I would think about this...

|

This was my longest ever cruise, at 15 nights aboard the Emerald Princess. I got to be reacquainted with the good, so-so, and bad in the 2+ weeks. Embarkation was a nightmare. The inbound arrival was 5 hours late ...

Emerald Princess is a Good Ship With a Great Crew

We went on this cruise because it was a good value. 29 days with prepaid gratuities and $1000 onboard credit in a balcony for around $4000 each. It sailed from Barcelona to Los Angeles (home) through the Panama ...

Nice cruise but diminished service

Had been on Royal Princess five years ago and it was wonderful. Also, Princess Cruises seems to be the only cruise line with self-service laundry on each deck. -Check-in at Port Everglades was chaotic. Different ...

Yeah, okay, let's try looking for a cruise............

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 ...

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 ...

First time cruise

Friends arranged cruise as a taster for us. We sailed from L.A to Vancouver. Embarkation simple, obviously very busy but smooth enough. One of female port staff was incredibly unfriendly and snarled at people but ...

Rough seas, but a nice trip!

Embarkation out of LA was slow with long lines, but self disembarkation in Vancouver was smooth and quick. The ship was in good condition with a very comfortable stateroom. There were certainly things on the ship ...

Since this is our first cruise, we wanted to "test the waters" with a short, inexpensive re-positioning cruise. The emerald princess has definitely exceeded my expectations! Honestly, I was a little concerned when I ...

First repositioning cruise, definitely will do another.

We had been living in in Chile for about 7 weeks and found this cruise. Actually cheaper than flying (before on-board stuff). Great leisurely way to get back to the states. Since we had been in Chile and have ...
