We chose this ship for the Itinerary as we hadnt been to New Zealand for a long time, especially the South Island. Boarding was a breeze due to our Platinum status gained from sailing with P and O UK and Aus. We were on in about 10 ... Read more

This was our third cruise on Emerald Princess this year and we were surprised how much everything had improved on this latest cruise from Singapore to Sydney. The majority of those on board had joined in Southampton for the cruise to ... Read more

We chose this cruise for it's length (30 days) and ports of call. Princess does deliver on quality every time. It's not the most luxurious ship out there and the cuisine isn't outstanding but overall service is very good. The cabins are ... Read more

Although we were on the 30 day portion of this cruise there were a number of disorganized or poorly administered issues that prevented this from being a home-run. Most notably among the administration issues was the India visa fiasco. We ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we wanted to sail the Suez Canal. We boarded the Emerald Princess in Southampton and we had a smooth check in. We had our Indian Visas and so this did not hold us up at all. The ships crew were fantastic, ... Read more

This cruise departed Southampton on my birthday, and arrived in Melbourne Australia on my wife's birthday. Good signs (or a good excuse!). The Emerald Princess layout was very familiar, having sailed on her sister ships. We had not had a ... Read more

I wanted to get from UK to Australia on an alternative to flying. This ships repositioning met the need and the dates suited. Ive had not sailed with Princess Line before so it was a new experience and also had not done longer than 14 ... Read more

My wife and I chose this cruise due to the price, the duration and the departure date. Our cruise was for 30 days sailing from Southampton at the end of September, so we avoided some of the autumn at home in the UK. We considered the ... Read more

We booked this cruise fairly close to departure and as a result only had an option for a guarantee inside cabin. As per the cabin review we would not do this again on this ship. Our stateroom attendant however was wonderful. Always ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it suited where we wanted to go at a time we wanted to go. The ship itself is a nicely laid out ship although a bit tired. It was being repainted during the course of the voyage. The cabins were of average ... Read more

We are not Princess aficionados and only one of our previous 13 cruises was with Princess. There is no particular reason for this, but we choose cruises on itinerary, dates and price with cruise line as a secondary consideration, and ... Read more

Liked the Emerald last time. This time very mediocre entertainment, definitely need more outside acts . Too much emphasis on trivia and silly game shows. Cabin was excellent with good service. Horizon buffet very tasty as was food from ... Read more

First time cruisers, two adults, two children 11 and 9, interconnecting mini suites( not necessary but the booking is a long story) although I would do interconnecting rooms again, just smaller. Overall conclusion, this is akin to a ... Read more
