FABULOUS CRUISE

Sail Date: February 2013
Destination: Southern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)

Embarktion: Had to wait in line longer than usual and was a little difficult to stand for that length of time. But finally got on board and luggage arrived promptly. Was on Plaza 232 inside and would book this room again.

Dining: Had dinner in Michaelangelos every evening (freestyle) but did sit at same 2 person table with same waiter Jolene and Vladameer. Cannot say enough of the fabulous service and the food was excellent. Lobster served 2nd formal night. Assistance by the staff in Horizon Court was excellent. Always someone there to help. Trident Grill Hamburgers the best you can find. Disappointed in Crown Grill. Ate there last night and filet was tough and lobster too salty. Have ate in Crown Grill numerous times on other ships so was very surpised. Fellow cruiser had rib eye and said it was great.

Entertainment: Shows were short but no big deal. They were entertaining.

Ports: Enjoyed them. Did island tours of the ones we had not seen More before.

Had sailed last year with NCL on Epic. Had a good time but the service and food
on the Emerald by far surpassed NCL. I have cruised with Princess before and had thought to try another line for comparison and I think in the future I will be staying with Princess. Less

Cabin review: Emerald Princess Interior Double Caribe p232

P232 great location to International cafe, Piazza, elevators, debarktion. Was twin bed set up. Beds were a little hard. Did hear a little noise from the crew space but not much. Shower was a little small but adequate however no where to put shampoo.

California Lighthouse

Was very busy here. Stopped for a short time. Would recommend seeing it.

Island Tour

(4)
Enjoyed the tour. Aruba has a lot more money than most islands so it is cleaner. Beaches are very white and clean. Very commercial island.

Ostrich Farm

Was interesting information but would not do again.

Did island tour and guide was not fluent in english so was very hard to understand. Would say this is not a pretty island. Very dry and lot of cactus. But they say snorkelling is the best here.

Because of wind they cancelled bbq on shore so we did not go. Had been there before and enjoyed beach and bbq.

Had been to St Thomas before. Went ashore and walked around shops.
