Sail Date: Nov 2021

Chose for several reasons. (1) First day at Sea was our 50th anniversary. (2) 3 ports we had not been to out of 11 cruises. (3) We had never cruised with Princess before.

One of if not the best cruises we've been on. Inside cabin...seemed larger than others we've had. Ship was beautiful and easy to get around on. The entertainment was excellent!! The staff in every department was outstanding in customer service. The medallion app was great for ease of use...scheduling dinners, event schedules, locking and unlocking cabin. Only slight downfall was the buffett food. We're use to cruise ship buffet, but this was a bit below normal standard. Not a deal breaker though. We will definitely cruise with Princess again and also highly recommend the Emerald Princess. Book it.. you won't regret it. As I said earlier, the entertainment, the staff, the cabin were all out standing and deserve 5+ stars.

Port Reviews

Cartagena (Colombia)

Did the Sea Rumba and Old city tour. Lots of fun, thoroughly enjoyed.

Colon (Cristobal)

Lake and monkey island. It was good, only downfall was 2 hours of round trip bus ride

Gondola ride through the rain forest and canal cruise. Excellent.. but we did not book through the ship. Price was aprx equal, but booking independently we avoided the long lines..only 4 on our small group


Been here several times. Took a taxi to Blue Water Beach. Nice way to spend a short port stop. 7 till 3


Taxi over to Junkanoo beach.All pleasant. Had planned on Love Beach but plans changed due to being Sunday and still some Covid residue
