We have sailed on many Princess ships and the Emerald lived up to our expectations. However she does look a little tired in her decor and perhaps could do with a refit sometime soon.
The cabin was of the usual standard and kept clean and tidy by our steward Roger. We had chosen the extended balcony cabin on Caribe Deck and were very happy being able to use the extra space. We do tend to use our balconies during cruises. After all that's what you pay for. is it's worth going for the extra space if you are like us.
We had room service on numerous occasions and they always arrived o time and with the full order. It's especially nice to have breakfast on the balcony in the sunshine.
