Review Summary

Every aspect of this cruise, from the food to the entertainment, was far superior to my past experiences with Carnival. I'll undoubtedly sail with Princess again in the future.

Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Among the better that I've experienced on a cruise. The specialty dining (Crown Grill) is well wether the additional $25 cover charge.


5 out of 5
Some of the entertainment was better than others. The nightly shows were quite good, as was the piano bar entertainer, Eric Stone. The comics were underwhelming since they predominately catered to the tastes of the elderly clientele.

Children's Programs

3 out of 5
They weren't many children on the ship, but the staff were present and eager to engage those who were.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Incredibly friendly and eager to please.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Cabins are slightly outdated, but perfectly clean and sizable.

Pros: Ports of Call, Anytime Dining, Specialty Dining (Crown Grill)

Cons: Elderly clientele, sea days, limited time at ports

Recommends Star Princess? Yes!
