Had a great time on the emerald princess, wonderful weather, great food and service. Entertainment was enjoyable. Back to back cruises, Panama Canal LOs Angeles to Fort Lauderdale, followed by a 14 days Circle the Caribbean. If you like a great evening in a fun atmosphere I suggest the Wheelhouse bar on Deck 7 next to the Princess Theater. James Naldo acoustic guitar is a great way to ...

My wife and I took the 15 night ocean to ocean Panama Canal cruise. The ship was extremely well maintained and extremely clean. The level at which the crew kept everything disinfected was amazing. Onboard we were very happy except for one show Nerdy Noah which was so bad it made you wonder if Princess actually reviewed his performance before hand. It was just terrible. We had three marvelous ...

I did this cruise once before through the Old Locks and this was even a better experience. The entire passage through the locks was narrated by an experienced commentator and was also on the TV in my room so it was easy to appreciate it. I also was happy with all the ports selected. My balcony cabin on the port side was lovely. Ports tours that I enjoyed were San Sebastian above Puerto ...

The Panama Canal was on our bucket list. Just the week before we set sail the Coronavirus scare began. We chose to go ahead with our plans and are so glad we did. There was a major computer glitch that delayed our boarding for 2-3 hours. Area was packed. No food or drink offered. Toilet facilities were out in the parking lot. Very uncomfortable. Once we boarded things went exceedingly ...

We chose this cruise for the itinerary and for our past experiences on the Emerald Princess. We love the live music and entertainment on the Emerald Princess. Princess Cruises are our favorite. We had a hiccup during embarkation, but that was put aside as the cruise got underway. I enjoyed the ports, but to be honest our best time was had on the ship. A little disappointed we were not allowed ...

I’ve always wanted to sail to the Panama Canal. What a great trip this was. Despite the worlds fears of the corona virus our crew selflessly cared for our needs, making sure the trip was a success. Even though we did not get to go through the old Locke as planned due to the Panamanian government not giving us access until to late we were still able to go through the new lockes and enjoy them from ...

My father wanted to see the Panama Canal. It was 5 adults - my father, my sister and husband, myself and husband. Our entertainment was poor. The best was the comedian next to last day. The service was horrible in internet. We talked to him. He gave us info. We tried it and it didn’t meet with our expectations and wanted to change it two hours later and were denied. The beverage service ...

After sailing to Alaska on Princess with family and friends for our 50th we knew we would sail with Princess again. We've wanted to go through the Panama Canal and one 6 of us found we could during the first two weeks of March we jumped at the chance. A computer glitch messed with what we know to be a generally efficient check in. Though, conditions were less than ideal, I applaud the ...

decided to join friends who were already booked on this cruise. Panama Canal was on our bucket list so we thought "why not" There was a technical issue on embarkation which had us feeling very relieved to be Elite status as many passengers waited several hours to get on board. As it was, we did not get our cabin key cards until almost midnight on day 1. We ended getting an excellent price on ...
