First time Princess cruisers and we were very impressed with the ship and its staff. We had previously been on Carnival\, Celebrity\, and Costa. This cruise was much better than the Carnival and Celebrity lines. I would also rate it just above Costa on the maintenance of the ship. The dining experience on Princess Emerald was so much better than the Carnival. The staff was superb at all times\, they are well trained in customer service and being extremely outgoing and friendly. Will definitely be a second time Princess cruiser.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Great wait staff\, knowledgable about the menu each night just like a staff at a high end restaurant. Anytime dining is good but the reservation line needs to understand the term \"anytime\" every time we called the line they only offered 5:30 and 7:30 PM\, yet the maitre d at the dining room asked each night as we appeared at the entrance if we had reservations. Despite no reservations we were seated within 5-10 minutes. s

Always there to take care of anything you need\, our stateroom person had our room refreshed after every visit we made to the room.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Room was small and balcony was tight on the Baja deck\, recommend lower deck on Caribe\, but then people have a clear view of you on the balcony at all times and no privacy.

Pros: Ship was very well kept and staff was excellent

Cons: Not enough time in ports

Recommends Emerald Princess? Yes!
