Embarkation was excellent. We were soon aboard and no huge queue for security. Cabin was as expected. Steward, Conrado, was excellent and kept it spotless. Requests were soon carried out. Muster drill was dragged out and exhausting for ... Read more

We chose this cruise as we had never been to The Canaries. Ship was very busy and like others on this cruise we could not get a seat in International cafe or crooners bar and had great difficulty getting a seat in Horizon at breakfast and ... Read more

The embarkation was the best we have had. The evening meal got off to a poor start. Steak pie in a pot was on the menu, and that was all you got - no potatoes, no vegetables. Was told there were vegetables in the pot. The pastry was cut ... Read more

Emerald Princess had just undergone a major refit, so we were interested to see what had changed. Sabatini's had become “Share” (now 29 USD extra) and part of the Wheelhouse had become the “Salty Dog Gastropub” ... Read more

This was our 17th cruise - the 4th with Princess, the remainder with P&O. Our previous Princess ships were the Island, the Regal and the Royal, so we knew what to expect - or so we thought! It's my fault - I should have done my ... Read more

We had never been to the Channel Isle and thought this was an ideal way of combining seeing Guernsey, enjoying a short cruise and trying out a new ship and cruise line. What an mistake. The passengers were so many that we unable to find ... Read more

First of all, we have travelled many times with Princess and I normally rate them highly. I was so disappointed to find the usual Princess standards had fallen off a cliff onboard Emerald Princess. What happened to all the crew? The ... Read more

Short itinerary and date was ideal - especially as we went as far South as Lisbon. Travelled down a couple of days in advance just to elongate the holiday, stayed near Romsey at the Potter Heron Hotel - very good, visited Romsey Abbey, ... Read more

This was our first cruise with the Princess line and sadly will be our last. We had booked a balcony cabin and were thrilled when Princess emailed us a few weeks before sailing saying we'd been upgraded to a mini suite. The embarkation ... Read more

Cruised with Princess for the first time and doubt I would go with them again. Emerald is a large ship with plenty of things to do and places to eat, drink or just sit and relax, generally the ship was clean and tidy. The cabin was okay ... Read more

We've sailed on a number of cruise lines, from Norwegian to Seabourn and Princess is the best in our book on the basis of quality and value. (Nothing can beat Seabourn, but the cost such that we can't make it a consistent way of life.) ... Read more

We chose this cruise based on the transatlantic itinerary. Embarkation and lifeboat drill were flawless. We particularly like the inside lifeboat drill where you are able to sit in air conditioning for the 20 minutes or so. Other lines ... Read more

Two words to describe it, below expectations. Our cabin steward was very efficient with what he could be in control of but we never got bathrobes! He can't supply what he does not have. It took two days to get pre-bought water two days ... Read more
