Star Princess (Princess Cruises)


Star Princess was the third of nine Grand-class ships by Princess Cruises, originally ordered with her two older sisters in 1998-2000.

She primarily sails from her homeport of San Francisco, USA during the summer performing roundtrip 11-day cruises to Alaska. During the winter she sails roundtrip cruises to Hawaii and Mexico.


Star Princess is one of the two remaining ships to have the “spoiler / handlebar” still on the rear of her on the top deck. It was removed from her sister, Grand Princess in 2011.
