Emerald Princess

September 2015 - Emerald Princess to Europe - Mediterranean

Not enough time :)

We had a lovely cruise. Everyone on board was so friendly. I thought the food was MOSTLY good. My husband and I both work in high end restaurants, so we are naturally a little snobby, and we know that. We accept that it's very large numbers and all that. BUT I would recommend not listing things on a menu just to make it sound fancy if you don't put it in the dish. Saying that a salad is made of endive and goat cheese, and then serving a romaine salad is not the same. My husband ordered something with veal sweetbreads, and it was simply dark meat chicken. Most people wouldn't notice these things, but we did. Other than that, I thought it was quite good.

 

The beds were comfy, our room was cleaned perfectly, the drinks were MOSTLY good, I thought the cocktails could be improved upon, but again, as that is my business, I am a bit snobby in that respect. It would be interesting to see how a ship with "craft cocktails" would do. Call me if you ever need help with that ;)

 

The only other thing that was tough was the 7 am wakeup for ports of call only to have a few hours once you got there. I would be interested in a cruise that stopped for maybe a day and a half and you could either book a room in say Rome, or come back to the boat. We left pretty early every day, and only ended up with I think 3 hours in Rome after something like 2.5 hours on trains and busses each way. 

 

Overall, we loved it, and will be back again. Great Staff, great experience.

Emerald Princess Emerald Princess - If you're going to drink, get the all inclusive package right away. My husband did, and I didn't, and I spent almost as much as he did, and had to worry about it.
