Emerald Princess Cruise Review by travel1099

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Oct 2014
  • Destination: Transatlantic

Ok the cruise itinerary and the entertainment were quite good especially Mercury Rising - AKA Steve Willis - what a great tribute artist - really made the whole cruise for me they did not need to bother with anything else!

The ship to me on outer decks appeared scruffy - one ping pong table (partly broken) which was located in a dirty corner of deck 16 normally on waterlogged carpets. however, with the tournament on they had to located the one broken ping pong table to deck 15 so the wind would not blow the balls away!!! hallo Princess some of us want to do more than trivia, watch movies from the 40's or drink ourselves to oblivion.

Then there is the shuffleboard located on a corner - not so you can play back and forward oh no and do not look for a scoreboard - non existent.

Also I cannot believe a ship for over 3,000 people does not have a mini golf course - only a putting green and croquet.

We could not face the dining room so ate mostly in buffet which was ok but had a mediocre salad bar.

This is not obviously a ship to sail on more than once in my opinion -

Cabin Review

cabin insulation non existent on this ship - a relaxing voyage - no not for us with noisy neighbors day and night who could not seem to talk quietly but seemed to shout at each other.
