Review summary

  From the moment we boarded the beautiful Emerald Princess on April 02, 2016 we were greeted by a friendly and enthusiastic staff.  We enjoyed our premium balcony cabin which allowed us to have a panoramic view of the ocean and ports.  Our room steward, Minguel, was always very friendly and provided excellent service.  Our dining experience at the Michelangelo Dining Room was wonderful.  The beautiful hostess Iryna  was like a ray of sunshine every time we entered the dining room.  The food was delicious and the waiters were very prompt and efficient.  All of the staff members we encountered on the ship were fantastic.  They went the extra mile to make sure we had a great vacation.

   We also thoroughly enjoyed the port lectures by Ken Broadhurst and the enrichment lectures by Jerry Zarr.  The excursions were all very enjoyable and educational, and all that we were on ran smoothly.  All of the guides were excellent.

   The shows, movies, and other on board entertainment that we participated in were also top quality. 

   Overall, it was a wonderful experience.

The view from our balcony was fantastic. Our cabin was very comfortable. The shower was small but adequate. Minguel, our room steward was superb and consistently provided excellent service. He made this cruise a real pleasure.

We booked this cruise primarily because we wanted to visit Ponta Delgada. We were very disappointed when they skipped the Azores because of the storm.
