Was offered a deal at 1/4 of original price! Ship was fully booked. Worst Food/Service/Entertainment of any Princess cruise I have ever sailed. Ships staff were poorly trained. Ship badly needs a complete overhaul. Buffet was a mystery, only about half the dishes had signs, about 10% had the wrong signs. Some tables did not even have salt and pepper shakers. Ice machine in one side was down ...

I went on the cruise with 5 friends. Things were not up to Princess Standards. The room movie movies were all very old flicks, Nothing recent. There was no Zumba class. No instructor. They could have found a Zumba video. The entertainment except for 3 times, was horrible. At Panama getting off the ship was delayed for well over two hours. The food in the dining room was up to Princess ...

We chose Princess because we had never taken this line before and we wanted to take the family to Alaska this summer and had to check the line out. Embarkation was a couple of hours late with no explanation. Our cabin was as expected. We could have used an extra chair, but we made do. Our luggage did not make it to our cabin until after late dinner. So we had dinner in our clothes that had ...

My wife and I recently returned from a short Princess cruise out of Ft. Lauderdale. Unfortunately, this was the most unenjoyable experience that we have had while cruising with Princess, or any other line. Our disappointment started when we entered our cabin. We had never experienced a cabin with bunks on the walls. We elected to have Princess select our cabin. It was not a good fit for an older ...

First cruise with Princess after using many, many other lines. Getting on wasn't bad, but getting off was a long, waiting nightmare. Theoretically there are people who will clear away unused deck chairs, but in four/five days we never ONCE got to sit on the deck: people would come up at dawn and throw a towel across a couple chairs and then never return. There is apparently a very loose ...

Huge Plumbing Problems; 5 Day Cruise

Of all the cruise lines we’ve sailed on, we LOVE Princess the most. We’ve sailed with Princess 15 times, and this was our 3rd cruise on the Emerald Princess. Unfortunately, this cruise was nothing like we’ve ever experienced before because it has serious plumbing issues. We didn’t have hot water in neither the shower nor sink for a day and a half. Each time we ran the cold water it would run ...

We survived the cruise despite numerous plumbing and air conditioning problems, both in the staterooms and public areas. The captain delayed our leaving port for several hours because of a problem with potable water (according to his public address). Conditions went downhill from there. Passengers complained about non-working toilets or overflowing toilets; lack of hot water for some; lack of ...

Emerald Princess - Very limited entertainment for a younger crowd (we had fun twice, maybe), younger being in mid 40's and younger. We've gone on cruises before where the entertainment was phenomenal for all ages and lasted past 10:30pm. The services with the ships crew were off, off being their state of mind is not into serving guests as the other cruises we have been on. There were several of us ...
