Don’t take short cruises

Emerald Princess Cruise Review by platinumdancer

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Nov 2018
  • Destination: Pacific Coastal
  • Cabin Type: Interior

Decided to take two back to back short cruises to help get to Elite but never again. Dining time was move up to 5:15pm but the doors were locked so no one could enter until that time. This resulted in a line that extended all the way into the casino every night. By the time everyone was seated we didn’t get our appetizers until 5:55! Several times we had to skip dessert to make it to a show. Next, even though Princess has rules, there were so many children under 8yrs old unaccompanied in every hot tub that adults could not get in. Many times there were young parents with their infant toddlers in diapers in the hot tubs. Also, on crowded dance floors in bars there were young children. An accident waiting to happen. When doing back to back cruises, passengers have to depart, wait in long lines some outside even when raining to go through customs. Even the passengers who were already through customs were forced to wait until everyone had been cleared. This took over an hour. Need better procedure!
