First time for the Emerald Princess to go though the new locks.

It left from Vancouver, so that meant less flying to or from the ship as we live in British Columbai. The Emerald has just come out of a refit that took place in Victoria. There were new carpets in the cabins and in the public areas. The Fresh World Marketplace is a makeover of the Horizon Buffet. It is beautiful. The colours and the accents and the new furniture make the area a very ...

Short 3 day cruise

This was a short 3 day cruise from LA to Vancouver. It is spring break so there were lots of young people and kids onboard, many celebrating special events like birthdays. We dined in both the Crown Grill and Share and the food was great. Service in the main dining room and the food seemed the usual Princes approach. There was concern expressed by someone that since the ship is heading to dry ...

Don’t take short cruises

Decided to take two back to back short cruises to help get to Elite but never again. Dining time was move up to 5:15pm but the doors were locked so no one could enter until that time. This resulted in a line that extended all the way into the casino every night. By the time everyone was seated we didn’t get our appetizers until 5:55! Several times we had to skip dessert to make it to a show. Next, ...

Princess dining is pretty average

We’ve been on 8 prior Princess Cruises and several cruises with other lines. We had been impressed with Princess Cruises over the other lines until our recent cruises. Particularly their dining experience had been exceptional. The main disappointment with this cruise is that they have removed all the premium dinners from the main dining room. Now if you want lobster, crab legs, or scallops, ...

Nothing special

Chose the California departure for a Thanksgiving holiday. We have previously been on Celebrity, Norwegian and Carnival. We had an obstructed view cabin which was well-laid out. We did not find the food, entertainment or service to be anywhere close to what we have had on five Norwegian cruises. Key card wouldn't work upon embarkation so one person was stuck for 30 minutes waiting for ...

You should know you will be milked for gratuity at every corner, its ludicrous. The shower is scorching hot 90% of the time. The activities are not designed for all age groups, they are either designed for kids or senior citizens. The excursion was great; however, it took up most of the time we had on the port. The port time was horrific, we arrived late and only had 1/2 on the first day and 1/2 a ...

This was our 6th cruise in the last 20 year, so we don't consider ourselves real "cruisers", but I've been a sailor for the past 30 years and have read several behind-the-scenes books about the industry. We've spent about 50 days total on a cruise ship and we do have a process when we travel this way. We have sailed the Caribbean, off the coast of Mexico, Hawaii, and the Atlantic/Mediterranean. ...

Short but good cruise

Haven't cruised for a few years so it was nice to be able to do so again. We chose a short repo cruise to LA to be followed by a few days at Disneyland. DH insisted we do carry on and I must admit I will gladly do again as boarding and leaving the ship was extremely quick. We were actually one of the first ones on and off the ship. We had cabin E209 and actually liked it a lot. Our Steward ...

Excellent West Coast Cruise

I just retired, was looking for a short cruise on the west coast to celebrate. I've only been on one cruise and that was in the early 90s. I'm so glad I found this Princess Cruise as my party was treated like royalty. Crew members were all very nice and helpful, making this celebratory cruise fun. The activities and shows onboard were fun and entertaining as well as the excursion we took in ...

Embarkation went smoothly; there was consideration for our limited mobility (we both had walkers) and did not wait in long line-ups. Our cabin was on Plaza deck and as we approached we heard a considerable level of noise in the hallway which was a mystery to us at first. The cabin was spacious and met all our needs. Accessibility aboard the ship was never a problem, except in the hallway ...
