During the Star Princess ship’s 2017 refurbishment, all staterooms were upgraded with “Princess Luxury Bed”.

The new cabin beds feature a luxury pillow-top mattress, individually wrapped coils (reducing surface sway) and hypoallergenic duvets.

All top-tier Suites plus M1-Mini Suites enjoy exclusive access to Byron Beach Club (deck 16 forward), complimentary in-cabin dining (hours d’ oeuvres), priority embarkation/disembarkation/tendering, a separate area (part of the MDR /main dining room) reserved for Suite passengers only.

Suite Dining is available for breakfast and dinner every day, and also for lunch on sea days only.

Cots are available in selected cabins only and not available in any interior and oceanview quad cabins. Bedding configurations 3- and 4-berth staterooms may vary. It may not be possible to have Queen-size bedding when the upper bunks (3rd and 4th beds) are in use.
