Three years ago we went on a Mediterranean cruise for our 40th anniversary. On that Princess cruise we met a couple from England who was also celebrating their 40th anniversary. We were seated together in the dining room. We had such a wonderful time with them, that we kept in touch for the last 3 years and decided that we needed to go on another cruise with them. Therefore, after many e-mails back and forth, we decided on the Emerald Princess Southern Caribbean tour. The cruise was everything that we were hoping it would be and more. Our interior room was always ready for us and our cabin stewardess was always accommodating. My husband has a bad back and she was able to find a foam mattress to add to our bed to make him more comfortable very quickly. Also, our toilet wouldn't flush all the time, and that problem was quickly resolved.
Entertainment on board was wonderful. We especially loved to watch and interact with Kory Simon, the piano man. He was so funny and engaging, that we went back to see him almost every night! All the performances that we saw were great, including the Emerald dancers, comics, and hypnotist. We enjoyed the afternoon triva's and walking thru the art auctions and admiring all the pictures. Shopping was also a lot of fun with many great buys and bargains.
We ate dinner every evening in the Da Vinci dining room with 6 other passengers and had a wonderful time getting to know our friends from Canada and USA along with our old friends from England. The menu was also very delightful and the food was very yummy.
Most of our excursions were very informative and fun. The only one we did not care for was Bonaire, but the other countries were very nice.
