Just so you know, the Captain does not just "Decide" to skip a port as the fee's & taxes charged to the cruise line are already paid for the docking there. There had to be a reason for skipping the stop such as weather, rough seas or a medical emergency. Also, check your account statement beginning with the day after the missed stop. I am sure you will find a credit for the port fees & taxes. Princess cruise line is not a Disney or Carnival type of genre when it comes to entertaining kids. Princess is geared more towards the adult passengers.

I found the Emerald to be a totally relaxing cruise - not many brats (regardless of age, 3-103), a good mix of ages from kids to adults. It didn't have the high energy of Carnival, but rather a more subdued type of sit back, have a drink/snack, and enjoy the show.
Thanks for the review. I enjoyed my time on the Emerald. I agree with Mr Kennicot's statement.
The lack of substantiating comments for these ratings leaves me wondering. Can't count this review in my considering future cruises as a result.
