Embarkation Arrived 09.30 at the mayflower terminal due to late arrival of the emerald luggage drop was a bit delayed We managed to do our luggGe drop approx 10.15 and then checked in 10.30 very slick and we boarded around 11.30 Cabin B748 at the rear of the ship on the corner large balcony, room was ready and luggage arrived by 12.30 Beds and pillows were excellent as good as I have at home and I invest in my bed and pillows Wardrobe space is plenty big enough and extra hangers available on request Emerald was clean and in good order absolutely no complaints from me Soda package. We bought 2 would not buy it again can only be used on the certain non alcoholic drinks IE fountain sodas which I don't like juices not fresh ones so in future we would just pay as u go Coffee card. Good value however we bought 2 and only used 1 note to self only buy one at a time Wine package. Bought 7 bottles for $169 good value if you like wine Dinning experience. We ate in the dining room ( fixed ) and international cafe both excellent Shows. Some good some not so good depends on your taste Staff. No issues we were treated well Sanctuary. We used this on 4 occasions and really enjoyed it would consider an inside stateroom and pay for sanctuary Overall this was an excellent cruise and emerald was a great vessel, the only negative I have is the inflated prices of the spa and hair treatments, I am convinced if the prices were lower more people would use the services Disembarkation An absolute breeze, we live 300 miles from the port and we were home for 13.30 pm
