December 2014 - Emerald Princess to Caribbean - Western
enjoyed the cruise and ship. Great food. Fun entertainment staff. Everything about the onboard experience was great. Not so much the ship associated tours and shore excursions. Very sterile. You get what the cruise line wanted to show you plus a lot of ship/cruise line provided shopping. While this provides a safe atmosphere, you don't really get a flavor of the locals. I go for the shore excursions as much as the onboard experience. 5 stars for the ship, 3 for the excursions. 4 overall.
