We combined our March 18, 2017, New Zealand cruise with the Emerald Princess’ March 7 New Caledonia & Vanuatu cruise I have written a separate review for that cruise and our 4-night pre-cruise stay in Adelaide, Australia (www.cruisecritic.com/memberreviews/memberreview.cfm?EntryID=574153). In 2012, we spent five days in the Sydney, Australia, area before boarding the Diamond Princess for a ...

We chose to fly to Sydney from Melbourne the day before embarkation so we wouldn't be rushed and would begin our holiday in a relaxed way. We stayed at the Grace Hotel which we really enjoyed and met our daughter (who lives in Sydney) and enjoyed dinner at Jamie's Italian which was a perfect choice. We took a taxi the following morning to Circular Quay and had a lovely time wandering around ...

This review includes information on both our March 7, 2017, New Caledonia & Vanuatu cruise and on our 4-night pre-cruise stay in Adelaide, Australia. The cruise portion of this trip gave us the opportunity to visit five new ports and dive at several outstanding dive sites. The land portion allowed us to tour three of Australia’s premier wine regions. We combined this cruise with the Emerald ...

I chose this cruise because I had not been to the north of Vanuatu befor. The ship appealed to me due to size and layout. As soon as you board the feeling of being welcome was there. The atmosphere was so warm and inviting. There were no problems boarding or finding our cabin, our luggage almost beat us to the room. We were pleasantly surprised at the cabin size as we had been disappointed with ...

I couldn't find any fault with this cruise. I overnighted at the Mercure Hotel in Auckland and boarded the Emerald Princess the following morning. There were no problems and I loved my outside stateroom on deck 5, near the art gallery - a perfect position for all activities. The cabin was as expected, with great mattress/pillows giving me a good night's sleep. However, I wish they'd replace the ...

Going to New Zealand and Australia was a big "bucket list" thing. The Princess cruise/land tour was awesome. We booked an inside cabin since we had mostly port days and spent the day at the Sanctuary during the Fiordland cruising. It more than met our expectations. We used Princess excursions because we have found that they have already screened their vendors for the most reliable and knowledgable ...

I have just completed back to back cruises on the emerald princess which by far were the best cruises we have done .they were cruise 16 and 17 for us so we are not newbies to cruising and have sampled many different cruise lines and ships.Ithink the thing that pleased us the most about emerald was its layout. The size of the ship is perfect for the amount of passengers without the long lines we ...

Great ship. Fantastic food, the buffet was different every day, which was a nice change. Food in restaurant was first class. We got room service a few days for breakfast. It was delivered promptly & was basic but adequate if you want a light breakfast. There are lots of areas to go dancing, &'he music was great, except for the recorded ballroom music....it was boring & sounded like the music ...

From go to whoa this was a once in a lifetime cruise! Firstly, we got this cruise at a ridiculously priced promotional fare which also included a generous OBC. Secondly, we were able to travel to a place (New Zealand) we had both visited independently in our single days, and had hoped to get back to together. And, finally, to be able to do that on a cruise, which would be hard to equal, was as ...
