Star Princess

A destination all of her own ... and now completely refurbished

Star Princess is a destination all of 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

  • Relax at your choice of four pools as well as the Lotus Spa
  • Dine on some of the finest food at sea in the Amalfi, Portofino and Capri dining rooms, or go casual with pizza and burgers
  • Enjoy myriad entertainment options from dancing at Skywalkers Nightclub to relaxing conversation at Shooter’s Cigar Bar
  • Star Princess of Princess Cruises

    Star Princess, sister ship to Grand and Golden Princess, joined the Princess Cruises fleet in February 2002, offering a range of amenities 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.

    The ship 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 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, and a swim-against-the-current lap pool.

    Star Princess received a multi-million pound renovation during a two-week dry dock in January 2018 as part of Princess Cruises’ £330m multi-year ship renovation campaign. She now boasts improvements including redesigned youth centres, a wider choice of shopping, an enhanced spa and an updated fitness centre.

    The onboard kids’ club was redesigned in partnership with the Discovery Channel and renamed “Camp Discovery”, with three new youth centres:

  • The Treehouse (formerly Pelicans, ages 3-7): forest and animals
  • The Lodge (formerly Shockwaves, ages 8-12): inspired by the outdoors
  • The Beach House (formerly Remix, ages 13-17): surf-themed lounge

  • The onboard salon and treatments rooms were upgraded while the fitness centre includes updated equipment.

    A greater retail choice is available, with a more modernised cosmetic and fragrance shop as well as a new jewellery shop, Effy. The main retail outlets have some of the latest products on their shelves including Under Armour athletic wear.

    New carpet and upholstery can be found throughout the vessel while the Princess livery is now on the ship’s hull. All 1,300 staterooms had the line’s signature Princess luxury beds and linens fitted.

    Sabatini’s Italian Trattoria, Princess’ signature speciality restaurant, has a refreshed menu and décor, while the casino has upgraded machines and tables.

    Jan Swartz, Princess Cruises’ president, said: “Star Princess now offers many of the signature product innovations our guests have come to love, including the Princess luxury bed, Camp Discovery and a revamped Sabatini’s.

    These enhancements continue our £330 million multi-year ship renovation campaign, ‘Come Back New Promise’, enhancing our onboard guest experience.”
