4.5 Editor's Rating
Emerald Princess entered service in 2007 as one of the largest ships in Princess Cruises' fleet. As far as modern mega-ships go -- with a passenger capacity of more than 3,000 -- Emerald Princess maintains the ...

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

This was our first cruise with Princess. We sailed on the Emerald Princess from Southampton on the 20th August with our Daughter son in law and two grandchildren aged 14 and 11. Embarkation was slow, as there were storms affecting the ... Read more

Having read some of the reviews (after we had booked!) we were concerned that we had made the wrong choice - delighted to report that we had a wonderful cruise and would have happily stayed on the ship and replay the holiday again! ... 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

Our first cruise was with Princess some 18 years ago and we did 8 overseas cruises with them before we decided not to fly so much and take cruises from Southampton instead. We then did over 10 cruises with Cunard and then one with P & ... Read more

Sadly the cabin crucified the experience. Wanted to experience Princess from Southampton and will probably revert to fly cruise to catch the more modern ships. Found the entertainment below par compared to the Regal. Service was very good ... Read more

We chose this cruise as a treat for my partner who had retired a few days prior to departure. Embarkation was easy and efficient and it was a bonus being able to drop hand luggage to our cabin straightaway. We were in a mini suite which ... Read more

Choose this cruise for our 25th wedding Anniversary and because it was going to the North Cape. The scenery was beautiful the Norwegians were lovely as always but the cruise left a lot to be desired. The staff were very rude on the ... Read more

We sailed to the Canaries on this ship earlier this year and the overall experience was a big disappointment. We retained this booking to Norway's North Cape with some doubt, but found the ship experience to be very much improved. ... Read more

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 cruise for the ports in Norway , particularly in the Arctic , we wanted to see. I have cruised before with Celebrity and MSC ( and enjoyed both) but for my husband it was his first time. We found the clientele were mostly ... Read more

Chose this cruise line for itinery and promise of a wonderful experience and to come back new from Princess. We were disappointed. This ship appeared to be clean, well turned out, welcoming and promised much. It failed in so many ways. ... Read more

We wanted to visit the far North and Nordkapp and this was the only cruise available. Bad weather meant missing Flam which was a pity, but the wind and swell was awful even after our delayed departure from Stavanger so right decision by ... Read more

This was our 3rd cruise as a couple, and our second cruise as a family with 2 children (aged 7 and 5). Our two previous cruises were with Royal Caribbean to Alaska and the Baltics respectively. We chose Norway and the Fjords for 3 main ... Read more

Cabin A437. Far too small for two adults and one child; 3rd bed is lowered by steward each evening and is immediately over the main bed. It is unsettling for the sleepers who may as well be in a small bunk bed! Balcony was in need of ... Read more

We decided to go on the Emerald Princess for our first cruise due to the wonderful destinations it stopped at - Barcelona, Rome, Pisa, Florence, Genoa, Corsica, Marseilles and Gibraltar. I wasn't disappointed - these destinations were ... Read more

First the few good points: Embarkation was very smooth and we were quickly on board without any fuss. Although we only had an interior stateroom it was spacious enough for our needs and what we expected. Some of the staff are ... Read more

Chose the cruise based on its destinations and also for its reputation of good food and comfortable beds which I have to say I wasn't impressed with. Cabins are noisy and aluminated with light from outside the cabin door which you can ... Read more

This was a family holiday on the Emerald Princess, which suited our required holiday dates. We thought the ship was in good order, clean and tidy - very similar to P&O's Ventura and Azura. Embarkation was first class, as was ... Read more

We chose this cruise as we wished to go from the UK rather than fly and we had cruised with Princess twice in the past. Emerald Princess and P&O's Ventura are identical ships built in the same shipyard. I looked to go with P&O on ... 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
