This was a cruise round trip from San Pedro to the Hawaiian Islands. I suggest you use John Wayne airport and avoid LAX. We arrived the day before and spent the afternoon and evening at the Double Tree. They have a free shuttle to ... Read more

We upgraded to a balcony since it was such a long cruise. We were in cabin C202. The room was very clean and the balcony was a little bigger than most. Our room steward was extremely attentive and friendly. The ship itself was in good ... Read more

We wanted to cruise to and around Hawaii, but we didn't want to spend extra time in the air getting there. The embarkation was good, the disembarkation was a nightmare, so I averaged them and still came up with a "terrible" ... Read more

Was not happy with the service, charged for coffee and tea in one area of the ship and it was free in other areas. Shows were being shown at the same time. Didn't have much to do on sea days. Cruise Director was not engaging. ... Read more

We took this cruise to Hawaii to have a vacation. I booked it over a year ago. We live in So Ca so it is close to the port. Embarkation was extremely easy. We are Platinum Members so we don't really have to stand in line. The ship is ... 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

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
