Overall, the ship was amazing. The dining was a WOW!! Although the entertainment was average, with only 4 or 5 musicals, the ship still kept our family of 4 busy throughout the whole day. The sporting and fitness facilities on the ship ... Read more

Good itinerary visiting 6 south Pacific islands. 2 days at sea followed by an island a day for 4 consecutive days - that's hard going! To get the most from this cruise you must enjoy swimming, snorkeling, warm humid days and remote islands ... Read more

No atmosphere. Crew great. Food options buffet limited, some dining times only one section open in buffet. Outdoor eateries great but some improvement could made for Australian taste in Trident Grill (sliced beetroot instead of cubed) ... Read more

The Emerald Princess is a sister ship of the Ruby and Crown Princess on which we sailed before. Hence we felt immediately at home after a smooth embarkation in Sydney. We especially like the coffee corner “International ... Read more

This was our third cruise on Emerald Princess this year and we were surprised how much everything had improved on this latest cruise from Singapore to Sydney. The majority of those on board had joined in Southampton for the cruise to ... Read more

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 ... Read more

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 ... Read more

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 ... Read more
