Emerald Princess

July 2015 - 7 Night Greece & Turkey (Athens To Istanbul) Cruise on Emerald Princess

Greece, Turkey & Italy Medly Review

The ship was wonderful (steady as a rock) and the staff took good care of us, especially the cabin steward who was a jewel. The food was excellent in both the dining room and buffet. The ports of call were O.K. Had we anticipated the heat better, we would have booked this cruise in the Spring or Fall. Our bad. What we found disconcerting was the attitude of Princess, availing itself of every opportunity to separate us from our last euro. Very grasping. Indicator: their daily shipboard newsletter focused on port sites that were available on their tours, ignoring some wonderful sites (Naples Architectural Museum, etc.) that they offered no tours too and the countless bombarding of X % off this and that. It was easy to ignore but we were surrounded by it. Tours were not worth the money. Additionally, the cruises. com agent that booked our tour, Chris H., was very professional, helpful and thorough (and always accessible for our questions)

Excursions and their $$$$s are a waste unless the site is far out of town and unavailable by train. We do much better on our own at our pace. More fun to explore on your own than be herded in a bus with 40-60 others. saw three tuxedos on formal nights. Formality is almost passé (a good thing?)
