Ship Facts: Emerald Princess Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Emerald Princess Deck Plans
Emerald Princess 10 Day Eastern Caribbean
The cruise itself was awesome - itenary and number of days were perfect. Weather was great. If you are younger and looking for a party cruise - this isn't it...lots of grey-haired people who are there to relax and enjoy their vacation :)

I would definitely check into other reviews on if you like to snorkel - we didn't plan on snorkeling in Barbados and should have...although we did take a private cab and saw Harrison's Caves - awesome place to visit!

Don't bother with Magic Ice Bar in St. Thomas - you can go there directly yourself and save $$ for the same tour. Not really worth $20...

Grand Turk - spend the $$ and time to go snorkeling with the sting rays - an experience of a lifetime!

Did Eco kayaking in Antigua - very interesting and fun.

We LOVED the anytime dining - showed up when we were ready to eat and asked to share with others. NEVER had to wait for a table! met many nice folks each evening.

The weather in all ports was very WARM! i couldn't imagine how the temp would be past April. Water in the ports was in the 70's and very refreshing!

Self-carried luggage out for early flight - ZERO problems! Met in theater at 7:10 am and were walking out of the ship by 7:40 am. We took taxi - $14 for two - and were at the airport by 7:50 am!!

Don't forget you are allowed one bottle of wine each to carry on board. Our cabin steward brought us wine glasses so we could have it in our cabin!

Loved the ship and staff - entertainment was 'ok' compared to other shows I've seen. Didn't seem to have much activities going on during sea days that we were interested in.

Overall truly enjoyed this relaxing vacation and would definitely do these islands again!
