5 Night Western Caribbean Getaway (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)
Sail Date: February 06, 2016
Ship: Emerald Princess
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: R501
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 2 years ago

Ship is beautiful, balcony cabin was nice, never-seen room steward kept room fresh. Loved Movies Under the Stars, including blankets at night. Staff was all friendly although we could tell how hard it was for many to be away from their families for so long. Thought food selection was fairly limited and repetitive, hardly any seafood, especially at buffets, although fresh fruit selection was nice. Desserts were average. Had more trouble that usual keeping bearings on ship and saw others having same problems. Need more ways to recognize port and starboard without looking at ocean wake, and paper map doesn't indicate whether amenities such as the delicious pizza/ ice cream, and hamburger restaurants are on port or starboard, Library needs more bestsellers! Ship feels intimate because broken into many smaller sections, bars and lounges.
