We took this same cruise with Princess last year but we were on the Golden Princess. We had such a wonderful time that we thought we would do it again. There were things we hadn't had a chance to do and enjoyed those things this trip. The crew on this ship was not as friendly as the crew on the Golden Princess. Maybe we were extremely lucky last year, but they took the time to get to know us and went out of their way to make sure we were having a good time and had everything we needed. That was not the case this time. The entertainment staff were sadly lacking in their enthusiasm as well. I would say the exceptions were Danny, Fernando and Ben. Our room steward Lowell was also an exception. He was amazing and got to know our names the first day and went out of his way to make us feel comfortable. I think if we do a cruise again, it will not be with this particular ship. I am not sure if the crews rotate or not, but I just didn't think it was that fun.

Pros: We thought the Vegas type shows were fantastic.

Cons: The staff seemed less than enthusiastic and not very personal.

Recommends Star Princess? No.

Service and Staff
Ship Quality
The ship is very nice and kept very clean.
Food and Dining
Food was good but not exceptional. If you want exceptional, we would recommend you visit Tequila's.
The exceptions would be the comedian and the juggler as well as the Vegas shows.
Cabin / Stateroom
Our room steward Lowell was fantastic! Excellent job!!
Ketchikan, Alaska
Creek street and fishing. Both a great time.
