Star Princess: Star Princess Cruise Review by sxcrane
Overall Member Rating
Destination: South America
Embarkation: Santiago (Valparaiso)
Norovirus was in epidemic stage when the Captain announced to use the rest room only in your cabin and wash your hands better. I realize he did not want to scare the passengers, but more warnings were necessary. Some spent the entire trip quarantined in their cabin with their ship card deactivated.
The Internet cafe was dial up slow for 75 cents or less a minute. I would pay for a high speed connection. Really bad for the business person. OK for mom and pop to check one email.
Many very unhappy More cruisers. Staff was basically excellent. Food was average to good. Specialty restaurants were excellent, $20 extra per person. Rooms were terrific. and room stewards excellent. The automatic tipping charge which was $250 for the trip was optional only if you went to the service desk and opted out which we preferred to do our own gratuity.
Overall good trip. Maybe 3+ out of 5. Less
Cabin review: S
Lots of storage in the mini suite with balcony. Two flat screen TVs and a frig. Nice bed. Good bathroom with a tub and shower.
Exceeded our expectations
