Additional details

Sail Date: Jan 2020
Cabin: Window Suite

After nearly twenty cruises with Royal Caribbean / Celebrity, we booked a Panama Canal cruise on Emerald Princess leaving on 29 February 2020. Having never sailed with Princess before, we decided to do a test drive by booking Golden Princess for a 5 day cruise departing Adelaide on 25 January, visiting Kangaroo Island, Port Lincoln and Phillip Island before disembarking in Melbourne.

Our assessment - Average. I am. hoping for better from Emerald Princess.

How did we reach that assessment:

Cabin Review

Window Suite

F303 is large but without external ventilation which makes it quite stuffy - especially as in our c are when the air conditioning is not working properly.

Port Reviews

Kangaroo Island

Stuck between a rock and hard place here - the shore excursions are over priced but there is nothing to do independently

Port Lincoln

Worth a walk around
