Emerald Princess Cruise Review by emillay999: Copenhagen to Fort Lauderdale
Overall Member Rating
Copenhagen to Fort Lauderdale
The ship is wonderful and well taken care of. Food was excellent throughout although it was repeated in the buffet often and got a little boring, it was still very good. The age of the average guest on this cruise was 70-- and boy can those guys push and shove. Lots of handicapped people, including my husband! The crew and staff are well equipped for that population and were nice and smiling and respectful day after day.
Entertainment bordered on average. Production shows were good and so was anything the cruise director's staff put on. Comedians weren't that good, nor the jugglers. There were some sour chamber music played often in the Piazza, and also a hula hooper and a Chinese balance spinner. Ho hum. The lounge acts were good, however.
Ports were awesome-- just never enough time in them. We had some great days in Greenock Scotland, (super tour of Loch Loman and a Wool area) Reykjavik Iceland (went to Blue Lagoon and was disappointed and a wonderful day in More Greenland with natives doing music and so friendly This itinerary is delightful.
Internet sucked on the ship. What a waste!
Embarkation and Disembarkation were well organized and easy to follow. Compliments to Princess on that. Less

Cabin review: BGR501
R501-- although across from crew area and noisy--it was so convenient to the swimming pool -- walk up one flight and also the elevators were nearby so walk to elevators and go down quickly. We liked it and would recommend for folks with a cane who can do stairs as you quickly get to pools and not far to buffet through pool.
Port and Shore Excursions
Ship had free shuttle buses to town !!!! Neato. I did hop off hop on bus and that was wonderful as you get a great tour of the entire city and then can go back to places you want to know more about
Lovely place-- did a ship's tour of many places and got a good overview of the town
