A nice cruise overall. Not crazy about the ship design.

This was our 11th cruise. We have cruised on Celebrity, Holland America, and Carnival, as well as Princess. To us, the key criteria for a good cruise are the food, service, entertainment, and ports. We ate most ...

My family of four had a great time on the Emerald Princess from 8-15 Mar 15. Rather than go through the minutia about what was good, I thought it might be more helpful to explain where we saw some things lacking. ...

Inside Disappointment

The terminal at Houston, Tx is fairly new and very cruiser friendly. The parking lot is ample for the ships that depart from this port. The embarkation was the smoothest and quickest I have ever had on any of my ...

Go for the cruise, not for the food

We cruised from the Houston Port (an industrial no man's land) to Mahahual, Belize and Cozumel. The Emerald Princess is a fine ship, very clean and with all the usual amenities. The staff was pleasant. We enjoyed ...

Avoid the Port of Houston like the plague!!! Lemonade out of lemons...

One thing from this cruise - you can't control mother nature! The toilet in my cabin (R706) was broken the whole week - so would avoid that cabin... Embarkation: Arrive to the Port about 11 AM. Passengers were ...

Baltic Heritage - June 2014 - A very active itinerary!

You have to know that a ship will never be cleaner than when it is coming off a cruise that had a norovirus outbreak which delayed your sailing - and it was so. Check in was delayed by 2 hours, and then there was a ...
