Review for Star Princess to South America

I can't understand why a big cruise line like Princess simply doesn't understand what is vegetarian and what is not, despite being advised repeatedly. Overall, not blown away by the cuisine. I'm afraid too that reception staff were not particularly knowledgeable about the port arrangements on one particular day, in fact giving me completely inaccurate information and causing a degree of stress ...

South America Santiago, Chile March 14, 2019 to Los Angeles, March 30, 2019) appealed to my wife and I. We enjoyed Chile (Santiago and Coquimbo), Peru (San Martin and Lima) and Costa Rica (Puntarenas), less so Nicaragua (San Juan del Sur), that was rushed and felt a little unsafe, and Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, that was a free day to unwind. We chose eZAir for our flight (13 hours) from LA four days ...

We did the 30 day cruise in December and spent the winter in Argentina and Chile. The logical choice was to return to California on the same ship from Santiago. We are fairly new to cruising but we love the Star Princess. The staff seems to be genuinely friendly and wants you to feel like part of the family. A couple of the ports were a little disappointing but I don’t think it was the fault of ...

Wanted to passage the Panama Canal again - to see the new larger locks that were being built the last time we passed this way - Holland America was recommended to us - we were disappointed at the poor meals - not much choice and constantly had rice (which we are not keen on) - the expensive poor trips - some of which did not actually visit all the places listed. As the cruise went on - things ...

I have now taken 4 voyages on Crystal Symphony, and 11 total on Crystal (including one river cruise) and on this cruise had the best combination of sea days and (to me) new interesting ports to visit. I felt the service was better than ever. The staff were happy and did seem more relaxed and content, which helps me feel more relaxed during my vacation. Ambassador hosts were charming and good ...

We have been sailing Crystal since 2001, on the Harmony, Symphony, and Serenity. Usually we do back-to-back cruises (our last was 35 days from Valparaiso to Auckland on the Symphony in a PH cabin). It will be our last on any Crystal ship. Now that Crystal has chopped up its cruises into mini 5-day segments, and "relaxed" its dress code, it has become a down-scale cruise line. We have always ...

First Time Cruiser

Age 60s

After traveling to Europe for many years,we decided to try something new and different. My husband suggested trip to South America and that’s where we went.We decided that going on a cruise would be much more enjoyable that flying from place to place. Coming back home after more then a month of travel(we did pre and post travel on our own), we declared this trip a big success. Embarkation ...

Good itinerary. Food was weakest area of cruise

The star princess is bit dated. I heard they are taking it of service next year. I wouldn’t recommend any ship in same class as star princess.Worst area was food, and particularly horizon court. Not much choice, and food some times over cooked and sometimes undercooked. For example, avocado tomato sandwich was like a brick. Had to throw it away. Food was very bland. Ice cream and pizza were ...

We chose the Cape Horn & Straits of Magellan Cruise because of the itinerary and past experiences with Princess. But the Star Princess was a real disappointment. The ship had so much wasted space. I never saw anyone in the library as it didn’t have any books. The art gallery was enormous but again never saw anyone in there. The international cafe was great as was the food but we could never get ...

We took this cruise because of the itinerary to Hawaii. Embarkation/ Disembarkation: Getting on was very easy and orderly due to the schedule given before hand. Did the self-disembarkation. Very good and no crowds. For those not sure about disembarkation: If taking the scheduled disembarkation, luggage must be out in the hallway at suppertime the night prior. Everyone must be out of their ...
