Nice but not for us.

In response to review, CrusinTim says ...

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.

There had to be an explanation. Sailed on Princess for years, never heard of a Captain just canceling a port willy-nilly. Even if there was a legitimate reason for missing the port I never heard of situation either where the Captain and or other officers didn't bend over backward explaining, apologizing and adjusting the days events calendar to compensate.

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.
