Overall, the ship was amazing. The dining was a WOW!! Although the entertainment was average, with only 4 or 5 musicals, the ship still kept our family of 4 busy throughout the whole day. The sporting and fitness facilities on the ship ... Read more

Good itinerary visiting 6 south Pacific islands. 2 days at sea followed by an island a day for 4 consecutive days - that's hard going! To get the most from this cruise you must enjoy swimming, snorkeling, warm humid days and remote islands ... Read more

We are regular Princess cruisers and booked this cruise as a means of sampling a different Princess ship other that the ones permanently in Australia. Last year we cruised on the Golden when it first arrived in Australia so we were looking ... Read more

My wife and I had wanted to do a cruise around both the North and South Islands of New Zealand for a number of years. The only cruise line that was available in November 2016 for this holiday cruise was the Princess Line, in particular ... Read more

No atmosphere. Crew great. Food options buffet limited, some dining times only one section open in buffet. Outdoor eateries great but some improvement could made for Australian taste in Trident Grill (sliced beetroot instead of cubed) ... Read more

The Emerald Princess is a sister ship of the Ruby and Crown Princess on which we sailed before. Hence we felt immediately at home after a smooth embarkation in Sydney. We especially like the coffee corner “International ... Read more

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 choose this cruise as some of my family were cruising all the way to Perth on this cruise, we are still working and could not afford the time off Embarkation was a bit slow but that was due to the staff having to check the visas for ... Read more

The repositioning cruise was chosen because it seemed to be well priced and was a nice way of returning to Australia. The ports were an annoying interlude between the sea days. No bridge Director on board yet lots of sea days. Sorry ... Read more

We joined this 4 nations cruise in Dubai after a 2 night stay and were on the Emerald for 10 days disembarking in Singapore. Embarkation was very smooth and we were aboard before we knew it. We chose this segment as it was an offer and ... Read more

It would take us some hours to list all the issues (from a customer’s viewpoint) that need immediate addressing by Princess, as a result of our experiences during the 48 day Southampton to Sydney cruise on the Emerald Princess, but ... 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

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

This was our first cruise and we loved every second. The entire experience was amazing, and for me it was hard to find fault. I know with it being my first cruise, it could be argued that I have no other cruise lines to compare it to, but ... Read more
