Princess Cruises has announced the sale of Pacific Princess.
The 670-passenger vessel, the third ship in the Renaissance-class series, was sold to an undisclosed buyer.
Pacific joined the Princess fleet in 2002 having originally entered service in 1999 as R3 for Renaissance Cruises.
Three other Renaissance-class ships are currently operated by Azamara – as Journey, Quest and Pursuit.
There has been speculation in recent years around Azamara – which was this week sold by Royal Caribbean Group to private equity firm Sycamore Partners – looking to expand its fleet with similar hardware.
