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 Pedro. There is a noise problem and cruise shuttle issue at the hotel, so we suggest you find pre-cruise accommodations elsewhere.
Embarkation- Smooth as silk. Being in the elite group, we bypassed the general throng at 11:30 am and were on the ship within fifteen minutes of arrival at the port.
large balcony! plenty of room for two passengers. Quiet part of the ship.
Not happy with our pre-cruise hotel.
Nothing planned, so we just bummed around Nawilliwilli. Good lunch @ liaolaki's.
tendered into Lahaina. Ubered to Kannapalli. Hung out at Hula Grill area. Fun day!!
