Sail Date: October 19, 2011
Ship: Emerald Princess
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 6 years ago

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.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Wonderful!!!! Especially the fruit and vegetables, so fresh.


5 out of 5
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.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
They were exceptional.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Will ask for a cabin that is more central next time as the walking on a ship that size is considerable.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
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.

Did not need to book a tour as local taxis could do the same thing.
