Additional details

Sail Date: Mar 2017
Cabin: 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.

Port Reviews

Napier

rained but we did a private tour of the area. We walked around the town. Very pretty town

Picton

very boring, nothing to see or do

Auckland

very expensive and everything to far away to see in a short tome

Tauranga

We did a private tour of Rotora and we were pleased we did. Half the price of the tour from the ship.
