Not the Trip I planned or paid for

In response to review, Glenn51 says ...

Emerald has only been sailing from Houston for a couple weeks and all I am finding are negative reviews. Seems to be mostly management issues rather than problems with the ship. Maybe time for a better captain?

Did you book on the ship? If you did let us know how it went. Princess is a good cruise line. I have only taken one cruise with Princess & it went well.

We boarded in Houston for a crossing in April and the boarding process could not have been better. Got in line and within 20 minutes were in our cabin and started exploring the ship. Cruise directors were great for entertainment and only a few minor complaints for a 20 day cruise. Need more variety in the dining room and one cruise director decided rap music was appropriate for trivia with a crowd where 65 (if not higher) was the average age. Most of the shows in the Princess theatre were very good. A couple of duds but over 20 nights I'll take 18 out of 20 and be very happy.

jodster75002, thank you for posting your review but I wish it had been a better experience for you.

I can not blame the cruise line for weather but I can blame them for bad service and the food being overly salted.

As I have stated before, even good cruise lines have a bad ship or two. I have not been on Princess in about 20 years but most reviews have it as good food and a good line. 20 years ago I lost 5 pounds because the food was so bad on the Dawn Princess. Now I read that the food is supposed to be almost as good as Celebrity.

Sory for your bad trip I hope your next cruise will be better.
