The port of Houston was the best check in we have ever had. We have sailed on the Emerald 3 times and the ship is as beautiful as it was when it was new. We went to the Crown Grill the first night and we couldn't have had a better meal. We had early seating in the dining room and the food was not excellent however it was very good and there was something for every appetite. The service was excellent! I was glad Princess had movies in the theater in the afternoon however it would have been nice to have had an enrichment speaker. We were never at a loss for something to do. The International Cafe on deck 5 was fabulous. They had the best salads, sandwiches, and deserts. That is something not to miss! As for the ports,,,,, we have been to them many times and this time we enjoyed just staying on the ship. We had easy walk off with your luggage and it was indeed easy. Disembarkation was a breeze. All in all we had a great cruise and we will certainly cruise with princess again

Great cruise

Cabin Review

Cabin R415
The suite was very nice and roomy, The beds were very comfortable. Sometimes we heard the moving of chairs above us on the pool deck however it did not bother us. The room attendant was not the best we have ever had however he met our needs. The room was always made up and clean. He just was not very friendly. There was one problem,,,, there was no cold water in the shower and the hot was so hot you could not shower. We called guest services and they sent someone to fix it in about 2 hours. it worked for a day then the same thing happened again. This went on all through out the cruise. We ordered in-room movies and it was nice to have 2 TV's. The balcony was totally covered unlike the ones on lower decks. That was nice since it rained a lot of the time. I would stay in the same room again. it was wonderful!
