Introduction

Arriving on the scene in 2002, Star Princess was the third of nine vessels that make up Princess Cruises’ Grand Class—big ships that carry more than 2600 passengers apiece (at double occupancy). While there are lots of similarities between the Grand Class ships, as one of the earlier vessels Star Princess has a few distinguishing characteristics to show off, including a racy spoiler we found both amusingly retro and futuristic at the same time. Two primary destinations are served by Star Princess—Alaska each summer and Hawaii in the winter—and a broad, mainstream audience lines up for the comfortable, if predictable cruise experience Princess excels in. What we didn’t expect was the serenade emanating from the walls of our cabin each evening.
