:)Anyone been on Star Princess lately? My wife and I are doing a southern Caribbean cruise on her in April.Any info or tips would be greatly appreciated as we are first time cruisers with Princess.(we have used RCI 6 times before)
We are celebrating her 50th birthday on board. Thanks
Just got off the Star Princess from the Mediterranean. she is an older ship, perhaps about ten years old. There is some wear and tear because of her age but all in all I was pleased. The captain at the time was Captain kent who hails from England. I had sailed with him previously on anotther Princess ship. Princess is my favorite cruise line. Of course the staff, food, entertainment were excellent.
Be sure to pick a date to celebrate your wife's 50th b'day when you fill in the info on the Cruise Personalizer ... and not necessarily the right day. I'd recommend the earliest date (2nd night of the cruise) cuz you'll get balloons and a sign on your cabin door for the rest of the cruise.
I'll be on the Star in April - also celebrating my b'day, but this will be my 24th cruise with Princess. Never sailed on the Star or her sister ships (Golden and Grand) but love them all.
I'd also recommend the steak house restaurant - Crown Grill.
Will you be on the April 3 cruise ... with me???
I cruise the Emerald Princess, Eastern Caribbean on April 16, 2012
