The biggest thing to hit Los Angeles
Star Princess is a destination all her own, and with more than 700 balcony staterooms and an entire deck of mini-suites, you can enjoy your own stellar view.
Packed with amenities, you can
Star Princess, the sister ship to Grand and Golden Princess, joined the Princess Cruises fleet in February 2002. Her maiden voyage was a one-off, 26-day, Pacific Rim cruise from Singapore to Los Angeles where she became, at that time, the largest-ever cruise ship to be based there, operating a schedule of seven-night cruises to Mexico.
Star Princess offers a range of amenities that is typical of such big ships, but the atmosphere on board is still intimate, with well-proportioned, welcoming rooms.
One of her many innovations was the 15,000 sq ft Spa area offering guests added facilities such as mud and steam baths.
Star Princess followed in the footsteps of her sister ships Grand and Golden Princess and continued the Personal Choice Cruising philosophy enabling passengers to follow their own agenda by offering a greater variety of activities and entertainment, as well as Personal Choice Dining.
She features many of the same popular innovations that made headlines when her sister Grand Princess debuted, including a wedding chapel and wedding-at-sea programme, two specialty restaurants and three separate show lounges.
She also sports Grand Princess’s dramatic signature characteristic - a disco/observation lounge set high atop the ship and accessible only by a glass-enclosed, moving “skywalk” - as well as a 24-hour AOL Internet Cafe, a nine-hole putting green, a swim-against-the-current lap pool and an expanded children’s and teen’s center.
It is also enhanced by offering private balconies on nearly 80 per cent of all outside cabins, making this sought-after feature an affordable luxury for many.
Her homeports are Los Angeles for Mexican Riviera cruises and Vancouver/Seward for Gulf of Alaska cruises.
