Hi natooning -
I just came back from the same cruise (Nov 13 - 20) on the Star Princess. Wonderful time! We did our cruise in a different order, Princess Cays was our last stop. My suggestion is to make spa reservations on the days the ship is at sea, so Monday, or Friday? The other days you'll be too busy getting off the ship and going on excursions. The onboard activities are the usual fare; pool side contests, bingo, etc. All the shows are in the evenings. The only thing I found disappointing was the midnight champagne tower. It's a big hype for nothing, and the champagne tasted like vinegar! Not worth staying up for. Take in the piano lounges with an evening cocktail. Very relaxing. Have a great time.
