Find here a review of our just completed Mediterranean Cruise on the Emerald Princess. It was a 12 day 10 port affair starting in Venice, visiting Piraeus / Athens, Kusadasi / Ephesus, Istanbul, Mykonos, Naples, Civitavecchia/Rome, Livorno/Pisa/Florence, Marseilles, and finishing in Barcelona. Forgive the bad composition and poor English as my hope is simply share tidbits about our experience to ...

Just back from a wonderful vacation and now trying to deal with jet lag, laundry, and the accumulation of dust while gone. Our family of four (two sons age 14 and 15) flew from Los Angeles to Venice three days in advance of our cruise. We chose to use a private water taxi since we had left Los Angles 26 hours earlier. I did not prearrange for a water taxi. Collecting our luggage was easy and we ...

We had a very enjoyable cruise on Legend of the Seas last year , so this year we joined daughter and family ( 3 children ages 6, 4 & 2.)on this cruise on the Emerald. The views in this report relate to my wife and myself as daughter has already submitted her report. We flew from Manchester on Titan Air , a Princess charter with the 200 people on board all heading for the ship. There was not as ...

Arrived in Venice, transfer was smooth, however embarked on deck 4 - when we've been before there has always been huge welcome on Piazza/Plaza deck.Disappointing. Ship was appealing and as has been previously said did not feel as large as it really is. Pools: Great layout- busy on sea days - some live music but definitely could be more!! I was told there is more in the caribbean by the cruise ...

I travelled with three friends. All of us are independently-minded and two of us suffer from ill-health and needed to take things slowly. This formed the basis for some of our choices. We travelled to Venice independently, three days early, so we could spend time looking around this wonderful city. We had booked at the Hotel Ala (Best Western), which has a great location and low prices. ...

This was our 11th cruise (many, but not all with Princess)and we feel one of our very best. We chose to stay 3 days in Venice prior to our embarkation, but made our own reservations rather than Princess' pre-package. We arrived to the ship just minutes before the 12 noon embarkation process. This was our first cruise as "Platinum" members, and it paid off. We were in the 1st group called and ...

Overall my family of 4 had a great time. The ship is absolutely beautiful and very clean. Embarkation/disembarkation were very easy and the cashless system within the ship very convenient. The automatic $10.50 tip per person per day is also convenient but it feels weird not to tip individual people for their great service (and we did find many employees that went out of their way to serve and be ...

The Emerald Princess was our second cruise and first time on Princess. We enjoyed every aspect of our trip. With this review I hope to help others with a few tips. Our trip started in Venice with no connection with Princess Cruises. Our hotel was Ca Angelic and was found on trip advisor. Highly recommended. We found embarkation onto the ship confusing due to either our travel agent or Princess not ...

My husband and I took the 12 day Grand Mediterranean cruise on the Emerald Princess leaving from Venice on June 29th. It is a gorgeous ship and the entertainment was the best we've ever seen on any cruise yet. A super hotel to stay at before the cruise for 2 days is the Antiche Figure in Venice right on the Grand Canal and not too far from the cruise terminal in Venice. You'll need to take a water ...

Let me give u a little back ground on our selves, we are in our early 30's and have never cruised before but have travelled abroad twice before. We thought we would finally try a cruise but like everyone else, we had our reservations. We were concerned about getting seasick, the food and if we would even like the ship! We decided to fly into London first and spend a week there exploring before ...
