The Star Princess is a beautiful ship, but the size can be a bit much. I've done many cruises in my days but none so large as the Star. It can be a bit much for someone to travel from end to end and deck to deck, but it gives you a chance to work off some of the great meals on board.
The Scheduliing of the entertainment is a bit tough if you have the late seating for dinner instead of the open seating, you may have to choose between eating in the dining area or seeing a show. Also the quality of entertainment was not what I expected out of Princess. I've had much better on RCC, NCL and Carnival.
The last day when we had a port in Victoria BC you had the feeling the crew no longer cared about you as a customer, the more or less said their goodbyes the night before and suddenly felt as if you should be disembarking instead of visiting in Victoria.

Pros: Service, Food quaility, ease of getting on and off ship

Cons: Entertainment

Recommends Star Princess? Yes!

Food and Dining
Scheduling and quality of entertainment was below what I expected from Princess
Ship Quality
Bathrooms are difficult to find and small near public areas
Cabin / Stateroom
Small Shower in inside cabin, hope your not a big person.
Service and Staff
They treated you like royalty, that is until the last day.
