Scary but Princess compensated us

Sail Date: July 25, 2010

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The power failure was unsettling at first but the Captain kept us informed every step of the way and Princess compensated us with a free glass of wine and a $300.00 ship board credit.Ship was beautiful,meals were superb. Our waiter in the Michaelangelo dining room and his assistant were amazing.(Sunam and Boome)Our head waiter Pedro was also excellent. The meal in the Crown Grille was excellent but I don't believe they should charge a $25.00 cover charge.The cost for the cruise should cover any restaurant you want to eat at. Our waitress Michala from Romania was also spectactular.

Pros: Beautiful ship, incredible food.Great entertainment and spectacular ports.

Cons: 5 hour power failure,Crew not very friendly.Been on many cruises, our room steward never came and introduced himself to us. Many crew and staff barely said hello. The liquor we purchased in port was not delivered to us and no one contacted us we had to go to the purser to retreive it

Recommends Emerald Princess? No.

Food and Dining
Food magnificent
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
Bluebeards castle was fun and the rum factory.
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
Snorkeling trip was a disappointment. Did not see many fish saw a sunken boat,cannon and a small replica of a submarine.Last year in St. Thomas we wentout with Captain Nautica and it was fantastic!
Grand Turk Island
Loved Margaritaville.
