We chose this cruise because we wanted to see the North Cape and midnight sun. Thoroughly enjoyable voyage although the weather could have been kinder. A few rough seas and sickness - although thankfully we were OK. Even managed a bit ... Read more

August might sound like a good time to cruise to the Arctic Circle but it's wise to go prepared. As we discovered, it can be wet and windy, so we were glad we took waterproof over-trousers. We were less prepared for the numerous children ... Read more

We chose this 14 day cruise for its itinerary as we had only every visited Bruges before. Never started a cruise from Southampton due to the difficulties of getting down from the North driving with a stopover was our best option to ensure ... Read more

Had a fabulous cruise to the Baltic. All ports of call were excellent. The standard of service was great. And the staff went well beyond the call of duty to ensure you had a great cruise. The food on board was excellent but some of the ... Read more

This was our first Princess cruise - we have been doing Celebrity, but decided to try Princess primarily for the Baltic itinerary (Celebrity does not visit Gdansk Poland). The Emerald Princess was quite nicely finished, the common areas ... Read more

We selected this cruise primarily for the itinerary, as I have been somewhat disappointed with the Princess cruise line in the past and it is not my first choice for a cruise. We have previously sailed both the Baltic and the Norwegian ... Read more

We booked this cruise, our first Princess Cruise, mostly for its itinerary in Scandinavia, which interested us greatly. We weren't expecting a lot from the ship itself due to its negative reviews. However, we were pleasantly surprised! ... Read more

We chose this Scandinavian cruise as it is a part of the world I have always wanted to visit, and Emerald Princess happened to be there. We visited Zeebrugge, Copenhagen and Oslo, and had a visit to Helsinborg in Sweden aborted due to bad ... Read more

As a first time Cruise - i have to say how impressed I was. From the start of the cruise everything was made easy, checking in at the port was a doddle, off car park shuttle bus, cases taken off us - a short walk to terminal and check in, ... Read more

Enjoyable cruise, comfortable ship - the real star of the cruise was the Norwegian scenery, particularly the wild and remote North Cape, and the midnight sun. The ship's staff were superb, polite, helpful, doing everything they could. I ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it included the North Cape of Norway, the northernmost tip of Europe and went to several ports we had not been to. Embarkation was excellent as was disembarkation. Minimal waiting time to get on and our ... Read more

my general feeling was it was an average cruise, nothing out of the ordinary. The ports were reasonably interesting but somehow the cruise was lacklustre. Food, entertainment was ok, me us in dining room were frankly boring and lacked ... Read more
