Cabin (balcony A437) too small for 3 people and feel like being fleeced on board

Cabin A437. Far too small for two adults and one child; 3rd bed is lowered by steward each evening and is immediately over the main bed. It is unsettling for the sleepers who may as well be in a small bunk bed! ...

A great cruise marred by poor behaviour!

We chose this cruise as we wished to go from the UK rather than fly and we had cruised with Princess twice in the past. Emerald Princess and P&O's Ventura are identical ships built in the same shipyard. I looked to ...

The Glorious Baltic

Had a fabulous cruise to the Baltic. All ports of call were excellent. The standard of service was great. And the staff went well beyond the call of duty to ensure you had a great cruise. The food on board was ...

We chose this Scandinavian cruise as it is a part of the world I have always wanted to visit, and Emerald Princess happened to be there. We visited Zeebrugge, Copenhagen and Oslo, and had a visit to Helsinborg in ...

Short itinerary and date was ideal - especially as we went as far South as Lisbon. Travelled down a couple of days in advance just to elongate the holiday, stayed near Romsey at the Potter Heron Hotel - very ...
