Just a quickie for British cruisers joining the ship this summer. They don't have any Marmite on board, so bring your own to avoid disappointment. It has been available on my three previous cruises aboard, but I got caught out this ... Read more

This cruise, aboard Royal Princess, is certainly one that the cruise line can boast: a ship beautifully appointed and maintained; a staff worthy of recognition; fascinating ports and professionally escorted excursions! With 23 cruises ... Read more

Chose this cruise as part of our European holiday just myself and my husband. Whilst the ship is beautiful in decor and very bling it was extremely disappointing. The entertainment was boring and terrible and the food was just as ... Read more

Captain Rick was excellent. We got news of trouble in Istanbul but he monitored it and determined cruisers would be safe. Glad I got to see the Hagia Sophia. And again strong winds so we missed Valletta. But Ercolano in Naples (second time ... Read more

4th cruise with Princess. We have had good experiences in the past with Princess, but this one had a problem with the food quality. Essentially in the Horizon Court the food was often cold, over cooked and lacking in presentation. The ... Read more

Great cruise for me, my husband, his sister, and my aunt. Cabin--Stateroom was very nice, with a a great bed and several dual US/European outlets. We booked R525, 529, and 533 so we could connect balconies. Worked great...narrow, ... Read more

Wonderful, although port intensive cruise. Ship was beautiful, clean and service was amazing. There is plenty of things to do, and lots of ship to explore, but it was also easy to find a couple of favorite places. The ship is large ... Read more

Selected ship because we wanted to begin in Rome allowing us a few days in Rome prior to embarkation. Use Princess Air (Delta) and had no issues. Tickets assigned in enough time to get comfort seats. No issues. Embarkation and ... Read more

This was our fourth transatlantic, our 20th cruise on the Princess Line and the third on the Island. During this 31 day repositioning we found the Island clean, though a little dated, with excellent always-with-a-smile service and the ... Read more

We were a group of eight cruise age people, meaning seniors, ranging from 72 to 75, one in wheelchair and one mobility challenged using a walker. The draw of this cruise was the itinerary, which turned out to be more challenging than ... Read more

This was our 23rd cruise with Princess. Embarkation was in Rome for a 7 day Med. cruise followed by a fourteen day transatlantic(our first) leaving from Barcelona. We were concerned after reading reviews which were not too positive. We ... Read more

Cabin: Our steward had 19 cabins in his responsibility, by himself without any assistant, so the cleanliness of our cabin (R725 – Deck 14) was pretty much elementary. The toilet disinfection was completely doubtful and toiletries ... Read more

We have sailed on the Emerald Princess several times. So this review will not give you ship details per say. The Emerald Princess is a neat, tidy ship with good venues, satisfactory food and happy staff and service personnel. What I would ... Read more

Embarkation was a bit fraught as the staff ignored any priority stickers and still sent you to the long line instead of the correct one. Ignored her and went to Priority everything went well. Nice room - poor steward She was almost ... Read more

We enjoyed our cruise. The staff couldn't have been more helpful, the food was tasty and varied, the cabin comfortable and the tours informative. We didn't use the cabin entertainment system as we found it too hard to follow if trying to ... Read more

Like many cruisers before me, I must report that the Emerald Princess Cruise Ship is the poster child of mediocrity and the definition of average. The food is bland and this is the first cruise that I have walked away from unable to talk ... Read more

The Emerald Princess is a very nice cruise ship. Our stateroom (B-319) was clean and cozy and the balcony provided us with time to relax and watch the sun rise and set as we entered and left port. The TV programing was above average and ... Read more
