We chose this cruise due to the round trip Vancouver. We live on Vancouver Island and this way do not have to deal with airports. Embarkation was seamless and we were on board in time to have lunch in main dining room. This was the largest cruise ship we had ever sailed on and would not be in a hurry to travel on a large ship again but know if we want to do this cruise again then will likely have to book on this size again. Inside cabin was clean and quiet. Food was great most nights in main dining room although was sub par on second formal night. Do not think the shows were as good as the last time we did this cruise and would like to find a bar that does not always have music playing but this seems to be the same on the other cruise lines we have sailed with. We will likely do this cruise again and have put down a future cruise deposit. Read Less

Had not cruised on Princess in several years and decided to give them another try. This was by far the worst cruise in terms of both gourmet food selection and the size of the cabin bathroom that I have ever experienced, in over thirty years of cruising on six different cruise lines. They seem to crunch 3000 passengers into tiny cabins and group rooms designed for 2000. Always a feeling of being terribly crowded with times that no tables were available for lunch buffets or in the lounges. The. balcony cabin was the smallest I have ever had with no room for a lounge chair on the balcony and truly uncomfortable levels of space for the toilet and shower in the bathroom. Food choices and quality in the main dining room were very disappointing. They had zero options during the entire cruise for any form of lobster, crab, duck, veal, or lamb dishes. Even onion soup was never offered, nor any diverse interesting food dishes offered on all other mid to high end cruises I have been on. For the same price or slightly more, You can get a tremendously better dining and cabin experience on either Holland or Celebrity. Read Less

This was a Make-Up cruise of a missed May Cruise from LA to Vancouver in May due to illness. It was also our 15th cruise as the next 4 are longer; 23 days, 15 days, 18 days, and 7 + 7 day CruiseTour to Alaska for the 7th time. This was our first Emerald cruise, and CROONERS is on the wrong side of the ship. Very Good staff, known from other ships, but the bar is small (7 seats) conpared to several other Crooners Bars. The new GastroPub was something we tried; a wonderful surprise with several items delivered that we not on the menu. We will use those again in the near future. The entertainment was marvelous. bill and Fiona of the duo were very good and Fiona has quite a wonderful range with her voice. The highlight was the Friday Night with RIC STEEL. We have seen him before on other sips but hie is ever better now, if that is possible. A Dynamic CW singer, song writer, and CMA Award Nominee. If you get a chnce to see RIC perform; DON'T MISS THE OPPORTUNITY. Read Less
