Star Princess Overview

Launched in February 2002, the Star Princess cruise ship was built in Italy by Fincantieri and is the third of three in her fleet. Her sister ships are the Grand Princess and the Golden Princess. These beautiful vessels were designed to cater for cruisers of all ages and interests, so you can expect to find a wide range of activities and generations on board. The Star Princess is particular popular among families during the peak summer season.

The Star Princess specs

Weighing in at 108,977 tonnes, measuring 951 feet in length and spanning 17 decks, the Star Princess is no small vessel. This grand ship accommodates 2,600 passengers and 1,100 crew members. Her maximum cruising speed is 22.5 knots.

Inside the Star Princess

Prepare to be wowed when you step on board the Star Princess. As her name suggests, this ship really shines. From the beautiful artwork adorning many of the public rooms, to the Asian-inspired Lotus Spa, each area has been carefully designed to be eye-catching and memorable.

Particular areas of note include the Italian-style piazza - the social heart of the ship - and the Neptune's Reef and Pool, which is delightfully decorated with colourful tile mosaics. The overall atmosphere is vibrant and lively - there's something special wherever you look.

Things to do on board the Star Princess

Whether you love shopping, spending time at the spa, keeping fit, learning new skills or simply relaxing by the pool, there's something for you on board the Star Princess. With four pool areas to choose from, as well as an exclusive adults-only retreat (The Sanctuary) and several public rooms, including a library, internet cafe and art gallery, there's no shortage of places to spend sea days.

Come night time and the ship truly comes alive; there are live performances at several venues, including hallmark production shows at the main theatre. Rest assured, you'll be well entertained from sunrise until sunset.

Star Princess restaurants and bars

As on her sister vessels, the Grand Princess and the Golden Princess, the wide variety of dining options on board the Star Princess is quite simply outstanding. With three main dining rooms, a buffet and several specialty restaurants, there's no shortage of places to enjoy a beautiful dinner. Of the three main dining rooms, two have flexible seating (Capri and Portofino), while the Amalfi has two fixed seating times - one early, one late.

A few of the bars also serve food; the Vines Wine Bar has an excellent tapas menu, while the nautical-themed Wheelhouse Bar serves complimentary lunch every day. As the night progresses, all of the bars are open for pre- and post-dinner drinks, with some staying open late into the evening. The ship is well-stocked with premium beers, wines and spirits, as well as a range of high quality non-alcoholic beverages.

Star Princess itineraries and shore excursions

The Star Princess spends the majority of her time cruising the American continent, from Canada to Chile and everywhere in between. The shore excursions available will of course depend on your chosen cruise route, but you can expect a wide variety of tours to choose from. At each port you should find tours to suit all fitness levels and interests. Some examples include whale watching in Alaska, a 'Hollywood Scavenger Hunt' in Los Angeles and a tour of world famous football stadiums in Buenos Aires.

Cabins on board the Star Princess

The Star Princess has a total of 1,301 cabins, many of which have an ocean view. Cabins start at 160 square feet (inside) and go up to 274 square feet (including balconies). All of the standard staterooms come equipped with basic amenities and televisions.

Those looking for more spacious accommodation will do well in one of the mini-suites. Measuring 323 square feet (including balconies), there are 180 of these suites on board. The Star Princess also has 23 suites of a much larger size, measuring from 468 to 1,314 square feet, depending on which category you book.

Entertainment on board the Star Princess cruise ship

The Star Princess by day

Daytime activities on board the Star Princess tend to centre around one of two themes; relaxation or enrichment. The library, internet cafe, art gallery and boutique shops are all excellent places to spend a morning or afternoon. If you'd like to learn a new skill while on holiday, then the Scholarship@Sea programme has a wide range of public seminars for you to choose from.

Other great places to pass the time at sea are the Sanctuary, an adults-only retreat equipped with plush lounge chairs, and the Lawn Court, for golf putting and lawn games.

Pools, spas and fitness facilities on board the Star Princess

There are four freshwater pools on the Star Princess; the Lotus Pool, the Neptune Pool, the Calypso Pool and the Terrace Pool. The Neptune Pool is home to Movies Under the Stars, while the Calypso Pool has a retractable roof so it can be enjoyed rain or shine. There are 9 whirlpool spas throughout the ship.

The Lotus Spa and Fitness Centre is inspired by Asia, and the treatments available reflect this. Popular treatments include Reiki, Thai massage and Balinese massage. The Lotus Spa also has its own thermal suite. The fitness centre is equipped with all of the latest cardio machines and is also home to a few group classes, such as yoga and pilates.

If you'd prefer to keep fit outside, the sports court is a great place for a game of basketball or paddle tennis, and there is also a jogging track on the top deck. Other great ways to exercise include ping-pong and golf putting.

Star Princess nightlife

When the stars come out the Star Princess really does shine! This cruise ship has three main entertainment venues; the Princess Theatre, the Explorer's Lounge and the Vista Lounge. At the Princess Theatre be prepared to be wowed by signature production shows. A variety of performances are on at the other two lounges - be sure to check the entertainment schedule.

If it's dancing you're interested in, head to the Wheelhouse Bar. This nautical-inspired venue has a great atmosphere and is popular from the early evening onwards. As the night progresses, Skywalker's - the ship's late-night disco - really comes to life.

The Star Princess for families

It's not hard to see why the Star Princess is so popular among families - the children's facilities are excellent. Both the youth and teen centres have all of the latest movies and games, as well as foosball tables and jukeboxes.

The children's programmes are organised into three groups: Princess Pelicans for ages 3 to 7, Shockwaves for ages 8 to 12 and Remix for ages 13 to 17. Each group is entertained with age-appropriate activities, such as pizza nights and pajama parties for the little ones, and karaoke competitions and discos for the teens.

There are also several activities on board the Star Princess that are perfect for the whole family to enjoy. Why not spend a day at the pool or dine together at one of the several child-friendly eateries? Organised children's programmes usually take a break during breakfast, lunch and dinner so the whole family can eat together.

In the evenings parents may choose to enrol their children in group babysitting so they can enjoy the ship's nightlife. There is no in-cabin babysitting available. 

I have enjoyed visiting as much of the world as possible over the years. Europe and the Mediterranean are personal favourites, but there is so much to see very close to our little Australasian corner of the globe- one of my top travel experiences was snorkeling with tropical fish and turtles in New Caledonia! Cruising is a fantastic way to see it all, and we hope to make booking a cruise easier for both first-timers and old salts. From ship tips to destination news and views, we will keep you up-to-date. Happy cruising!
