My husband and I selected this cruise because of the itinerary and the opportunity to have six relaxing days at sea. The Star Princess and her crew did not disappoint. For those of us still in the working world, there is nothing better than enjoying ocean breezes, sunrises and sunsets and myriad options to engage or disengage during sea days. And, once we rounded the Baja peninsula our adventures began. We are huge fans of visiting World Heritage Sites and this cruise offers several to choose from in Cabo San Lucas, La Paz and Loreto. The shore excursions were excellent and I heard no complaints from other passengers on the ship. The phrase I kept hearing was how much this cruise exceeded passengers' expectations. The Baja Peninsula is drop-dead gorgeous and the water temperature of 80 degrees is perfect in October for those of us who went snorkeling at every opportunity.
The crew was young and vibrant and there was more to do do than we had time for. My only suggestion would be to opt for the "any time" dining. We selected the late seating and found it conflicted with many activities we wanted to participate in on the ship. Go and enjoy. We will definitely be taking this same cruise again.
Food and Dining
Service and Staff
Cabin / Stateroom
Order room service breakfast on those mornings when you have an early shore excursion. The international cafe is our favorite for lunch--light, healthy food choices. The sun deck adjacent to the serenity spa is the perfect quiet place to read your favorite novel and be away from the crowds.
