This was our second cruise on the Star Princess. Not much has improved since the 1st except for the excellent production show entertainment. "Born To Dance" is a hit. This time the staff on the ship just did not seem very happy. ... Read more

With a few cruises behind us, we were pleasantly surprised by the star princess. She is a good-sized ship, easy to navigate, with plenty of open spaces. She never felt crowded on this vancouver to los angeles wine cruise. The staff on this ... Read more

We recently sailed on the Star Princess for a coastal cruise round trip Vancouver. I really enjoy a cruise out of Vancouver round trip … only a ferry and bus ride to get there so no other transportation or hotel requirements. ... Read more

The reason we picked this cruise was because it sailed in and out of Vancouver so we didn't have to fly to get to it. We usually cruise on Holland America and they have everything we like , so this review will be biased.There is nothing ... 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

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

After an impressive cruise with Royal Princess earlier this year, we were very disappointed with this Ship particularly the Horizon Court buffet layout, quality, choices, and service. It seems you feel like a bunch of chicken running ... Read more
