Princess Cruises has sold the Pacific Princess to an undisclosed buyer, the latest ship that parent company Carnival Corp. has shed as part of its plan to remove less efficient vessels from its nine-brand fleet.

The Pacific Princess joined the cruise line in 2002, after originally entering service in 1999 as the R Three for Renaissance Cruises. The 670-passenger ships is sister to the R-class vessels currently operating in both Azamara and Oceania's fleets. Princess said the ship sailed more than 1.6 million nautical miles.

Carnival said earlier this month that it had added another ship to its list of those departing its fleet, bringing the total to 19. Carnival has already sold four Carnival Cruise Line Fantasy-class ships, four Holland America Line vessels and two Costa Cruises ships, among others.

The 19 ships represent approximately 13% of pre-pause capacity, Carnival said, and only 3% of operating income in 2019.
