Don't Know About Everyone Else, but I had a Blast

Review for Emerald Princess to Panama Canal & Central America

First Time Cruiser

Age 20s

This cruise was a family one over the holidays to mark the Panama Canal transit off my Grandmother's bucket list. We traveled in a party of eight with my mom, grandmother, aunt, uncle, cousin, brother, and sister-in-law. I consider this to be my first cruise since the last one I was on I was 18 months old. There were a few hiccups along the way but overall I had an absolute blast. The ...

My wife and I have multiple things to celebrate (35th anniversary, both healthy after medical scares, etc...) and decided that a two week cruise through the Panama Canal was just the ticket. We enjoyed everything about the cruise. Both embarkation and disembarkation went smoothly and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Our last 2 cruises were on RCL and the staff on those ships treated ...

We wanted to experience the Panama Canal and go somewhere warm in January so we booked this cruise and had a fabulous time. We arrived in sunny Fort Lauderdale and stayed at the Marriott North for a couple of days Pre-Cruise. It is a nice Marriott and a good price since it isn’t on the beach. We took Uber to the port and it was very easy. We arrived at 11:30 and we were boarding soon after. ...

We love sailing with Princess and enjoy the traditional atmosphere and older crowd. This cruise was great except for a few issues... Embarkation was bad from the start due to customs issues and computer problems. But I think it was just a fluke, It took several hours even for priority boarding ...They gave us free drinks on board with a nice apology for the delays. We were a party of three ...

The Emerald Princess is a lovely ship. Not the newest ship or the biggest ship and has some needed upgrades/updates that are scheduled. Medallion Net etc. but it is a lovely ship. We sailed transatlantic from Ft. Lauderdale to Rome. 22 days and enjoyed every one of them. Great weather helped. Friendly passengers who are like minded were lots of fun but the best part of the experience was the ...

Chose this cruise because it was later in the spring, have cruised to the Baltic five times already, and cruised the TA on the Emerald Princess its inaugeral year. Our first surprise was a five category upgrade. Embarkation was a breeze with our luggage delivered before dinner. Pizza for lunch did not disapoint. DaVinci main dining room was great our waiter and assistant waiter were ...

This was our third cruise on Princess. We wanted the experience of a Trans-Atlantic crossing and my husband had always wanted to visit Omaha Beach to see where the troops landed during the Normandy invasion of World War II. This cruise offered a shore excursion which went to the beach, cemetery, and museum. It was the perfect cruise. While I had concerns about rough waters, I was pleasantly ...

Almost Seabourn Quality at Princess Prices (And That's a Very Good Thing)

We've sailed on a number of cruise lines, from Norwegian to Seabourn and Princess is the best in our book on the basis of quality and value. (Nothing can beat Seabourn, but the cost such that we can't make it a consistent way of life.) All factors taken together -- quality of ship, food, entertainment, cost of extras and service -- Princess truly delivers and the 14 Transatlantic turned out to ...

I am new to princess cruises, and they made a good 1st impression as far as the ship, crew, food and itinerary. The only complaint i had was embarkation at fort lauderdale port. First, boarding was running late, apparently because it took them too long to get everyone off the previous sailing. I say start charging passengers $100 for every 15 minutes they're late disembarking & that'll get them ...
