Ship Facts: Star Princess Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Star Princess Deck Plans
Very Nice Cruise Ship, and Enjoyable Hawaiian Cruise

In many ways, a most enjoyable cruise ship and cruise. Excellent, personable Captain, Todd McBain, and very personable staff around the ship. Great lecturers for the "enrichment" lectures and the best cruise director and assistant cruise director(s) of any Princess cruise I've ever taken. Shore excursions were very good and so was the on-board entertainment.

The food on the ship was very good to excellent, depending on the meal and the day. The wine list had a good selection at very reasonable prices.

My only complaint is with "anytime dining". This cruise ship uses the two "anytime" dining rooms to accommodate "early" diners, and even reserves tables for groups in the anytime dining room FOR THE ENTIRE CRUISE. The only time available to dine in the dining rooms is either 5:30 PM or after 7:45 PM.

The Horizon Court, the main cafeteria-style buffet also has issues. They offered several "specialty buffets" for lunch but opened only half of the Horizon Court. This meant that one had to stand in a long line (cue) that extended almost to the door of the Horizon Court to enjoy lunch.
