Very disappointing: Emerald Princess Cruise Review by chubbalah
Overall Member Rating
Destination: Canary Islands
We were Anytime Dining and thought the food was pretty good. Where Princess fall down is with the breakfasts. Only one MDR is open on port days until 9 . On sea days until 930 but queues snake up the More stairs to try to gain a seat. To breakfast in the Buffet(Horizon) and get a seat is pretty near impossible with people sitting , not eating but chatting and doing Sudoko until late morning. Breakfast selection in the MDR is pretty poor. Toast seems to be at a premium with only two pieces given " like gold dust"!!
The ports on this cruise were not very interesting with Madeira being the best by far. A shuttle bus was laid on to get into the town ,Funchal, costing $10 per person !!! When free shuttles are provided these are by the Port Authorities NOT by Princess
I had read reviews on here of Princess being a nickel and dime company and I think that sums it up They try to squeeze the last bit of money out of you with their expensive prices for everything.
We would not cruise with Princess again Less
