When reading this review please remember to preface the comments with "In my opinion...." as others will certainly have different thoughts. Why this cruise? Being from central Canada we were attracted to the fact that the ... Read more

I found the ship too small for the number of passengers (2700) that were on the cruise. It seemed you were always in a lineup and not everyone could get in the main theater as it was too small to accommodate everyone in two shows. I do ... Read more

Vancouver is easily accessible from our hometown of Kelowna, B.C. Better than having to travel to Ft. Lauderdale as we did for our last cruise. I found the cruise generally boring, however, my wife found it better than that. I guess I'm ... Read more

The Star Princess seems to be geared to shorter cruises - around 7 days. We were upgraded from deck 5 to deck 11, which was a lovely surprise. The Horizon Buffet section is very limited compared to the Dawn Princess which we did a 26 ... Read more
