We (4) just returned from a 5 night Western Caribbean cruise with port destinations of Cozumel and Costa Maya Mexico, leaving from Port Everglades Ft Lauderdale Florida.
Embarkation- was a nightmare. The line was unbelievably long, never ever seen a line like this. My husband and I are platinum members which entitles you to priority boarding. We could not find a Princesses representative until after waiting over an hour. Then there was only one checking for over 3,000 passengers which is absolutely ridiculous and unexcusable! Due to the disorganization, wew were ~ 1 hour delayed in leaving.
Emerald princess - well maintained, clean, large over 3,000 passengers.
