Emerald Princess Transatlantic - minus of couple of ports

Sail Date: September 2013
Destination: Transatlantic
Embarkation: Copenhagen

We love Princess, so will write nothing negative about this cruise. We were to have had ports in Greenland and Iceland, but both had to be cancelled due to extremely bad weather. We totally understood the captain's decison and felt he made the right call. We also missed Belfast, Ireland, again due to bad weather. Cobh, Ireland replaced Belfast and it was a wonderful port.

There were 6 days at sea in a row due to the cancelled ports of call. There was plenty to do and we were never bored. We love the sea days, anyway.

The food in the dining room and in Calypso Cove Buffet was fabulous. The service throughout the ship was top-notch, as well. The Princess Theater enterntainment was good, although we've seen better on other Princess ships...still a lot of fun and nothing to comlain about.

People need to be prepared to possibly miss ports in the North Atlantic this time of year. So many were grumbing about not being able to stop and stating that those ports were More the reason they chose this particular itinerary. Again, we were more than please with the captain's call, even though, we too, had chosen this itinerary for the same reason. Less

Cabin review:

Loved the mini-suite. Just a little extra room and the bathtub was wonderful. Nice sized balcony, too, even though we were not able to use it a lot, due to bad weather.
