This was our first cruise with Princess. I booked a cruise tour because of their experience in Alaska. I arranged for the trip as a north bound cruise from Vancouver followed by the land tour. I would not suggest this as the optimum ... Read more

Chose this as part of the Princess package with Alaska cruise for Inside Passage and land tour to Denali and Fairbanks. I've only cruised once before, but my friend has been on more than two dozen cruises - mostly with Holland America. ... Read more

This was actually a cruise and cruise tour and it was our 3rd cruise and cruise tour. The other 2 tours were exceptional and 5 starts. The only reason for 3 stars is you just cannot beat the scenery of Alaska and its beauty in May and ... Read more

This was our second Princess cruise and it met our expectations. The ship was great and our minisuite suited us perfectly. Would point out to be careful if you desire privacy as the balconies are often open rather than covered but this ... Read more

Cruise was part of an Evergreen Canada and Alaska tour. First time on Princess line and was very impressed. Embarkation in Vancouver was a bit long and drawn out with US immigration but no problems,just a long wait. We had a balcony ... Read more

So...my husband hadn't taken a vacation in six years and had never been on a cruise, so it was important that this cruise was exceptional. We flew into Seattle, spent a day there exploring (Pike's Place and EMP museum), had a seafood feast ... Read more

We really wanted to do the Alaska Inside Passage Cruise. We booked Princess as they seem to fit our needs the best. We booked a mini-suite, as we preferred a certain side. If you are considering an Alaska cruise, a balcony is a must, as ... Read more

This review will be long, and I won't be covering the ports of call as I think there is more pertinent information readers need to know, The 'pros' for this ship is the dining room food was quite good. The service was hit and miss, but ... Read more

We have been on 12 cruises before this, half of them on Princess, but we had never been on a cruise with so many sea days before (10) and were a little worried we'd get bored. We were never bored, but we were relaxed and enriched. We ... Read more

The head waiter and our dinner staff was fantastic, making sure that my dietary needs were meet. The entertainment was also fantastic. Other than that, the cruise was not the best. According to what I have read on Cruise ... Read more

We wanted a cruise both to and from Vancouver, so in spite of a previously forgettable experience on the Star, we decided to give it another chance. Embarkation was about normal except for me being demoted from Platinum to being a ... Read more

My husband and I booked a Vista Suite (C751) facing the aft. We had moments of enjoyment on the ship, but I will never cruise with Princess again and would advise others to do the same. About 3 days prior to embarkation, we pre-paid for ... Read more

“Land Ho!” came the cry from the veranda of our mini suite on Dolphin deck on board the Princess Star. Normally you would think that would be your words after a 5 day ocean crossing Vancouver BC to Hilo, Hawaii. You'd be ... Read more

Our 6th cruise-- 1st time w/ Princess. I always read these reviews and wonder (and chuckle) about how anyone could somehow complain about ANYTHING while cruising. Now I know. OK- here we go The Star, while we liked the layout ... Read more

Chose this cruise because the timing was perfect and it involved no flights. I was impressed with the way the crew responded to a Noro outbreak, and the control achieved. I was not impressed with all of the line ups, for everything. ... Read more

A couple of things to check if you sail the Star Princess: The hot tubs need replacing. Half the time the water was tepid. The controls on many of them did not operate properly--you'd press to get the jets going and they'd turn off a ... Read more

First of all I would like to start off by saying that we have cruised with Princess many times and hold platinum status. We have cruised other lines but have always found Princess to be above the others is service, friendliness of staff. ... Read more

The Star Princess is a wonderful ship. We love Skywalkers and the views from the 18th deck! We enjoyed a traditional dining time, the Crown Grill (fabulous steaks) and Sabatini's, too. The food quality, presentation and service ... Read more

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
