labor and sex purposes.

  5. James Kane:

    It’s a signal of intent that they want to be involved in that region more politically, economically, militarily, there is a sort of grand vision of the UK as a balancing power, helping to stabilise the Asia-Pacific region, and constructing rules to constrain the rise of China.
