Emerald Princess - Very limited entertainment for a younger crowd (we had fun twice, maybe), younger being in mid 40's and younger. We've gone on cruises before where the entertainment was phenomenal for all ages and lasted past 10:30pm. ... Read more

The ship was packed with the senior set - many had stayed on the ship from the previous voyage. Medical emergencies every day, ambulances at the dock, and even a helo evac at sea. If your idea of a great day at sea is a senior center ... Read more

We choose this cruise as it had only 3 sea days and 18 ports so it was all about small group tours to maximize the locations. We are experienced cruises and decide in advance if it is a cruise to relax and use the ship board activities, ... Read more
