Star Princess

Shining among the fleet as one of Princess Cruises' most incredible ships, a trip around the Pacific never felt so luxuriously simple.

About Star Princess

Specialising in cruises around the Pacific, Star Princess takes her guests on incredible trips around the USA and Canada, for wine tastings, sight-seeing and city day trips. In-between these excursions to land, however, the excitement is all onboard, with incredible food and drink, invigorating activities and relaxing and cosy staterooms.

A cruise with Star Princess starts and finishes with the word luxury, whether in your room or out on deck. When choosing your accommodation option you can rest assured that every room is fully equipped with the amenities you need to have a comfortable trip. Everything else is extra, from the sea views, to the private balconies – it just gets better and better.

If you’re looking for excitement, look no further, onboard Star Princess every day is filled with theatre, film or fitness, depending on what you’re in the mood for. The Lotus Spa and Oasis Hot Tub offer opportunities to pamper yourself, while the Grand Casino lets you put your luck to the test before a night out at one of the many bars for cocktails, or a bit of all important networking at Skywalker’s Club.

Star Princess also outshines the competition with her incredible culinary options. The International Cafe offers laid-back dining, with plenty of different specialities from all around the world. If you want a la carte elegance, visit the Amalfi restaurant and sample its fine food and wine. Sabatini’s offers beautiful Mediterranean classics, so you’ll feel a little bit European wherever in the world you are.
