We live in greater Los Angeles so no touring there, just drove to a local hotel and parked our car. By the way, I do not recommend the Crowne Plaza San Pedro even though they have a stay and sail program with free parking with one night ... Read more

This was our second cruise on the Star Princess. Not much has improved since the 1st except for the excellent production show entertainment. "Born To Dance" is a hit. This time the staff on the ship just did not seem very happy. ... Read more

With a few cruises behind us, we were pleasantly surprised by the star princess. She is a good-sized ship, easy to navigate, with plenty of open spaces. She never felt crowded on this vancouver to los angeles wine cruise. The staff on this ... Read more

The reason we picked this cruise was because it sailed in and out of Vancouver so we didn't have to fly to get to it. We usually cruise on Holland America and they have everything we like , so this review will be biased.There is nothing ... Read more

Star Princess is a rust bucket in EXTREME need of being revamped. Rust was visible everywhere. Mold was around the tub in our stateroom bath. Furniture and carpets were very worn. Wi-Fi was horrible; not only did it not work at all in ... Read more
