We cruised from Houston to the western Caribbean for 7 nights, then back into Houston. We visited the NASA Space Centre in Houston, while the crew turned the Emerald Princess around for our Transatlantic Cruise. Never done a transatlantic cruise before. The cost of this repositioning cruise was very competitive, as we got to cruise the Med. as well after we sailed to Madeira.
Emerald Princess is a large but comfortable ship. It is needing some refurbishment in certain areas, but on the whole the condition of the ship/cabins etc; was good. We spent 4 weeks on her, so we had plenty of time to explore!
The food was always good, no complaints apart from one, which was dealt with swiftly and efficiently. That's not a bad score in 4 weeks!
