First time sailing with princess after sailing with carnival in the past on several cruises. Was very impressed with the condition of the ship, attitude of the crew, and food compared to carnival. Ship seemed less packed with passengers than the carnival cruises and crowd probably were in mid 40's and older (I'm mid 50 so better fit with music, waits at the bar, etc). Still plenty of night life ...

The initial trip by cab into the cruise port was long and congested. Don't think that's Princess' fault but they ought to look at that as other lines don't have huge lines for cabs or cars to drop off. Once out of the cab the staff that greets you (and I use that term lightly) did not direct anyone. You just followed the crowd and hoped it was going to the right ship. I kid you not! The ...

This was our 6th Christmas cruise and 5th on the Emerald. We arrived in Port Everglades around noon and were on-board at 12:30 (we have priority Elite boarding). No issues there. We had an obstructed view cabin on the Emerald (8) deck. Our cabin steward did a fine job keeping our cabin clean. We did not have any special requests this time. We cruise at this time of year mainly to relax, read, ...

We were excited about taking a Christmas Cruise, believing that it would be special. However, in our opinion, it fell far short of anything special. Christmas Day at sea was incredibly flat and we truly were disappointing. There were four of us travelling together and our ages varied from 37 to 71 and although we enjoyed our trip, we all felt it wasn't as exciting as we had envisions. We took an ...

The Emerald Princess was our home for 20 days over Christmas and New Year's as we did Southern Caribbean and then Eastern Caribbean cruises back to back. Our family of four thoroughly loved this escape from reality; it really was a fabulous family vacation. We are in our late forties and our children are ages 12 and 16. My husband and I stayed in a verandah room while our children stayed in an ...

This was our 22nd cruise, 10th with Princess, and the 4th time on the Emerald. We cruised this ship last April, over Easter with several of the same couples we cruised with last year. Embarkation..even though the port was under construction and the normal pier for this ship was closed.. the process was smooth and easy...on the ship in no time...Cabin was ready when we got on board..dropped off ...

We had a very relaing and enjoyble cruise this month on the Emerald. The staff in all categories were great. The cabin location on the AFT was not ideal, because of the vibrations and the noises....great view from the back, and the balconies are large, but you give up the quiet sailing in that area..unfortunatley. They need new matresses and linens are not great...especially the ...

Emerald Princess cruise March 7th-17th. Southern Caribbean route. We are from South Carolina so rather than deal with the airlines we decided to leisurely drive down to Fort Lauderdale. Our first stop was in Cape Canaveral at the Radisson Resort At The Port. If you ever decide to sail out of Port Canaveral this is an awesome hotel to stay at. For $160 we stayed in a suite with king sized ...

We flew on Southwest from Vegas the day before where we met up with my sister and nepew. We had a nice flight, on time where they met us and off to spend the night at the Ramada Inn (cruise port). Turns out several of the nice people staying there would also be fellow passengers also on the Emerald Princess. We had a tasty fresh mexican dinner that night, and visit with our nephew before our ...
