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 ...

The good: The captain and all staff except Guest Relations staff had a great attitude. We had wonderful weather and our fellow cruisers were a good group. The beds are comfortable and the ship was very clean The bad: Worst food, bar none, I have ever had on my approx 20 cruises. Extremely limited menu, gristly meat and over-rich sauces. The Guest Relations staff gave incorrect ...

We chose this cruise because it originated in Chile and arrived in Los Angeles. The 16 day itinerary allowed us to arrive early in Santiago and enjoy Chile and the hospitality of the city and it's people. Princess transportation to the cruise port at San Antonio was very good although the cruise port facility was modest at best with lack of direction for arriving guests but we embarked ...

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 ...

Overview - unusual itinerary on board an older but well maintained ship. Transfer to Ship We boarded the Star Princess in San Antonio, Chile after making our own arrangements for the flight from the US to Santiago. Transfers (Princess arrangements) were efficient and after dropping our cases at the airport we did not see them again until they arrived in our cabin around 16:00. There was a ...

We actually chose this cruise for the sea days. The ports were pleasant extras for us. We had a fabulous time. Cabin steward was fantastic along with every staff member we interacted with each day. We did (3) excursions and loved them all. Wild life adventure in San Martin was amazing! We really got our money's worth out of this one. Dolphins, sea lions, penguins, birds oh my! We zip lined ...

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 ...

We picked this because we had never been to S A and we were looking for something that ended up in LA, as we had a wedding to attend on 3/30/19 We loved the countries we visited and were never concerned about safety in the ports. We did all excursions through Princess, and they were well done, with excellent hosts. There was enough variety so that there was something for everyone. We did ...

We chose this cruise for the itinerary. That part was very good. Ship was obviously very pretty at one point but looking a little shop worn now and the food dept need a total overhaul. Staff (outside of the front desk and a few waitstaff) were very friendly and helpful with smiles and greetings abounding. Captain was out and about every day and made it clear he was happy you chose his ...

We enjoyed the 49-day cruise in 2015 and decided to do this 30-day cruise. It is almost the same itinerary, beginning at Buenos Aires, but without Brazil. Good cruise, especially having Michele Tuvo as the Captain. He is the best we have ever had! He was very good about telling the passengers when there were whales, dolphins, turtles, etc around the ship. The Captain was out-and-about the ...
