We found a really great deal on a one way cruise with Princess from Los Angeles to Vancouver over my kids Spring Break. I had gone on a cruise many years ago on another cruise line and was looking forward to being pampered with some great ... Read more

We chose this particular cruise because we had been on the same itinerary the year before but on a different ship. We were especially looking forward to returning to Loreto. The crew on the STAR PRINCESS were amazing; they did their jobs ... Read more

We had cruised twice before on the Star Princess and liked the ship so chose her for our first cruise in fifteen years. We flew from Sacramento to Los Angeles the day of the cruise. We had a bit of an adventure on the shuttle (not ... Read more

This was our 11th cruise, fifth on Princess. We are a couple in our late 60"s. We had a great cruise although some interesting events took place. There was a fist fight in the Princess theater over "saved" seats. Staff ... Read more

My third 15-day cruise from Los Angeles to the Hawaiian Islands. It was my eighth Princess cruise and I can't wait for my ninth cruise. The Star Princess is big with 15 decks, but comfortable to get around easily. My balcony cabin was ... Read more

Many cutbacks and they are missed. For example, the dining menu used to include steak as a daily alternative. It was changed to beef medalions. NOW we have hamburger as a daily alternative. Menu is too fancy and just for those trying to ... Read more

As a member of Cruise Critic I arranged with Princess to hold the Meet and Greet. They set aside the Skywalker for us, with complementary coffee, etc. Had a good group that were treated with a visit by Captain Tuvo and Cruise Director ... Read more

Star Princess 15-Day Hawaii (2/22/17-to-3/9/17) **** (four stars) Any discussion of the Star Princess has to begin with its Captain, Michele (Muh-KEE-lay) Tuvo, the most personable skipper I have ever come across on the high seas. His ... Read more

I chose this cruise for the sea days. There were 10 of them and I loved them. Unfortunately, the weather didn't cooperate so many of our Hawaii plans were cancelled. But, the cruise was amazing, despite the weather. I read a review ... Read more

We picked this 15 day cruise because it was the same price as the 7 day cruise around the Hawaiian Islands leaving out of Honolulu. We flew in to LAX a day early and stayed at the Crown Plaza next to the harbor. Great location within ... Read more

We wanted to return to Hawaii and this was the 9th Princess Cruise. I am thinking I will never cruise Princess again. The ship temperature was not for passengers but hauling raw meat. People were wearing winter coats on the ship. The audio ... Read more

2nd time on Star Princess and doubt we'll be back. We didn't choose the cruise, it was chosen for us by relatives. Embarkation was smooth up until actual boarding - Princess has a very slow system of taking your picture once you're ... Read more

Our relatives chose this cruise and we tagged along. However, it was very convenient for us, living in the LA area, that it was a round trip to and from LA. Captain Michele Tuvo was an exceptional captain - he was friendly, funny, fun ... Read more

We love cruise days but unfortunately the weather did not cooperate. It was cool and some days had very rough seas. We didn't find too much to keep us busy that we were interested in. The shops were few and very small. The sun came out ... Read more

We picked a cruise to Hawaii and it was the most disappointing cruise we have ever taken. Our cabin had a very loud banging noise under the floor of the cabin. It took 9 days to get moved to another cabin. We didn't get any sleep for 2 ... Read more

This was a bit bigger than we like but it never seemed crowded. Weather didn't cooperate on our many sea days, we were able to entertain ourselves up until the last few rainy days. The ship is older, still has wooden lockers on the ... Read more

This was our first time on Princess after six cruises on Celebrity. If the 'Star' is representative of the Princess product it will probably be our last. First I'd like to say the staff was great. Everyone went out of their way to make ... Read more
