This Star does not shine ~ You couldn't pay us to go on this ship again!
"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..."Read More

This was to be a get away to make up for a trip that ended because of a family tradgedy. The ship was fine, but the extra amenities were lacking. We tried the special dining at the steak house and the porterhouse was chewy and the filet mignon that replaced it was not much better. The wine package was not adequately explained and could only be used in a specific dining venue. There were only a ...

We felt that this cruise was the perfect blend of relaxation and travel. Unlike a transatlantic crossing, the ports were buffered on either side by sea days. I've included a detailed review of our room in the ratings. Embarkation We flew into Burbank around 11 am and took a 45 minute Lyft ride to the ship. Embarkation took less than 20 minutes, and we appreciated that the main dining room ...

We've cruised with Princess before and four other cruise lines. We have Princess as our vacation of choice. We actually have done this cruise before on the Grand Princess. And, will be sailing on the Star Princess at least three more times before she is reassigned later this year. When living in France and Singapore we went with local cruise lines, but they didn't compare to Princess in terms ...

This cruise was for a very special occasion for 15 days to the Hawaiian Islands. On bording the ship the exterior was running with rust streaks and large dents on the outside.This did not look good as first impression. I had been upgraded to a fantastic cabin I was told. The cabin straight away smelt musty and looked tired with old furniture. The valance around the bed was dirty and my bed sheets ...

Mediocre Cruise on a Dated Ship but worth it for Hawaii!

I'll start with the embarkation process at the San Pedro port. Very quick, no lines and friendly staff! Overall very easy and straightforward. Only thing I noted was there was no health screening (I recall going through a health screening questionnaire on the last cruise I did) and given the coronavirus risk at the moment I'm surprised this didn't occur. Once on board our cabin was ready for ...

We chose this trip because we wanted to see Hawaii. It was beautiful, and so happy we got to visit Pearl Harbor. The sea time was perfect to catch up on reading, watching movies, and taking in some enrichment lectures and classes such as ukelele and Spanish--different!. The ship needs to update their tv guide, as some channels and listings are not there. This is an old ship that has some ...

We chose this particular cruise based on cost and timing. We wanted to go to Hawaii and this just worked. This was the longest cruise we have ever been on, 15 days. Embarkation and debarkation were both smooth and trouble-free. The Star Princess is older, which gives it some character but also shows its age. There were constantly public restrooms with toilets or urinals out of service and in ...

We chose this particular cruise to Hawaii to escape the January cold of Idaho and we are loyal to Princess, so on to Star princess we roll. We also did this itinerary in January, 2013 on the Golden, so this voyage was a do-over. We had previously been on Star to Mexico in 2016, so we were familiar with this ship. Pre-trip- Spent the night before embarkation at the Best Western Plus in San ...

This was a repeat cruise for my husband and me but included Sea of Cortez which we had only visited on the World Cruise. We did a B2b With the Mexico and Hawaii Cruises to just get away. We spent a lot of time in the casino and I came home $3,000 richer than when we left. I had lost my fanny pack on the first day but it was turned in to the Customer Services desk. It was intact except for ...
