My partner and I have just returned from a 12 night cruise of Europe on the Star Princess.
The ship was lovely and very clean. Food was also quite good with plenty of choices and venues in which to eat.
There was plenty of entertainment - some good and some who left a lot to be desired - especially some of the vocalists in the bars. The star of the show was definitely Mauritzio who sang and played the piano to perfection.
Having been on Princess cruise ships before, one can definitely see there have been cutbacks. No beautiful floral decorations anymore, no magnificent buffets and other little touches which have disappeared, which made the cruiseline that bit special. I just hope Princess don't cutback too far as regards this. Several other previous cruisers were also complaining about it.
All in all though it was a good cruise and the staff work very hard to make one's stay enjoyable.
