Review Summary

That was our very 1st Ship cruise in our life. Everything was new and exited. We were happy with our decision and choice to celebrate our relationship on Star Princess from Nov. 10 to 20th in 2016. We both wanted to recommend everybody to go on cruise. We loved our cabin with ocean view window, rest, food and drink.

On the 7th day of our cruise, in Puerto Valarta, Mexico  we went to excursion on Catamaran with 27 other people from Star Princess and during snorkeling in blue warm waters of open ocean near inhabitant island of Marietas Islands, my wife Veronika was attacked by a Blue Jellyfish. We did not now what is waiting for us over there. The excursion conducting group of people did not warn us about possible presence of poisonous Jellyfishes, and we could not read it in the Excursion description on board of Star Princess. We would think twice rather to go there or to stay on board. But we entrusted our lives to the professionals, and consequences were on us. I was very sorry for my wife Veronika and apologized  before her 1000 times, because it was my idea to go on that excursion to a "paradise". I was so scared, frustrated, shucked, helpless and sorry for my wife's health condition in ongoing 36 hour of torments, pain  and suffering as a result of Jellyfish bites. Why organizers of that excursion never even mentioned about such danger in the water? Why creator of  Excursion Description of Star Princes did not say even a word about it? We would never experienced that tragedy. Everything good on cruise was wiped out by this bad!!!  We were very regret for placing ourselves in that danger and loosing our health, piece, time and money. We want to say: "Please protect your quests, or at least be honest in a such "exaggerated" descriptions. Thank you for reading our story. We hope that will help many people.
