Ship Facts: Star Princess Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Star Princess Deck Plans
Princess to Hawaii 2013
March 23 cruise on the Star Princess. With this cruise, you get what you pay for which isn't a bad thing, just not very good. If price is your only consideration, this is a good deal. Fortunately, we traveled with friends and kept ourselves busy but the entertainment, with exceptions, was pathetic. As one of the other reviews noted, the shows were reduced to 30 minutes which, for some was about 29 minutes too long. I was told this is a Princess wide change. If so, here's how you deal with it if you bother to go at all. Sit near an exit and as soon as you hear the cruise directors voice, get up an run to the next venue if you want to get a seat in the same zip code(or at all)as the stage. The entertainment as a whole was the weakest of any cruise we've taken and will be a factor in choosing our next cruise.

Some of the passengers left the ship a day early in Ensenada to switch to a Celebrity cruise to Alaska when the next destination for the Star Princess was.....ALASKA. More expensive, I'm sure, but a significantly different experience.

Totally unrelated to Princess, Hawaii unlike most third world ports has a lot to offer and you only get a whiff on a cruise.

Again, if Princess is trying to position itself as the McDonalds of cruising, they're headed in the right direction. This cruise was dirt cheap and I feel I got value for money spent but little to brag about.
