It was a family cruise and we needed to leave July 1st. There were 10 of us in our group. We are elite members and always love cruising with Princess, however the Emerald did not half way meet our expectations. Poor dining and entertainment. Dirty underwear left under our bed and carpet really dirty, also the balcony was dirty. The comic for entertainment was excellent but the "broadway" shows were lacking, and I believe there were only two. The costumes were not very colorful, nothing great or even good. Probably the biggest disappointment was the dining room food. The lobster was small, and tasteless, with no drawn butter offered until the small lobsters were eaten. The cruise was a big disappointment and I felt badly as it was my idea to cruise with Princess. We have another Princess cruise booked and paid for this Nov. or I would cancel. One last thing, the drinks were watered down and the ship seem to be cutting back on everything.
Not cleaned good, like I said above, dirty underwear under the bed.
