Mexican Riviera on Emerald Princess
"My wife and I joined three other couples on Emerald Princess from Southern California to the Mexican Riviera the week after US Thanksgiving in 2017. For my wife and I this was our first time sailing with Princess...."Read More

Lovely except for the weather in Los Angeles, to Mexico and 2 ports when there.

To get away from winter. My wish was to have warm weather, freedom from cooking, and other household chores. To have time and areas to relax and read and enjoy the ports and sea days. The weather made that difficult as the ship was usually rocking somewhat..walking was similar to being unbalanced. In ports the excursion in Mazatlan was mediocre and in Cabo changed from original dure to weather ...

the Princess Cruise line offers a good value for the price. We like cruising in the fact we have taken over 10 cruises. The up side to the princess line that they offer cruise from the LA port which we can drive to no flying. Princess cabins are nice well laid out and the balcony is nice and big.. the staff was very friendly and accommodating. A big factor is that staff is not constantly ...

We needed one more cruise to put us into the Elite membership tier for our 30 day South American cruise February 2019, so we added a 5 day Cabo onto our existing 15 day to Hawaii. We were curious how we would like all the sea days. The ship was in fairly good shape considering its age, plenty of places to get away from everyone if you wanted. We never really felt crowded unless there was a big ...

First short cruise/3rd Princess cruise

I want to start by saying this was our 3rd Princess cruise and we have always had an excellent experience. Until now. Not sure if it was because it was a short 4 day (San Pedro to Santa Barbara to Ensenada) but it was a disappointment. We booked it last minute as we had been in Vegas to warm up and decided to spend 5 of our 10 days on the ocean instead of the rest in Begas or home in snow ...

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 to end up by all the hundreds of photos, the casino or the Lotus Spa. It was not a diabetic friendly cruise as even though we had purchased the soda package, the only diet soda ...

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 dancing was fun. Buffet was mediocre but got the job done in the mornings. Evening anytime dining was good. We paid extra for Share (Curtis Stone) and it was absolutely worth the extra ...

Invited my Sister and Brother-in-Law for their first time Princess cruise and they really enjoyed themselves, my BIL wanted a really short cruise and he got it. Our stateroom attendant was a dream come true who helped us so much with my Sister and Brother-in-Law. The stateroom was just below Lido deck so I did not have a long walk and elevator ride in the mornings when taking my Wife her first cup ...

We are platinum members of Carnival and always love our Carnival cruises. We were told to try Princess so we did this on the Emerald for a 5 day cruise. We got on ship with no problem and straight to our room. We usually get a balcony room, but as it was a short cruise decided to save a bit of money and get inside room. The room was clean, bed super comfortable and our steward kept it clean. We ...

Everyone said Princess is a grest cruise line. I was very disappointed in the food and overall experience. The comedians were the highlight of the cruise. Our cabin attendant was excellent. The Cruise Director and her staf did a good job. The dining was a big disappointment. The food was ok, but not was I was expecting. You had to wait in long lines for a burger, pizza, ice cream or ...

Background: We did a family trip (6 adults) for thanksgiving. My husband and I have only sailed previously on Disney Cruise Line to the Caribbean, so admittedly have little to offer in terms of comparison. We chose this ship/itinerary because of the length (5 nights) and sail date (over Thanksgiving). The fact that half of the group was in driving distance of LA helped us choose as well. Port: ...
