Princess? What's the opposite of Princess?

As others have noted, Princess was tauted as one of the best cruises/cruiselines but we found it severely lacking. Again as Doxiesmom said about getting lost, we did as well numerous times but somehow always seemed ...

Our First Cruise

This was our first cruise. We had a mini-suite--the bedding was extremely comfortable and our Attendant Alex was perfect. Lots to do, we missed most of the shows. The comedian on the last night was great, the ...

Hi all Unlike many other reviews, we found the Emerald Princess to be just about perfect. Oh sure, there are a few areas that show some wear, and a few employees that don't smile as much as others, but quite ...
