Star Princess

15 Night Hawaiian Islands (Los Angeles Roundtrip)

Sail date: December 04, 2019

Ship: Star Princess

Traveled as: Couple

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Review summary

We have decided to never take another cruise without doing more “ homework” . The average age of the ship passengers was too old...not enough activities for active people. Not enough time spent on each island. The only plus we can think of is one of the bar stewards...Josan Abraham. He made us feel welcome and comfortable. The costs on board ship were”pricy”. After paying for a cruise, paying for water and other drinks exorbitant!

Lotus Spa

No attendee in the room that guests had to pay the high dollar for. Not enough spaces to hang robes. The showers did not operate all the time...mold in the corners of the shower. The steam rooms were not cleaned regularly. Infrlt overcharged for this room.

Jogging Track

3 out of 5

Good clean and assessable.

Internet Cafe

1 out of 5

Not enough seating. People should be discouraged on playing cards there and stirring for hours, not giving others a place to enjoy a “pricey” cup of coffee.
