The Emerald was a good ship and had a great selection of ports. However, the food quality seemed to be off on this ship compared with the rest of the fleet. If you are looking for good food, this is not the ship for you! The general staff were very good with the exception of the front desk personnel. If you have an issue, be prepared if you speak English they may not understand you. For the price of the cruise, the trip was great. There were plenty of chairs available on the deck for sun lounging. Entertainment was good and had a nice verity of shows. The Gastropub was excellent, don't waste your money on Share by Chris Stone, selection not very good. As a premium class guest with Princess, embarkation and disembarkation was great with little or no time spent on the process. Some of the ports (Malta) the ship could have spent more time at rather than the Greek ports.
The room was adequate but the bunk bed comfort was sub par.
If you are their on a Sunday don't waste your time getting off the boat, not much open except for the restraunts.
Great stop at the port. Malta was very interesting to visit.
We embarked at this port
City was easy to walk, however 4 boats in and it was wall to wall people.
Rather than take the 14.95 bus transportation offered by Princess, take the local bus out side of port gates for 2 euros
Walked around port. Shopping available locally.
Went to airport
