Ship Facts: Emerald Princess Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Emerald Princess Deck Plans
Well Done Transatlantic Cruise
This was our 9th cruise with Princess and our 3rd transatlantic. The weather was nice, the seas were calm and Commodore Romano ran a good ship.

Embarkation: was a mess separating past passengers from new passengers but once begun we were on board and unpacked in 45 minutes.

Cabin: with balcony located midships on the Caribe deck was clean, all items were in operating condition and the bed was comfortable.

Food: Coffee in Horizon Court is awful and needs to be improved. Having "real" coffee in the International Cafe is not a solution.

Entertainment: Moved to three shows per night but cut the show times to 35 minutes. Not worth waiting 20 minutes to see a 35 minute production.

Commodore Romano was visible every day. He was communicative and involved in making passengers feel welcome and respected.

Disembarkation: Easy and Quick. In Copenhagen with luggage in hand easily walked off the ship at 8:30 AM. The service desk tried to misinform us that we must vacated the ship between 5 and 6AM.

Ports of Call:The ports included in this transatlantic were nice and even though we had been to 4 of the 8 ports before, we happily found new places to see and explore. The time in Oslo was to short arriving at 7AM and leaving at 2PM. We did 2 Princess Tours: Le Havre to Honfleur and Rotterdam to Delft and the Hague. We enjoyed the first but the second tour was too much bus time and the venues were to small to accommodate multi-bus loads of people. At the other ports (Ponta Delgada, Cork, Dover Oslo and Copenhagen) we toured on our own. We did so because the transportation is easily available and most of the people speak fluent English and are quite helpful.

In summary this was a nice voyage well done.
