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 have cruised to the Mediterranean twice and wanted to see Northern Europe. Very nice, the ship is lovely. The food is good, I read a lot of reviews that said the food was terrible, did not find this. Excursions are good, needed more ... 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
