Trip Details
  • Sail Date: May 2019
  • Destination: Transatlantic
  • Cabin Type: Balcony

Chose this cruise because it was later in the spring, have cruised to the Baltic five times already, and cruised the TA on the Emerald Princess its inaugeral year.

Our first surprise was a five category upgrade. Embarkation was a breeze with our luggage delivered before dinner. Pizza for lunch did not disapoint. DaVinci main dining room was great our waiter and assistant waiter were professional and and lots of fun. The entertainment was high class as always with a very funny Cruise Director.

Activities were so numerous, one could not attend them all.

The complimentary Sauna was great.

The new Salty Dog grill Lido deck has an improved menu. The Fresh Market buffet is remodeled with a larger selection. The BBQ and Seafood restaurants are an improvement along with Share, Crown Grill, and Salty Dog pub.

I did not use the Excursion desk. Disembarkation was very smooth.

Thank you Emerald Princess for a very enjoyable TA.

Cabin Review

Cabin B2 C519

Cabin was very comfortable. The new beds and bedding are an 100% improvement. The balcony was large enough for two chairs and foot stools for relaxing. The flatscreen tv was great but programing could be upgraded to the Royal class ships.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews


Have been there before, is a wonderful city to visit.


Large shopping mall and waterfront with many cafe’s.

Florence (Livorno)

Took a private excursion I ordered prior to the cruise. Went to Florence for a guided tour of Florence then to Piiza to see the tower. A great port.

Madeira (Funchal)

I had a cold and did not go ashore. Have been here before and is a good port.
