Seven days of bliss on the Med

Emerald Princess Cruise Review by Annabelle74

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jul 2019
  • Destination: the Mediterranean
  • Cabin Type: Balcony

It seamed like an ideal way to relax after a busy work schedule and as a way to see other parts of Europe in transit to Turkey. It is a matter of choice how busy one can be on a cruise and this one did not disappoint. The sea days provided the necessary relaxation to reboot the energy for the day excursions and in preparation for the long hikes ahead. A taste of three different cultures during the shore excursions provided the enrichment and entertainment that I enjoyed. Gibraltar provided the English/Spanish history. At Marseilles, although it was disappointing that our first option was not available due to the bicycle race Avignon provided another historical visit and a glimpse at the countryside. Genoa and Livorno both gave us the opportunity to see the countryside and observe the enormous engineering feats that the Italians have accomplished with roads through hills with tunnels and viaducts. The picturesque beaches were a treat. Leaving the ship in Rome was inevitable but a place previously visited. The excursions are as described in the brochures and efficiently organised at each port along with the apparent seamless process for embarkation and disembarkation. The activities provided were a huge range and everyone should have found plenty of a high quality to meet their needs. Emerald Princess is a great ship.

Cabin Review

Cabin BD L239

Comfortable. It is pleasant to have a balcony for fresh air and to be able to enjoy the environment from ones room

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

The beauty of this ship, nominated among the top 10 cruise ships, is that you can comfortably do as much or as little as you like each day. There is a huge variety of choice and that doesnt just mean the food menus!
