Emerald Princess Cruise Review by axlrose
- Sail Date: April 2013
- Destination: Eastern Caribbean
The good: For the most part, the staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. Things like walking into the dining room...everyone welcomed us like we were royalty. The food in the dining room was very good. Our waiters bent over backwards for us. People raved about the buffet at the Horizon, but I was not impressed. It doesn't help that I do not like buffets (especially on cruise ships were illnesses can be a problem.) We ate at the Crown Grill on the last night and it is worth the $25 bucks. I found the entertainment to be,well,very entertaining. The comedy shows were some of the best I have seen. Music and dance entertainers were very good.
The ports we visited were absolutely beautiful. We did not spend a fortune on excursions and they were wonderful. If you are interested in buying jewelry on the islands, I highly recommend going to the shopping seminar hosted by Marty Frost on the first full sea day. He is a wealth of information.
Overall, a wonderful cruise!
