We arrived at the Southampton terminal around 12:00 and were placed in a waiting area where free cakes and coffee was available we barely had time for a drink before we were rapidly booked in. Being familiar with Emerald Princess we quickly found our cabin and were soon ensconced in restaurant having lunch. In our cabin we found that all the bedding had been upgraded with lovely new mattresses and ...

Note: this review is very much food focused! Everything about this cruise to Scandinavia was fantastic. This was not our first cruise (NCL & RCCL) but our first on Princess. Travelling with my elderly mum who has coeliac disease (needs a gluten free diet) we arrived at check in desks in Southampton approximately noon and we were on-board by 1pm. We went straight to our cabin something ...

We booked this cruise, our first Princess Cruise, mostly for its itinerary in Scandinavia, which interested us greatly. We weren't expecting a lot from the ship itself due to its negative reviews. However, we were pleasantly surprised! To begin, the ship was stunning. The piazza is gorgeous, and the public areas and lounges were very well designed to host a large number of people, as we ...

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 Sweden aborted due to bad weather. I had not heard much about Princess before, and I was nervous about travelling with an infant after reading articles on this site warning about what an ...

We chose this cruise because it included the North Cape of Norway, the northernmost tip of Europe and went to several ports we had not been to. Embarkation was excellent as was disembarkation. Minimal waiting time to get on and our cabin was ready for us immediately. Our luggage arrived very quickly. We enjoyed this cruise 100%. The staff and the ship were first rate and it feels like a very ...

We have done lots of travelling but never to Northern Europe. We have been to Scandinavia but not to some of the other ports. Since parts of Europe are getting more dangerous we decided to go while it was still reasonably safe. It was cool and rainy some days but the amazing tours and scenery made up for the weather. Would highly recommend this cruise. All the excursions we took were above ...

Chose this cruise during the Princess 5oth anniversary sale as my wife and I wanted a short break. The cruise exceeded our expectations as we found a significant all round improvement since our last cruise with Princess several years ago. Prior to the cruise we had some concerns given some of the recent adverse reviews that have been posted and now having just returned cannot believe ...

We choose this cruise as a mini-break treat for my Partner and myself, having been wheelchair bound after I suffered a broken femur in January. We are cruise addicts anyway and knew that the food, the facilities and general spoiling where just what we needed after our recent difficulties. [ I had been non-loading bearing after my accident and my poor long suffering partner had been my "legs" and ...

Second cruise with Princess and just as eventful as last year though for different reasons. Last year on Crown Princess we had a missed destination - Corfu - due to intercepting Syrian refugees who needed a doctor. This year we had 2 engine fires and to paraphrase Oscar Wilde, to have one engine fire could be regarded as a misfortune, to have two looks like carelessness! Other passengers with many ...
