We just got back from a Caribbean cruise on the Star Princess. The itinerary was great -- Jamaica, Grand Cayman, Cozumel, and the Princess private island in the Bahamas -- and we'll definitely cruise again, but not on this ship.
The food was very poor (cold, poorly prepared, tasteless), the shows were generally boring (except one comedian), the activities offered were few and disorganized... there was, for instance, a Latin dance hour in the disco the night BEFORE Latin dance lessons were offered. And the attitude of the crew was, overall, either annoying or laissez-faire to the point of being annoying.
This may be true of all ships (this was our first cruise) but there were children in every single hot tub, even the one that was posted as 'adults only.' Plus, the night before the cruise was to end, the crew closed all the hot tubs at 8 p.m. I guess the cruise was supposed to be over 12 hours before we docked.
