The Star Princess
The "Star Princess" is the newest and largest of the ships owned by Princess Cruise Lines. It is actually heavier than a modern Nimitz class aircraft carrier. The Star Princess made her first cruise just six months before ours, so the ship was still essentially brand new. Here are a few statistics to think about while looking at the pictures:
