Our 12th cruise with Princess, 2nd time to Canaries and 2nd time on Emerald Princess. So the best way to do this review is a daily account: Saturday 17/08/16: Pulled up at the Mayflower Terminal a bit early, but check in still dealt with us early. As always it was smooth, seamless and efficient. Found our own way to our balcony stateroom and waited FIVE HOURS for our luggage to arrive so we ...

Age 70s

We chose this cruise mainly because it was from Southampton, in September and on Princess which we prefer. We enjoyed the cruise in the main but a couple of things we felt could have been better. Firstly could not fault the crew. They were helpful, friendly and the cabin steward was excellent. We found the ship clean, and well maintained. The public areas comfortable. The areas that we were ...

First Time Cruiser

Age 30s

This was our first cruise and we loved every second. The entire experience was amazing, and for me it was hard to find fault. I know with it being my first cruise, it could be argued that I have no other cruise lines to compare it to, but as far as holiday experiences go, I have to say it is one of the best I've had. It was completly stress free to board the ship, no queueing or waiting ...

We booked this cruise fairly close to departure and as a result only had an option for a guarantee inside cabin. As per the cabin review we would not do this again on this ship. Our stateroom attendant however was wonderful. Always friendly, helpful and efficient. Embarkation was handled very well. Probably the smoothest and easiest of any cruise so far. This was our first Princess cruise ...

Embarkation was perfect no complaints top marks. First night alarms crew called to muster station because of smoke in Engine room dealt with very well by the captain and crew couldn't have been ...

Embarkation was excellent. We were soon aboard and no huge queue for security. Cabin was as expected. Steward, Conrado, was excellent and kept it spotless. Requests were soon carried out. Muster drill was dragged out and exhausting for those who had had long journeys and couldn't find a seat. Weather was mixed and seas a bit choppy round the islands. We were fixed dinner, early seating. ...

We chose this cruise as we had never been to The Canaries. Ship was very busy and like others on this cruise we could not get a seat in International cafe or crooners bar and had great difficulty getting a seat in Horizon at breakfast and lunch. Our biggest complaint are the Tips. We paid the tips but feel cheated as it seems that others did not. Princess should increase the price of the cruise ...

The embarkation was the best we have had. The evening meal got off to a poor start. Steak pie in a pot was on the menu, and that was all you got - no potatoes, no vegetables. Was told there were vegetables in the pot. The pastry was cut open - no vegetables to be seen. Had to ask for some. Breakfast next morning, waited over an hour to get it. Breakfast next day, waited over an hour again. ...
