We're booked for the Sun Princess southbound cruise out of Seward on May 20, 2002. We have cruised the northbound before, but this is our first southbound and seeking a lot of information.

We will be on the Dawn Princess April 6. It is a surprise for my husbands 40th b-day. The last time we cruised was on our honeymoon in 1991. I'm sure alot has changed. If anyone is sailing on that cruise, or has any advice please feel free. Thanks, Colleen

ljm- The Star Princess is on her inaugural cruise right now. I have not seen any news posted by any of the passengers. As of today, she had crossed the Pacific Ocean from Asia, and was in Oahu, Honolulu. Check out her bridge cam at www.kroooz-cams.com.
Kuki- We are going on the Star Princess, Mexican Riviera, April 27th. We are so excited about having a mega ship like the Star here on the left coast! I can't imagine what she will look like in Alaska! It's like she is as large as the port cities!!
Vada<...thanks for asking!

You are the first person I have found on this ship. I thought that we may be the only ones on the ship. We were on this cruise 2 years ago and had such a great time we decided to go again. We are flying out of Houston. Where are you from?

Bluebell,

You picked a great ship for your first cruise! I think that MV Sun Princess and her three sisters, MV Dawn Princess, MV Sea Princess, and MV Ocean Princess, are the best of the fleet!

Norm.

ljm,

can anyone explain the Personal Choice dining option?

Basically, "Personal Choice Dining" is a marketing and advertising campaign slogan for Princess's dining options. Aboard all Princess ships that have two or more dining rooms, passengers may select either (1) Traditional Dining, with first and second seatings at designated times (normally 6:15 and 8:30), offered in one main dining room, or (2) Anytime Dining, which operates like a restaurant ashore, in another main dining room. The third main dining room aboard MV Star Princess can operate either way, depending upon demand on a particular sailing.

In addition to the choice of assignment either to Traditional Dining or to Anytime Dining, most Princess ships offer some alternative restaurants. MV Star Princess offers the following additional options.

>> 1. The Horizon Court serves food 24 hours per day. It offers breakfast, lunch, and dinner buffets and, in the later evening, a bistro set-up (with table service) that extends thorugh the "wee hours" of the morning.

>> 2. The pizzeria and the grill, located at the forward end of the main pool area, open for lunch and throughout the afternoon for snacks.

>> 3. The "sucker" restaurants -- Sabatini's Trattoria and the southwestern restaurant -- open for lunch and for dinner at an extra charge.

Finally, there's also 24 hour room service. On Princess ships, any item served in the main dining rooms is available through room service during dining room hours. There's also an additional room service menu that's rather limited but always available.

BTW, there has been some confusion about dress on formal nights since Princess adopted the "Personal Choice Dining" program and slogan at about the same time that Norwegian Cruise Line adopted the "Freestyle Cruising" campaign. Aboard Princess cruises, formal attire is still "expected" (that is, required) on formal evenings. Princess did not follow Noweegian Cruise Line's policy shift to "formal optional" rather than strict formal evenings.

Have a great cruise!

Norm.
