Needs improvement
"Premier seating at production shows - again no information on how to get this, sounded and read like it was something we did on our app to request this, but not the case, when going to a show there was no assistance or guidance, a few of us noticed some blue seat covers at the front so went down to investigate, not sure why they thought we would want to sit so close and not even in the center but at one end?Juice bar - never actually found this, not because I didn’t look, no dining or bar staff actually knew what I meant, even showing the website it was like they were not trained on it...."Read More

Review for a Panama Canal & Central America Cruise on Emerald Princess

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

The food and service was wonderful. Panana Canal was the Panana Canal. Cartegena was lovely as was Huatulco. Punteranus not so nice. 2 things ruined this cruise for us. 3 of us got COVID 19 around day 4 or 5. There was no screening and no masking at all. What made it worse was that everything was overcrowded. Hard to get a table at the buffet. Hard to get a seat in the theater. Everyting was ...

We chose this cruise mainly because it was going through the Panama Canal which was fantastic, but unfortunately two of the original stops got cancelled, the stop in San Juan Del Sur, Nicaragua got cancelled just a short time after booking and Grand Cayman got cancelled as the swell was to bad for the tenders. Pros: All the staff were excellent The Medallion App seemed to work well The ...

Wanted full passage Panama canal cruise and Emerald Princess delivered. I found this to be a mostly wonderfully cruise with fabulous entertainment  and games galore. While it was his last assignment on Emerald, Fernando the cruise director was everywhere helping to entertaining guests with games and contests. The shows were great,, especially the premiere of ROCK OPERA. Balcony cabin on Baja 11 ...

We are Long time Holland American Cruisers that took this cruise with Princess due to the timing and destination. Room: This obstructed view is fine from the view standpoint, it is at the top of the stairs from the promenade, but that was not an issue. The first 4 rooms on this deck including this one are narrower than other rooms and also have the really annoying feature of having two ...

This has our 17th cruise (not all with Princess) so we are not new to cruise ships. This was the worst cruise of all and we will not be sailing with Princess again. Sorry Princess but your services on the cruise have ruined it for us. The first day, we went on the ship tour and went up to the Lotus Spa. I asked about using the sauna/steam room and was told by the female attendant the there would ...

The staff at dining room botecceli dining was wonderful, however I could not say the same for the staff on Divi Divi dining room, it was Christmas Day and we had an early setting and a private table, we were seated and given menus and then we waited and waited and waited, meanwhile more diners came in and got waited on before us, not acceptable. Not a quiet place on the ship to read or play games ...

Overall this was a good cruise, the ship though needing some attention is in good shape, we had no major complaints about the food which in general was good. Our room steward worked hard to keep our room clean and we had no complaints about the service. We enjoyed our trip through the Panama Canal and the stops we made during the trip. The shows in general were ok, everyone on board seemed to ...

What I loved about this cruise was that almost everybody on the ship were 55 or older. No kids and families took this two-week cruise in December. The weather was great. The ship atmosphere was relaxed. Our staff were friendly and attentive. I engaged with most people I came in contact with, asking them how many cruises they have been on, and of course where are they from. (Most everybody ...

A little about me... I got hooked on cruising in August of 2022 when I was gifted a 4 night Bahamian cruise on the Disney Wish. Disney was great, but I was looking for something more adult oriented. I chose to cruise the Celebrity Apex and inside less than a year had also cruised Celebrity Constellation and Summit. No one ship or cruise will be perfect, but I was able to easily see that ...

Recently, my wife and I took the October 28 sailing to Canada and New England on EMERALD PRINCESS. Overall, it was a very nice, relaxing trip. Here’s the skinny: Embarkation in Brooklyn. We entered the Brooklyn cruise terminal at 12:28 in the afternoon, and because we had the “Green Lane” we stepped on board the ship 12 minutes later at 12:40. Without doubt, this was the easiest and quickest ...
