We had an excellent and unforgettable experience with Emerald Princess, our second time with Princess. We appreciate all the efforts that you made to ensure every one received satisfactory service.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The staff were well trained, knew what they did, polite and nice. Our room steward Aki was diligent and responsible. The Waitress Edith VPlcapoma left a deep impression on us due to her professional service and pleasant personality. We liked Aeron, the directer of entertainment. We wish him a prosperous career and a happy life.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Although the ship is 13 years old, it is still a good model of the cruise ship design. It is practical. The common areas were clean and well maintained.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
we rate every item excellent, including our cabin. it is small but neat and fit to purpose.

Ship tip

We were sorry that we did not get the shuttle bus service from the port to the airport in Los Angels. We regitsted to the service early enough and were not sure why we were not in the list. Something must have been wrong in the service process.

Ports of call

San Pedro (Los Angeles), California

5 out of 5
The port was good. We visited the museum, but were too late to visit the Warship. The port is very good. Best wishes to its future development.

Honolulu, Oahu

5 out of 5
The port is good. yes, we did an excursion and visited the Pearl Harbour museum, it is an excellent museum. This museum together with the WWII museum in New Orleans provide historical facts for generations to come. One day visit for Honolulu or Oahu seems not sufficient.

Lahaina, Maui

5 out of 5
It is a port that has to use shuttle boats. We appreciate the efforts made. but the waiting time in the line back to the ship was too long, 100 minutes for us. Is there a better way to organize this? Yes, we did an excursion. It is a beautiful island. Of the four islands we visited, we like Maui best!

Nawiliwili, Kauai

5 out of 5
Yes, we did an excursion, the Canyon was huge, enormous and impressive, among other scenery.

Pago Pago, American Samoa Did not visit port

it was cancelled.

Cross International Dateline Did not visit port

It was cancelled. It was a pity because this was a place we longed for a visit from our childhood.

Apia, Samoa Did not visit port

It was cancelled.

Bora Bora, French Polynesia

5 out of 5
Bora Bora did not fail our expectation that it is the most beautiful island on the planet. Thank God for such a beautiful natural place, and thank the Americal people for the good job done to maintain its natural beauty.

Papeete, Tahiti

5 out of 5
I next thought i would one day have the opportunity to visit this great place. yes, we did an excursion, a wonderful experience.

Moorea, French Polynesia Did not visit port

Everything was wonderful, the port, the scenery, the ship service ...

Pretty well organized except that our luggage were place in the incorrect room, and it took us some time to finally find our suitcases. This should not have happened.
