Princess caters to the older generation very well overall. Food is varied and very good. The staff is always friendly and helpful. Highlight on this cruise were the two enrichment speakers. In particular Peter Varley discussions on ... Read more

1st cruise with Princess - not impressed. Food was average. Service in dining room was good and bad - one day coffee for breakfast was served promptly, another day, waited over 10 minutes. Regular dinner menu had hamberger on it, other ... Read more

This was our first cruise, selected because we wanted to see Hawaii and Pearl Harbour. We had already been to LA and seen a bit but thought we could go to the Iowa and Queen Mary, which we did... Boarding was quite laborious and ... Read more

Star Princess is a rust bucket in EXTREME need of being revamped. Rust was visible everywhere. Mold was around the tub in our stateroom bath. Furniture and carpets were very worn. Wi-Fi was horrible; not only did it not work at all in ... Read more

When reading this review please remember to preface the comments with "In my opinion...." as others will certainly have different thoughts. Why this cruise? Being from central Canada we were attracted to the fact that the ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the departure port, the number of sea days and the destination. We booked cabin C752 an aft corner cabin overlooking the wake. We have enjoyed these cabins before and make every effort to obtain one. We ... Read more

First time cruising with Princess (have only been on Holland America prior) and I was very impressed. All aspects were great - staff, selection of activities, food - and would definitely cruise with Princess again. A friend did all the ... Read more

I found the ship too small for the number of passengers (2700) that were on the cruise. It seemed you were always in a lineup and not everyone could get in the main theater as it was too small to accommodate everyone in two shows. I do ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it was easy for us. we live in Vancouver and it was a round trip cruise from there. Also because we wanted to find out what many sea days would be like. we were afraid that it would be too boring for us. ... Read more

This was a treat we booked for ourselves for our 15th Anniversary. We did this same cruise 6 years ago on Holland America. Before I get into any details I want to say that I would love to give this cruise a very good rating but it falls ... Read more

Star Princess to Hawaii Sep 24 2016: The service was good. People were genuinely welcoming. If you are lucky you will get a cruise Captained by Michele Tuvo. Prepare to be amused, charmed and enamoured of him. You'll see. I'd book a ... Read more

Vancouver is easily accessible from our hometown of Kelowna, B.C. Better than having to travel to Ft. Lauderdale as we did for our last cruise. I found the cruise generally boring, however, my wife found it better than that. I guess I'm ... Read more

We had an option for a cruise up to 15 days so took this one because we had not been to Hawaii since 1989 and wanted to go back. We had a balcony which I highly recommend as it makes all the difference and I am a person that gets sea ... Read more

This review will be long, and I won't be covering the ports of call as I think there is more pertinent information readers need to know, The 'pros' for this ship is the dining room food was quite good. The service was hit and miss, but ... Read more

We have been on 12 cruises before this, half of them on Princess, but we had never been on a cruise with so many sea days before (10) and were a little worried we'd get bored. We were never bored, but we were relaxed and enriched. We ... Read more

We wanted a cruise both to and from Vancouver, so in spite of a previously forgettable experience on the Star, we decided to give it another chance. Embarkation was about normal except for me being demoted from Platinum to being a ... Read more

My husband and I booked a Vista Suite (C751) facing the aft. We had moments of enjoyment on the ship, but I will never cruise with Princess again and would advise others to do the same. About 3 days prior to embarkation, we pre-paid for ... Read more

“Land Ho!” came the cry from the veranda of our mini suite on Dolphin deck on board the Princess Star. Normally you would think that would be your words after a 5 day ocean crossing Vancouver BC to Hilo, Hawaii. You'd be ... Read more
