Sailed in The Emerald Princess for a Christmas cruise. The ship overall was looking nice after 1 13-day dry dock in December - new mattresses in the cabin were great. However, the drapes in our cabin were filthy and soiled. And after ... Read more

We have cruised quite a bit in the "distant" past and just a little bit in the last 15 years. I think we are spoiled with our "seasoned" experiences of cruising when there were less passengers and more service and ... Read more

I have been sailing with Princess since the 90s and I must say they are slipping down the slope quickly. As others pointed out, the Emerald Princess should not have left dry dock. I don't believe the ship was ready and I too question the ... Read more
