Emerald Princess Cruise Review by peterjohnwormald

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Mar 2017
  • Destination: Australia & New Zealand
  • Cabin Type: Balcony

This was our first cruise and we were surprised at the number of extremely elderly people on board who were are danger to themselves and other people. Many walkers, wheelchairs and motorised wheelchairs. One elderly women drove madly through people.

The Emerald princess does need some refurbish on the balconys.

We ate at the Botticelli restaurant for breakfast and dinner except when we went to Share and the Crown Grill. We ate at those restaurants 2 times each. Very good food but the watering staff need more training. Overall the crew were very good as they work very hard. The european crew were rude to the staff at times.

The shore excursions were overpriced and we booked one excursion via the internet at half the price.

We did enjoy most of the cruise as we met a British couple who we were great fun to be with.

We would not go on a cruise from Australia again.
