Ship Facts: Emerald Princess Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Emerald Princess Deck Plans
A Wonderful Cruise in Northern Europe
My parents and I were on the July 5th sailing of the Emerald Princess.  What a great time we had.  I had done a lot of research prior to the cruise and had organized our own tours in each of the ports.  We arrived in Copenhagen two days prior to explore the city and adjust to the time change.  Had some issues with our flight, but finally arrived 5 hours later than expected.  Took a taxi to the Marriott where we were staying.  The Marriott was a very nice hotel.  We stayed on the club level, so had breakfast included as well as light appetizers in the evening.  This was very nice.  The weather in Copenhagen was FANTASTIC.  We took a canal cruise, went to Tivoli Gardens, went up in the Keep, had lunch in Nyhavven.  Usual tourist stuff.  When it was time to go to the ship, we took a cab.  There were minimal lines to check in.  We were pleasantly surprised to have been upgraded to a suite when we checked in.  Very nice surprise!  With that came some special services, including a breakfast service in Sabatini's restaurant.  This was very nice - as the food was made to order, whatever you wanted and the service was outstanding.  We ate breakfast at the buffet one day and were wishing we hadn't.  We were really spoiled with the breakfast service that was offered.  The ship itself is nice, found it to be a little confusing - it took until about day 8 until we had finally figured it all out.  This is a port intensive cruise.  Very memorable, but if you're looking for a relaxing vacation, this probably isn't it.  The food was good considering the amount of food they are preparing each day.  We chose the anytime option and it worked out well.  We made reservations and got the same table each night.  We did eat at both Sabatini's and Crown Grill and both are worth the extra money.  Our first day was a much needed day at sea.  The weather cooperated and we spent much of the day out on the sun deck.
