The repositioning cruise was chosen because it seemed to be well priced and was a nice way of returning to Australia. The ports were an annoying interlude between the sea days. No bridge Director on board yet lots of sea days. Sorry Princess now sailing on Cunard. On the previous leg the Cruise Director told the bridge Director they could take all the equipment if they wanted as they were ...

My wife and I chose this cruise due to the price, the duration and the departure date. Our cruise was for 30 days sailing from Southampton at the end of September, so we avoided some of the autumn at home in the UK. We considered the longer cruise all the way to Australia but given that this was our first long cruise we decided that it was too long. Having sailed on the Emerald Princess before ...

Great itinerary. Lovely ship. Good food. Enjoyed everything about it. We enjoyed the cruise, and the days just whizzed by. We were very sorry to get off the ship. The dining room was especially fun, and Peter our speedo wearing waiter from Hungary made the experience. Enjoyed the pools, the weather, and the trivia. Having a balcony was very nice, and we enjoyed sitting outside ...

We chose this cruise for it's length (30 days) and ports of call. Princess does deliver on quality every time. It's not the most luxurious ship out there and the cuisine isn't outstanding but overall service is very good. The cabins are roomy and the beds large and comfortable with quality bedding. Dining is good. Unfortunately for me, I had to say no to all desserts due to my lactose ...

Although we were on the 30 day portion of this cruise there were a number of disorganized or poorly administered issues that prevented this from being a home-run. Most notably among the administration issues was the India visa fiasco. We booked months before we left home and were told we would not be able to board in Southhampton if we did not have all necessary travel documents including the ...

Decided on doing this cruise as relations were making their way back to Australia after spending 3 weeks with us in Wales. This was our first time with Princess and will certainly cruise with them again . As I was travelling solo and had to pay the dreaded double cost I chose a inside cabin , this was mid ship on Baja deck B411 ,cabin very spacious,loved the open wardrobe space making the ...

We chose this cruise because we wanted to sail the Suez Canal. We boarded the Emerald Princess in Southampton and we had a smooth check in. We had our Indian Visas and so this did not hold us up at all. The ships crew were fantastic, greeting us with a smile and hello wherever we were. We have sailed on this ship before so we knew our way around. After unpacking, lunch and the customary lifeboat ...

This cruise departed Southampton on my birthday, and arrived in Melbourne Australia on my wife's birthday. Good signs (or a good excuse!). The Emerald Princess layout was very familiar, having sailed on her sister ships. We had not had a holiday for almost 3 years due to business commitments, so we were really looking forward to the long break, and many days at sea. The worst aspect of this ...

We had a fabulous 30 day cruise from Southampton, England through the Suez Canal until we reached Singapore. Very interesting ports of call including Dubai, Aqaba (Jordan), Cochin (India), Phuket, not to mention Italy and Sicily. Princess did a great job managing a very full ship of passengers. The food was very tasty at every venue, the service was great, and the lecturers on board were so ...

It would take us some hours to list all the issues (from a customer’s viewpoint) that need immediate addressing by Princess, as a result of our experiences during the 48 day Southampton to Sydney cruise on the Emerald Princess, but here are just a few to start with, just off the top of our head: UPGRADING TO MINI SUITE: When we originally booked the cruise, we wanted a mini-suite but were ...
