Ok I read all the reviews, I really wanted to see Aruba and since most lines don't sail there I was willing to over look any negative comments by saying you cant please everyone and by owning an insurance agency I realize that some people are impossible to please . I have sailed Carnival twice Rcl twice Msc once , and I've always wanted to try Princess.(love boat and all) I would have given ...

This was my 3rd cruise on Princess, and the first on Emerald. I understand that the ship just came out of dry dock, but I couldn't really figure out what had been updated other than the Effy jewelry boutique that took up a large amount of the shopping area. I'm not sure why Princess cruises made the decision to give so much real estate to such an expensive jewelry store. The pieces are terribly ...

We sailed EMERALD PRINCESS December 19-27, 2015, in Caribe 742 to Aruba, Curacao and Bonaire. Caribe 742 is the last stateroom on the port side. The balcony is partially covered and is slightly wider than all the other port-side cabins due to the ship’s design at the back. We’ve cruised during Thanksgiving and New Year’s, but this was our first Christmas cruise. Prior to booking, we read about ...

We loved the ship from the moment we stepped aboard. It had a warm, friendly feel to it, in spite of carrying over 3,000 passengers. Food: Breakfast was self-service and there was plenty to choose from - fresh fruit, cheese and smoked salmon to bacon and eggs, fluffy American pancakes and even rice pudding. Lunch was also self-service and there was always an interesting variety as well as the ...

We had never been on a cruise before. This was a good one to start with. 3 days at sea and 5 ports. It was a mostly older crowd. The staff was lovely and so was the weather! Having never cruised before, I have nothing to compare it to. However, my only complaint would be the food. While there is quantity (you can as eat as much as you want, whenever you want) there is very little quality. If your ...

Pre-Cruise My wif and I flew into Ft. Lauderdale late the night before the cruise. Stayed at the Hampton Inn Ft Lauderdale Airport North Cruise Port. Free shuttle to hotel from airport and shuttle for a nominal fee to the port. This hotel is in a convenient location to the airport and cruise port with a strip mall with department stores, liquor store, and restaurants right next door. Management ...

Wonderful cruise! We arrived a day early and enjoyed our stay at the Embassy Suites, starting with a shuttle ride from the airport, then free drinks and hors d'oeuvres at the hotel for Happy Hour. We took a hotel shuttle for the short ride to Port Everglades and had a very quick and easy embarkation. We are platinum status with Princess, so got to appreciate the expedited line. Our Riviera deck ...

I just returned from my 10 day escape from the horrible winter we have had in the Great Lakes. This was my 4th Princess cruise and my favorite itineray and ship. The piazza is organized in a way that it feels wider and easy to navigate. Food - was good - the best in Sabatinnis. I was at 6pm Boticelli for 9 of the 10 nights and Sabatinnis one night. This ship has the perfect location for the ...

All I can really say is that we were very disappointed in this cruise. Embarktion went smooth and the staff were very accommodating. Yes this ship was beautiful. The ports were great. service was awesome. we had a inside cabin at the front of ship and it was nice and quiet and for a inside room was extremely comfortable. We had assigned first seating for dinner. menu was a bust in our opinion. ...
