We boarded the Star Princess after the worst embarkation we have ever experienced. We arrived at the time recommended and stood in line for three hours. This seemed to be more the fault of the port organization, because three ships were ... Read more

Our Star Princess cruise started off with 2 nights in Buenos Aires on our own. We had no real problems there but it was HOT 95 degrees F. Boarding the Star was a big problem for a lot of people. We were told by Princess not to even go to ... Read more

We were on the Star Princess five years ago from Florida to Buenos Aires. This for us was the other half of that trip that we've always wanted to do. Don't understand the people who say they found the Star a little run down. There was ... Read more

We were very excited to be going to the Antarctica and had some 18 months or so to plan our trip from when we first booked it. We decided to take advantage of several "must see" areas of South America and left home on 9th December 2010 for ... Read more

Pre-Cruise Tour We had booked our own flights and had not received anything from Princess with regard to the pre-cruise tour - no transfer tickets, no hotel vouchers, nothing. However, we needn't have worried. We were met at the airport ... Read more

If we had to use just one word to describe this cruise, the word would be AWESOME! It is difficult to give a review because of the unique nature of the cruise itself. Visiting the Falkland Islands, observing all of the wildlife throughout ... Read more

We were around the Horn 11 years ago with HAL and had pretty good weather at the Cape. Not as good as we had the other day though. We were really fortunate on this trip, as the Star Princess had ran into some pretty foul stuff coming ... Read more

We flew from JFK to BA on Delta - a nice non-stop, something very few people on this cruise were able to do. We used the Princess hotel program and I am extremely pleased. We were met at the airport and promptly brought to the ... Read more

I had not had Antarctica on my priority list of places to see - probably because I had seen videos of the Drake Passage with small ships lurching back and forth. I still don't know why I decided to go on the Star Princess, but it was the ... Read more

First of all, I should note that at about $850 (base price) per person for a 12-night cruise, even with an inside cabin, the price is low enough that one should be ready for all of the extra charges, though paying extra for soft drinks, ... Read more
