Amazing Alaskan Cruise
Emerald Princess Cruise Review to Alaska - Inside Passage
Review summaryOnce in a lifetime trip! It was amazing! Alaska is beautiful and my wife would move there to be a hermit if anything happened to me. Definitely do some excursions. Do some activities on the ship too. Eat as much as you want and take the stairs when you can, so that you can eat even more.
Food and Dining
Open 24 hours. Nice to get lunch here or a snack.
Nice atmosphere. The singer/guitar player was excellent.
Food was good but could've been a little warmer. It was hard to find a seat too.
Casino was fun. Only played blackjack. Wished there were more opportunities to learn other games. Dealers could've interacted a little more and made it more fun. If you want to drink in the casino, bring it in from another bar or go to the bar before you sit down at a table because there are not many servers in the casino.
Prices were kind of high and it was very busy. But if you want to do the spa, do it while at port for discounts and it is less busy.
Don't do the jogging track. It is only a good size if you are a toddler. 18 times around=1 mile. Shouldn't be called a jogging track. Instead, walk/jog around deck 7 (2.5 times around=1 mile).
Never found this. Not sure if it was really on the ship because we looked specifically for it.
Movies Under The Stars
They don't have a lot of blankets and the ones they have are thin. So bring your own or bundle up. Or cuddle close to your mate. It is really neat to watch a movie under the stars on the ocean!
Nice theater. I thought the sound could've been better for movies but my wife and brother said it was fine so maybe it was just me. Don't sit on the floor because someone with a big head will sit in from of you.
My only complaint is that it wasn't bigger. It was hard to find seats at some of the shows so I think they just need to plan the venues better.
Service and Staff
Cabin / Stateroom
Plan your days so that you get to do everything you want to on the ship. You can use the Princess app and add activities. Also, make sure you list enough bags if you do Port Valet because it's not easy to change and you may get charged for extra luggage.
