Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Inside

We really enjoy Princess cruises and this is our second time on the Emerald Princess.  We were on the Aloha deck, inside cabin.  We had a really good cabin steward, enjoyed room service for coffee each morning, and the food and dining service was all very professional.

We have been on 13 cruises and seem to enjoy Princess best.  We would love to see more land and sea experiences offered for a new experience where we could explore the ports a bit longer.

Ship Quality
This is our second time on the Emerald Princess and it is a nice ship.
Food and Dining
We enjoyed each and every meal including the wonderful desserts.
Service and Staff
We had exceptional crew this time and left comment cards commending several.
We thoroughly enjoyed the young dance crew. Comedian and magician were acceptable.
Onboard Activities
We enjoy bingo, trivia, and always see what's available in the main theatre.
Destinations and Excursions
Well, there's only so many times you can go to Cozumel and still enjoy. We didn't buy any excursions this time. In Roatan, Honduras, we hired a driver to do some sightseeing around the island.
Cabin / Stateroom
We are always looking for the best price. We have done interior as well as balcony staterooms. For the price, the interior room was hard to beat. We don't spend a great deal of time in the stateroom. We like being on the upper decks and away from public areas and elevators.
Houston, Texas
This is an easy port to park in; $75.00 weekly. It is a long drove through industrial areas.
Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras
We hired a driver to take 6 people around the island for 3 hours for $150 plus a tip.
Belize City, Belize
We only rode the tender to the shopping area, which is very limited. The silver jewelers are quite willing to negotiate.
Cozumel, Mexico Fat Tuesdays offered free internet, so we all six went in and bought a drink, but the internet connection was never strong enough to use it.


We are from the Houston area and were quite surprised to have people from so many parts of the U.S. and Canada on board. The ship is very pretty and easy to get around.
