Star Princess is one of Princess Cruises' Grand-class cruise ships. Built in 2002 and refurbished in 2011, the 951-ft ship has a relaxed, laid-back ambiance and is a comfortable choice for travelers wanting to enjoy a traditional cruise ship experience.
Star Princess voyages focus on the Pacific Coast of the USA and Canada, but also venture to South America as well. There are a variety of cruise itineraries on offer, some hugging the coastline from Vancouver to Los Angeles, and others sailing from Vancouver to Hawaii for a tour of the islands. Here, shore excursions range from a traditional luau to whale watching and diving with sharks. Guests with an interest in history can also visit the Pearl Harbor museums and memorials.
The ship carries 2,596 passengers and a crew of 1,100. Its 205 suits, 212 outside cabins, and 366 inside cabins are all equipped with flat-screen TV, refrigerator, desk, hairdryer, and safe. Premium Club Class suites have a spacious balcony, bathtub with massage shower, floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors, and a variety of complimentary perks. Family suites are perfect for larger groups.
Star Princess generally attracts a more mature crowd. Onboard entertainment includes original Broadway-style performances in the Princess Theater, live music in the Vista Show Lounge, dancing in the Explorers Lounge, and a Las Vagas-style casino, but there is also plenty to keep children and teenagers happy. A number of fabulous dining options ensure all tastes are catered for. Other onboard facilities include four pools, a modern spa, and gym complex
