After many cruises on many different lines, I feel that I am able to offer a pretty good opinion of our cruise with Princess. We knew that this was a "trial" - cruising a little early in the year for Hawaii (not to mention ... Read more

I will start my review with this: A cruise was not my first choice. I was convinced by my husband whose dream it was to take a trans-ocean cruise. He talked me into this 15 day cruise from Vancouver to Hawaii by getting me to think ... Read more

This was a 2nd cruise on the same line and a very similar itinerary (no stop in San Francisco this time) but on a different ship (Island P 4 years ago). Experience was very poor and one wonders if Princess's standards can drop so much in ... Read more

We really enjoyed this cruise. Quite an adventure for us. Machu Picchu should be on everyone's bucket. The Andes are beautiful. I was a little unsure about the size of this ship I like smaller ones, but I was pleasantly surprised. ... Read more

My wife and I have 300+ days with princess. Every time we go back we worry (just a bit) after reading current reviews on CC. Before writing this was glad to see all south American reviews (except one) were quite positive. Princess DID NOT ... Read more

We boarded the ship without any issues or delays which is a great way to start any cruise. On this cruise, we had the mini-suite and we found it to be in excellent order. It appeared to me that the ship had recently been refurbished as ... Read more

My wife and I joined the Star Princess for a 32 day Andes cruise which started from Buenos Aires and finished in Los Angeles. From the outside the ship looked very impresive but this did not reflect when we got to our cabin on the 11th ... Read more

We were on the February 29 cruise from Buenos Aires to Valparaiso. The itinerary enthralled us and did not disappoint. Obviously, some ports were better than others. We arrived in Santiago on the 28th and had made our own arrangements for ... Read more

We flew into Santiago and stayed one night before heading to cruise port of Valparaiso on a private tour of Santiago and Valparaiso. I highly recommend this rather than a direct transfer to the port as there are quite a few sights to see ... Read more

Let me begin by saying that we are not fans of large ships, as the crowds can be daunting. We have done 13 cruises on ships from 16 to 3000 passengers, chosen mainly by itinerary and scheduling. Most of our cruises have been on the Star ... Read more

Checking in to the cruise was quick and easy, 10 minutes from arrival at the ship until we were in our cabin. Arrangements for first evening's dinner were a bit confusing and our cabin steward didn't seem to know that it was open ... Read more

Our 14 night Cape Horn and Strait of Magellan was very memorable. We were the first cruise of the season to be able to dock at all the ports. The seas were rough a couple of nights but the ship handled it very well. Our Captain was very ... Read more

We arrived in Buenos Aires and was transported to our hotel. Very nice hotel and very accommodating. The people were always there to help. Boarding the ship was quite lengthy because it was a container port and we had to take a bus ... Read more

We had spent a week in Peru (Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu, Cusco) arriving late in Santiago, and took a (non-Princess) tour (with wine tasting) the next day arriving fairly late for check-in. The only issue was that we didn't realize we ... Read more
