Ship Facts: Star Princess Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Star Princess Deck Plans
Princess Star

Pro: Princess Star offers movie outdoor and in Princess theater.

Prego Pizzeeria has one of the best pizza.

See thousands of the salmon at the Creek Street fish ladder at Ketchikan. First time in my life. Have never seen any salmon in other fish ladder in other City like Seattle, Portland or Vancouver before.

Con: Not one towel animal in entire cruise.

Place order of fruit basket at the cabin door for couple of nights and no one picks up the order.

They are selling bottle water through out the ship. No free coffee or water offered at International Cafe at Deck 5. The waiters at the International Cafe do not offer any water. I have traveled on other cruises and they all offer free coffee and water at their Snack Bar and some are self serve. Bring a mug to carry water from the restaurants to your cabin for your medicine.

Princess Star has many design flaws. You cannot get through some decks, including the sun deck, without climbing the staircase. There are not enough directional signs at the exterior decks. The pools at the end of the ship at Deck 14 and 15 are hardly used. Not everyone is aware of the Skywalkers Nightclub located at the end of the ship at Deck 18, I saw only 5 couples dancing in the nightclub one night at 11:30 PM prime time. These space are wasted.

Princess Star puts in alot of effort on its Spa and Salon and there is hardly any space left for the fitness center. Princess Star is selling spa treatment through out entire cruise and daily on its daily guide.

After 3-4 days into the cruise we are sick of the food at Horizon Court buffet especially the breakfast, same egg, bacon, sausage, fried rice, etc every morning. Unlike on other cruises, we end up eating traditional lunch and dinner more often at the Portofino. The Philippino fried chicken served in one evening at Portofino is very good.
