Default Star Princess Drydock Pictures

We just returned from San Francisco to see the Star Princess in drydock @ Pier 70.

For better or for worse, MUTS (Movies Under the Stars) is definitely going in – the frame was already installed.

It's amazing how big these ships look when they are out of the water

We have pics in the link attached.

Very amazing photo's, thanks for posting those. I was just on Star last month in Alaska. Besides the MOTS, what else are they going to be doing/fixing on Star?

Thanks for the photos. We will be sailing on the Star in March of 2009.

The MUTS will be a very nice feature. Our last cruise was on the Emerald and it was great to look at a movie at sea under the stars.

Thanks everyone.

Donna - I believe they are brining the Star in line with Crown, Emerald and Ruby, including converting the Atrium to the Piazza, adding International Cafe and Vines and changing Tequila's to Crown Grill. They were going to move the Casino to deck 7 and add several ocean view family suites but I've heard that part of the conversion has been scrapped.

Thanks C & J,
I had no idea. When going on Star recently, for some reason, I thought it already had MOTS, glad to hear she'll have it soon.

Thanks for the pics!

We will be on the Golden next year and are hoping she will also get 'refreshed' prior to our October cruise.

Great pics. Thanks for posting them. I was on the Carnival Freedom earlier this year and the Seaside Theater (which is the same as movies under the stars) was really cool watching movies during the night.

A news item i just read about the stars drydock

Star Princess set sail this weekend after a three-week drydock that dramatically transformed several spaces onboard, including turning the ship's atrium into a vibrant street café-like piazza, adding the company's signature adults-only retreat called The Sanctuary, and installing a 300-square-foot Movies Under the Stars poolside screen.

These features, which have been enthusiastically enjoyed by passengers on Princess Cruises' newest vessels, have inspired an expansion to other ships in the fleet, and Star Princess is the first to be revitalized with these favorite elements.

Star Princess' updated piazza-style atrium will now feature an array of dining and entertainment opportunities including the specialty coffees, freshly baked goods, paninis, salads and tapas of the International Café. It will also introduce an expanded Vines wine bar concept, which will feature more than 30 wines by the glass, a selection of artisan meats and cheeses, plus a wine shop where passengers can purchase their favorite bottle.

On the top deck of the ship, passengers can now relax in the tranquil environment of The Sanctuary, Princess' signature adults-only retreat featuring plush padded lounge chairs and the services of dedicated Serenity Stewards. Along with enjoying refreshing beverages and light snacks, visitors to this exclusive space can also receive a massage in one of two private cabanas.

Princess' trademark Times Square-style Movies Under the Stars poolside screen is now in place and will show a variety of films, concerts and special events daily. And in the evenings it becomes an outdoor theater with specially covered lounge chairs and cozy blankets, where moviegoers can enjoy free popcorn, plus other snacks and beverages.

Additional changes made during the drydock include a new Internet Café and library area, enhancements to the onboard boutiques, the addition of LCD flat screen televisions in all staterooms, and a variety of other cosmetic updates.

Star Princess is the first of three ships to receive these updates. Caribbean Princess and Golden Princess will also receive similar transformations in subsequent drydocks, in January and April of 2009, respectively. Caribbean Princess and Golden Princess will also receive additional enhancements including a new Crown Grill steak and seafood restaurant, a new casino area and six additional suites.
