Ship Facts: Emerald Princess Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Emerald Princess Deck Plans
Emerald Princess..Southern/Eastern Carribbean.
ARRIVED:-

at Embassy Suites April 06...really nice hotel near cruise ships...carpets a little worn for a top hotel,but everything else perfect.Even a Mgr.party for 2 hours with all u can drink,beer,liquor,etc,Popcorn,chips,etc

Went to Outback steakhouse for dinner,really busy,but great food,good prices.

TRANSFER:-

to cruise ship just before noon.Only took 10 min.to get there and 5-10 until we were on board with baggage about 45 min. later.The fastest time ever.So organised.Brought a 12 pack of Beer in backpack,Not a word said!!

This is our 15th cruise on Princess and 1 on Carnival and 1 on RCL.

ROOM;-

C753 Aft..10th floor,Caribe Deck.Loved location,but would never take it again.Florida to Aruba for 2.5 days was very rough at the rear of ship.My DW was sick on the 2nd day.People at Mid Ship hardly felt the movement.Like sitting in a car and someone rocking back and forth 24/7...Not good.

Beds r HARD AS ROCK,even with an egg-crate.

Ship is huge,never a problem getting deck chairs unless u go at noon.On sea days,i got up at 6 am took my books,glasses,towels and picked wherever i wanted,went back to room for DW,had breakfast and out to our chairs for the entire day.Perfect.If u r not in good shape,staying at rear of ship,it is a LONG way to the pool areas!

Dining:-

Wanted a table for 2,got it,but was a foot from other tables in a row.Talked to M'D and said i am a big man and would it be possible to have a nicer table,if there is room?He gave us a table for 4,just for the 2 of us for entire cruise.

Waiter Arnold,in Da Vinci was the nicest we ever had and he did Magic tricks at end of our meal every night!Bus Boy,Armando was excellent also.

Food was perfect,cooked perfect,but by the end of 10 days ,i wanted a meal at home.Seemed like ir was a lot of the same.

Pizza was worst of any cruise...to thin,had to use a fork,Burgers,Dogs,Fries,Ice-cream-great.

Entertainment;-

The Beatlemania show got rave reviews.It brought a tear to my eyes.Brought back memories of younger days. - standing room only. The others were typical of Princess - long-running musical shows, a comedian and a ventriloquist - nothing great but they were enjoyable.

3000 passengers...Approx:800 Canadian...1700 American and others.Good mix of all ages,few babies,few teens.All ages on board.

Weather was not as good as other cruises.Lot of overcast days.Maybe a good thing,so u don't burn so bad.

Ship,Staff,food,drinks,everything was very positive.

Leaving was effortless and fast.

A Perfect Cruise on the Love Boat.
