Emerald Princess Cruise Review by koonard

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: May 2016
  • Destination: the British Isles & Western Europe
  • Cabin Type: Balcony

We had balcony cabin ... nice to have the outside space but it was dirty, Both of the chest of drawers were broken . The toilet blocked up 3 times. Cabin number was B601.

Only went to MDR once and that was enough ... there are too many passengers and not enough waiters / crew. Service was slow and food was poor. We ate up in Horizon buffet or had room service.

Entertainment was okish .. please have movies / films inside and not out in freezing cold or wet weather , ok in Carribean but not off England.

Service was ok but lacklustre.

Ports of Call we liked ., especially Guernsey and Bilbao where we enjoyed the Guggenheim Museum. We did 1 tour with ship and that was very well organised and interesting.

We are Elite but won't go again with Princess as we don't like the trend for huge ships.

Cabin Review

Cabin BA B601

Broken chest of drawers. Toilet got blocked 3 times. Balcony was dirty. Also funny sort of sheet things which were folded over the duvet and kept getting untangled ... you'd have to be there to understand. Lovely pillows and mattress.
