Excellent Cruise

Sail Date: May 05, 2007

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Beautiful ship that was well maintaiined. Even though it was new (we were on Christening cruise), there was continuous revarnishing, painting and touch up to keep it looking new.

Pros: Food, service, ports

Cons: Poor internet access, too many extra charges for items that should be included, such as water when leaving boat in hot climate

Recommends Emerald Princess? Yes!

Corfu, Greece
Enjoyed walk into city. Nothing that stood out.
Piraeus (Athens), Greece
Best tour of cruise; saw all major site, with ample time at Acropolis, very nice Greek dinner, and time in Plaka for shopping and wandering, with trip to National Museum following.
Don't Miss: Acropolis
Venice, Italy
Venice lives up to its billing in terms of beauty; outrageously expensive, but was a lot of fun
Don't Miss: Rip off gondola ride; you have to do this no matter how bad it hurts

Santorini, Greece
Trip to top is an adventure in itself, especially if you take the donkeys.
Don't Miss: Donkey ride up; do not advise donkey ride down; take the cable car
Mykonos, Greece
Nice walk around town and to Little Venice; enjoyed the island; planned to take ferry to Delos for archaelogical tour, but missed it;
Kusadasi (Ephesus), Turkey
Efasus was one of best archaelogical sites on entire cruise. Bazaar at port was disappointing, due to overly aggressive shop owners who refused to allow you to enjoy the market and various wares.
Don't Miss: Efasus
Naples, Italy
Tour to Pompeii was fabulous. We heard from guests that tour to Capri was worthwhile.

Monte Carlo, Monaco
The walk to top of hill to Maritime Museum was worthwhile, as was the "Tonka Toy" train ride, which gave quick, overall tour of city, Casino, hotels, parks and downtown sites.

Livorno (Florence & Pisa), Italy
We ttook the day tour to Florence, where museums were closed (it was Monday), but still had a nice walk through city and San Marco cathedral; the trip to Pisa allowed only 20 minutes to visit tower and adjacent church, which was insufficient time; tour guide was incredibly knowledgeable, however.
Don't Miss: On any day but Monday, arrange tour of Effuzi and/or Accademie in Florence
