Having never cruised Princess, 2 positives stood out. The technology of Medallion Class, and their check-in process. Now did the app work perfectly, 100% of the time? No. Of course not. I’ve never had a day at work where my internet was perfect, but I’m not quitting my job over it. We are also in the middle of a freaking ocean, so it’s pretty impressive to have any service at all. The food was ...

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 ...

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, ...

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 ...

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, ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

Good times on the Emerald! We were celebrating a big birthday & a wild & crazy 2nd wedding. Very good time had by all. The Skywalker lounge was a great meeting point for everyone. I found the staterooms were rather small so definitely book a mini suite with a balcony! Beds were incredibly comfortable. Service was very good, too. We had a minor issue with our bathrobes NOT being in the room ...
