  3. Emerald Princess
State room was a good size as was the balcony. Comfortable accommodation. Antiquated and annoying television system; much better on the Sun Princess. Horizon Court food reasonable but for anyone with allergies, such as my wife, the desserts were out of bounds because of the nuts that adorned them. We complained a few times that some desserts should be provided without nuts on or in them, but to no avail. Hygiene in the self serve area could have been better. Checks were made that people entering the area sanitized their hands, but there were a few passengers that felt the need to eat food whilst they were selecting the various items, thereby risking passing any germs/bugs that they had onto the utensils used to dispense the food (mouth to hand to food). The enrichment lecturer was very knowledgeable but concentrated far too much on details of the flags, coins, etc., of the islands visited rather than on more generalized information.
