Star Princess is an elegant midsize ship. It's perfect for older couples or groups of friends who enjoy lingering over drinks and long dinners, as well as those who want to find local influences in dishes, ...

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 loved the cruise. After 5 nights in Santiago, we took turbus for $8 each to Valporaiso for 3 nights before our embarkation. ( hotels were Galerias and Cirilo Armstrong respectively. Wonderful stays) Embarkation was easy, but ... Read more

We arrived a couple days before the cruise in Valparaiso, Chile, via Tur Bus from Santiago. Getting to the bus terminal from the airport was fairly easy and we arrived in Valpo with no problems. Valparaiso is a beautiful City, built on ... 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

Star Princess is an older ship, but she is still one of the great Princess ships! My husband and I have traveled on many Princess cruises, and we have found that the newer ones lack the characteristics of the older ones. The service ... Read more

We recently took a cruise on Voyage 9602A (Booking reference DM6J6V) on board Star Princess from Buenos Aires to Santiago (Valparaiso). Our stateroom was B401. Let me say from the outset that this cruise was an absolute disgrace and ... Read more

My husband and I (early 70's) took the Star Princess cruise around Cape Horn leaving Rio de Janeiro on January 4. Yes, there were many frustrations starting with the embarkation fiasco in the cruise terminal in Rio to being stranded in ... Read more

Rounding Cape Horn is a navigational feat. More than a cruise, it's an adventure which means "stuff" happens. Our "stuff" began upon boarding the ship. Princess sent passengers advance notice to expect delays at the Rio ... Read more

My husband and I flew all the way from Istanbul Turkey to take this cruise. There was another couple with us. The first dissapointment started at Rio port, where we had to get in line and wait for 5 hours pulling our luggages moving very ... Read more

We had a two week South American cruise on the Star Princess. Inclement weather made this cruise difficult. 3 ports were aborted due to rough seas. No one can control the weather, but it is a very long way to travel from the UK to not ... Read more

We just returned from a 31-day South American cruise on the Star Princess. We enjoyed most everything about the cruise. The lecturers were very good. The entertainment, although not first class compared with other ships and shorter ... Read more

Just back from 31 days South America adventure on Star Princess. It was most enjoyable and the staff were really friendly. Some things of note.... the ship is going in for a refit and it needs it. Staterooms are looking tired and much ... Read more

The Star Princess is a tired, worn ship that is in desperate need of an upgrade. We found the carpets were stained and torn, the lounge chairs old PVC chairs, the metal rusting... worn is the best way to describe the ship. Our biggest ... Read more

I took the Star Princess on the 17 day cruise to South America. Embarking from Los Angeles, California and disembarking in Valparaiso, Chile. The ship stopped in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua, Puntarenas, Costa Rica, ... Read more

Reading the reviews by others, and it is hard to believe we were on the same ship. I tend to be easily pleased and my husband and I had one of the best cruises ever. Yes, the ship is in need of refurbishment but the occasional problems ... Read more

We have travelled more than 30 cruises and this has been the worst by far. The sanitization on the ship was a total disgrace. Due to the lack of this, the ship had many passengers with Norovirus and were confined to their cabins. We spoke ... Read more

Wish I could choose no stars. Half the ship sick as no sanitisation policy, sloppy management (Italian and S. American majority) art auctions...painting and easels all over our muster station, no checking of tender and shuttle bus tickets ... Read more

FOOD: This is an odd 'complaint' to have, but -- why didn't I gain weight? In fact, once I was back home after this 17 night cruise, I found that I'd lost a bit of weight. Okay, I look better thinner and am hoping to lose a few more ... Read more

This cruise, with only one port, Cabo San Lucas, 24 hours, 1pm to 1pm, was truly designed for relaxation and fun on the ship. And that is exactly what we had. Total relaxation. As one member of our group said, "Darn, turning over ... Read more

We decided to spend our Thanksgiving at Sea this year. We got to the port and walked on in about 15 minutes from our arrival. The only confusing part was the security at the package screen told everyone to put their passports away, and ... Read more

This was our second cruise ever. We took this cruise because we've wanted to go to Catalina Island for a long time and to check out Princess. Would we like Princess? Could we tolerate an inside cabin? Yes and yes! Check in and boarding ... Read more

This is our third Coastal out of Los Angeles and the shortest of the three with a four day itinerary. We liked the itinerary. I would say 80 percent of passengers are from California and 50 being the average age. We had sailed on the Star ... Read more

Embarkation: My neighbors rave about Princess and talked me into going with them on this short get-away to Catalina and Ensenada. Since it was my first time sailing with Princess, I didn't entirely know what to expect. The cruise ... Read more
