All aspects of the cruise were "as expected" on the Star Princess. We've sailed before to Hawaii, on the Golden in 2009. Same cruise, one day less then (I wonder why that cruise, with the same port calls was only 14 days and this time it was 15}? Both cruises were very pleasant.
We've also sailed on the Sapphire. All three ships are physically the same, for all practical purposes. All very nice.
This time we selected a mini-suite, because of the length of the cruise. The sofa and extra room was appreciated.
Dining room menu was very nice also, just not anything special (to me). We especially enjoyed the afternoon tea each day we were at sea. Often we ate breakfast in the Horizon Court. That's because the door slammed shut in the dining room at 9 AM! Once right in our faces!
We will cruise with Princess again and can recommend the cruise to Hawaii.
