All in all, Star Princess is a good choice for multigenerational family cruises, as well as for couples all along the age gamut. The ship's size and diversity of venues allows everyone to coexist without getting in each others' space: Families and more energetic couples can play at the main pool and dine casually in the Horizon Court, while those who want to relax in peace and quiet can hit the Sanctuary adult space or the Oasis pool, then have a high-toned feast at Sabatini's.

Star Princess OVERVIEW

Star Princess is the third vessel in the 10-ship Grand class, which has defined Princess Cruises since 1998. Both classic and modern in look, she and her early sister ships were so ahead of their time when built that their younger sisters don't look significantly different — and where they do, you'd never know, it because Princess Cruises has conscientiously retrofitted the older vessels with the best elements of the new, giving a remarkable consistency to the line's onboard experience. Extremely well laid out and easy to navigate, and also surprisingly cozy despite her huge size, Star Princess offers an onboard vibe that mixes clubby lounge options with more high-energy entertainment, plus diverse dining and a good youth program.
