Good value cruise!  Didn't know what to expect because we travelled after school Christmas vacation.  Thought the demographics would be mostly retired people or childless couples able to travel while school was back in.  Not so!  Ship was filled with children, no matter where you went.  Food in the dining room was quite good other than our first meal.  Made the wrong choice.  Service was excellent.  Interior cabin was roomy for two people, and the staff maintaining the cabins were friendly and attentive.  Food poolside was also excellent.  We didn't try the BBQ as we heard wait time was extremely long.  Stayed away from the lunch buffet and breakfast, also long lines.  Biggest complaint was late in the evening, only choice was pizza, part of the buffet area should be open as it is on Princess cruises.  Heard this complaint from several people.  Entertainment at night was first class, took in all shows including the comedy club each night.  Great way to pass the evening if you don't want to gamble or spend a lot of money.   Biggest complaint is the reserving of lounge chairs on deck.  It is insane that you go out onto the deck at 8:00 am and towels are already clothespinned to chairs reserving seats.  This needs to be addressed.   Second complaint is that formal nights in the dining rooms are not mandatory but only suggested.  Sitting at a table with someone in jeans and a t-shirt isn't acceptable when we take the time to dress up in formal wear to enjoy a special night.  This really puts a damper on what is meant to be a special night.    Overall, for the price I would recommend the cruise line, but just realize you get what you pay for.   Clientel is certainly different on Princess Emerald cruises than on Carnival Cruises.
