Embarkation was the best yet! We were on ship by noon! Loved the "soda" card and the the milkshakes and hot choc! We have always wanted to go Hawaii and this was a great way to get there. Relaxing and pampered! Days were ... Read more

We were on the April 23, 2017 departure to Hawaii on the Grand and I have to say I had some misgivings prior to the trip due to some unflattering reviews. But we could not find much wrong with the ship: small areas of rust (it's a SHIP, on ... Read more

My husband and I chose this cruise because who wouldn't want to go to Hawaii?! And, with 5 days at sea each way, we were guaranteed lots of rest and relaxation. We got into Vancouver 1 day early, which allowed for some good exploring of ... Read more

Warning: This review is long, but worth reading if you are seriously considering a cruise on the Star. If you want to move on quickly I’ll say my overall impression of the ship (including all services and amenities) is below average, ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we had never sailed to Hawaii and I wanted to see how well I would do on long Sea Days across an Ocean. The embarkation went very quickly and there was no wait, we boarded around 1:15 pm. This ... Read more

We did not have a chance to explore San Francisco before departure since we travel from the east coast the same day as departure. Don't expect to get airport transfers from Oakland to the ship, there aren't any...so, you'll need to take a ... Read more

Chose this cruise at short notice because it was a 2-week duration, the price was reasonable and the destination was appealing. The 4-day journey to the islands was cold, windy and wet (San Francisco to Hilo), so outdoor and balcony ... Read more

Many cutbacks and they are missed. For example, the dining menu used to include steak as a daily alternative. It was changed to beef medalions. NOW we have hamburger as a daily alternative. Menu is too fancy and just for those trying to ... Read more

Easy embarkation and debarkation from San Francisco. Awesome to sail under Golden Gate Bridge and past Alcatraz island. Ship showing it's age but overall very nice. Elevators are slow as everyone tries to pack in with no elevator ... Read more

I chose this cruise for the sea days. There were 10 of them and I loved them. Unfortunately, the weather didn't cooperate so many of our Hawaii plans were cancelled. But, the cruise was amazing, despite the weather. I read a review ... Read more

We picked this 15 day cruise because it was the same price as the 7 day cruise around the Hawaiian Islands leaving out of Honolulu. We flew in to LAX a day early and stayed at the Crown Plaza next to the harbor. Great location within ... Read more

We wanted to return to Hawaii and this was the 9th Princess Cruise. I am thinking I will never cruise Princess again. The ship temperature was not for passengers but hauling raw meat. People were wearing winter coats on the ship. The audio ... Read more
