Mario and Goombario flying the Star Cruiser

The Star Cruiser is a ship built by the Star Spirits in Paper Mario. Mario and all of his partners use this ship to travel to Bowser's Castle. It docks inside the giant Bowser head in the front of the castle, which is a hangar for Bowser's Koopa Clown Cars. Mario can return back to the cruiser at any point and return back to Star Haven or even Toad Town.

The Star Cruiser later appeared during the parade when the player beats the game. All of Mario's party members can be seen in or around the vehicle.

  • Goombario is relaxing on the Star Cruiser.
  • Kooper is waving to someone at the right side of the vehicle.
  • Bombette is also relaxing like Goombario.
  • Lady Bow is laughing as she uses her taunt.
  • Parakarry is flying over the vehicle, tossing confetti.
  • Watt is also hovering like Parakarry.
  • Sushie is jumping around inside of the vehicle.
  • And finally, Lakilester is also floating with his cloud but waves to the left and then the right side.


  • When the player travels to Bowser's Castle, most of Toad Town's residents think it's a shooting star, and they wish for things such as: "I want Princess Peach to return," and a little Toad wishes for Shroom Cake.
  • In the map, Toad Town, the castle grounds, and Bowser's castle are to the left of the Star Cruiser. But during the cutscene, Mario is going right.
