An "OK" Cruise on Star Princess

Sail Date: April 01, 2010

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Balcony

The ship was clean and comfortable. The only complaints were related to food quality/selection and entertainment options. We found the ship easy to get around and there were always personnel available to assist you.

Pros: The itinerary and cabin steward

Cons: Missed some ports/excursions due to weather. Also, food and entertainment were not so great.

Recommends Star Princess? No.

Food and Dining
Princess offers anytime dining but to make a specific reservation time was not an option. There were 2 times available 5:45 and 8:30. Other cruise lines allow you to have anytime dining but make a reservation for a specific time. Also, the food quality and selection was not as good as other cruise lines I have been on. The buffet had very limited options and they didn't change much every day. We had a poor waiter one evening and that put a damper on the meal.
Cabin / Stateroom
The bathroom was smaller than other cruise lines I have been on but the balcony was larger. Overall it was a nice stateroom. One note - the hairdryers leave a little to be desired - bring your own! :-)
We felt that the onboard activities were lacking. Not much variety or interest. The production shows were "ok" but not to the quality I have seen on other cruise lines. Not sure I will sail with Princess again.
Ship Quality
Clean and easy to get around.
Service and Staff
Except for the one problem we had with the waiter, the staff was always attentive and helpful.
