February 2016 - Emerald Princess to Caribbean - Western
I've cruised on Norwegian, Carnival, Holland America, Celebrity, MSC and Royal Caribbean in the past. This is my first time with Princess cruises. It was an awesome experience. I LOVE cruising and all the cruise lines are pretty much the same as Princess except the staff on Princess went over and above to be helpful and courteous. The food was awesome, the service at my table was superior. Each night the waitress gave her recommendations and we all ordered what she recommended and were never disappointed. I bought the drink package that included virgin versions of daiquiris and pina coladas. They were super good and no one minded bringing me my "free drinks". The waiter at dinner made sure to have a diet coke for me each time my previous one was empty without me asking. I read some poor reviews on the Emerald Princess before I left and was a little concerned but I was definitely pleasantly surprised. I think I received a really good deal on the cruise because of some poor reviews. I have a feeling that these bad reviews were from people that just don't enjoy the cruising experience or the ship did a complete turnaround because of the bad reviews. Signed,
VERY HAPPY WITH MY CRUISE EXPERIENCE.
