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

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

The Emerald Princess is indeed a beautiful ship. Embarkation and disembarkation at the end of the cruise was efficient and swift. The décor throughout is excellent. So why only 3*? Well, to start with, when one orders a ... Read more

A lovely cruise to the Norwegian Fjords, made even more enjoyable by the weather. We did not buy official excursions as even in the quietest ports of Olden and Skjolden pleasant walks availed themselves taking you to idyllic sights. ... Read more
