Not a great experience.

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Suite

I and many passengers on the ship were disappointed by this cruise. There were no activities for the passengers. It would take about 1 hour to get off in the ports and then you had to run to get your excursion. Food quality was horrible. You even have to pay for your own ice cream. They do not list the prices of the photographs they take on the ship until you paying, very expensive. I have traveled about 10 times in other cruises in other cruise lines and this one by far was the worst. Will not travel on Princess again. The arrangements to take you the airport through Princess were horrible. We waited 3 hours before we were allowed to get off the ship and almost missed our flight. We had to take a taxi. Other than for Alaska I do not recommend this cruise line

Pros: Alaska

Cons: Food and activities on the ship

Recommends Star Princess? No.

Cabin / Stateroom
We had a suite and it was very comfortable and our cabin staff was very nice and helpful.
Food and Dining
Not a great selection. Food seemed like it had been frozen and taken out when you ordered it. Taste was not great. Buffet line trays were always empty.
Activities, if any, were poor. Nothing to do. You could knit or do ceramics, but you have to pay extra for that
Ship Quality
After being on other cruises other cruise lines. This was a very small ship. The atrium and shops were very small and nothting to write about. Very disappointing
Service and Staff
There was never any staff around to help. When you asked for help they would direct you somewhere else
