Sail Date: October 19, 2011

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

The ship was very well run - for example the way passengers were checked in and out of the ship and the ease with which they handled the disembarkation of all 3,200 passengers was impressive. They should be running our government! I also like the card system for paying for things and the fact that one could check the status of spending by passing the card through a machine at the front office and getting a printout.

Pros: The food, the entertainment and the staff

Cons: The photographers, pushing their photos

Recommends Emerald Princess? Yes!

Ship Quality
Will ask for a cabin that is more central next time as the walking on a ship that size is considerable.
Food and Dining
Wonderful!!!! Especially the fruit and vegetables, so fresh.
Cabin / Stateroom
No problem with mirror space when sharing the stateroom, also lots of plug-ins! Plenty large enough, although next time we will want to upgrade to a balcony room.
Service and Staff
They were exceptional.
Almost too much as there was never enough time to do everything that was offered. Loved the synopsis of available happenings that arrived at the door the evening before. Shore excursions tended to be expensive though, and it is possible to do things independantly.
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
Oranjestad, Aruba
Local taxis again, great shopping!!!!!!!
Princess Cays (Cruise Line Private Island)
Very nice introduction to beach and sea -
Tour guide very knowledgeable - good tour
St. George's, Grenada
Bonaire, Netherlands Special Municipality
Did not need to book a tour as local taxis could do the same thing.
