Highly recommended the itinerary. The Princess folks have it down, and offer a good value for a great memory.

Great Panama Canal Adventure!

May 12th, 2019

Overall, we recommend both the Emerald Princess and also this itinerary. We had a fabulous time and really enjoyed the trip! The Panama Canal is a "must see" for any traveler and Princess does it right

The Emerald Princess - Here's the scoop!

May 8th, 2019

The Emerald Princess was about what we expected. It's an older ship and definitely needs some updating. The club class is the way to go if you can. We did a full review of the ship here: https://youtu.be/UwUljBjRK4A #LoveAboveAll...Blessings.

Ok ship for an Alaskan cruise ! Pizza was disappointing, ice cream was really good when recently stocked ! Hamburgers were really good ! The guy knew I liked them and kept serving them with a smile ! Sea food lovers will feel fantastic thanks to the dining options although on lobster day the lobster was really thin and the server dropped the lobster shell on my expensive pants! The guy obviously needs more training serving at tables! Other than that the Emerald Princess does a decent job for a not expensive Alaska cruise!

Fabulous cruise with great renovations

Enjoyable getaway

Overall a good time but not spectacular for the most part - food was good but not amazing, and the amenities were good but nothing outstanding.

We really enjoyed our three night repositioning cruise from Vancouver to LA! The Emerald was just out of dry dock with new carpet and fresh paint, although some of the furnishings are still showing wear. The food was excellent and the service was superb! The sea days were just what we needed to relax and plan our next cruise! And we win at Bingo so that was a plus! And they still used plastic straws! Another bonus as some drinks don’t lend themselves to “no straw” or “paper straws”.

Wonderful Hawaii

Fine cruise. Enjoyed it but the ship was a dissappointment. Princess should have dry docked her sooner. There are not enough inside spaces for cool weather. Theatre is too small. Hot tub jets were barely working. Horizon court was old and crowded lay out. They herded us into lines to go through and should have had more choices. The furniture was sticky and old. The pizza was fantastic though. Explorers Lounge needs updating and so does the piazza furniture. There were actual rips in the chair cushions. Just not up to Princess' standards.
