Princess: Out with old and in with the new

NEW YORK -- Princess Cruises' Pacific Princess, featured in the "Love Boat" television series, will no longer be part of its fleet, effective in the fall of 2002.

Princess has not released details about the future of the ship. The 640-passenger Pacific Princess, which began sailing as the Sea Venture in 1972, has been a part of the fleet since 1975.

Meanwhile, the line plans to launch America Online-branded Internet cafes aboard its fleet.

The facilities first will be available aboard the company's newest ship, the 2,600-passenger Golden Princess, which debuts this month.

Open 24 hours a day, the AOL cafes will offer 25 computer terminals with Internet and e-mail capabilities. They also will feature business services that include fax machines, printers and photocopiers.

Princess also is converting the business center aboard the Grand Princess to an AOL cafe.

Other ships in the Princess fleet are scheduled to add AOL cafes by the end of the year, according to the line.
