Great cruise sad end!

Mar 29th, 2020

We really enjoyed the cruise and the Panama Canal transit. The sad part of the adventure was the announcement that Princess was temporarily ceasing operations due to the pandemic. The last few days at sea, following the cancellation of our call at Cartagena, were quite stressful. There were concerns over whether we might be quarantined or get a flight home. Princess and the ships crew did a fantastic job of keeping us advised and happy. In the end we made it home with great memories. We do however wonder how the crew are now getting on now the vessels have been effectively laid up.

Princess is not the cruiseline for me.

Mar 18th, 2020

This is a great trip if you have the time and like days at sea. (We love sea days!) This was our first Princess cruise and we weren't that impressed when comparing Princess to other cruise lines we have used. The food is good but not fantastic--the buffet was definitely sub-par. We met many other cruisers who wouldn't think of using a cruiseline other than Princess. The Emerald is quite large (3,000+ passengers) but to Princess' credit, it didn't seem crowded. We were lucky to have taken our cruise at the time we did because no ships are cruising now (COVID-19)

Amazing cruise to the South Pacific

Mar 11th, 2020

There were a lot of sea days but there was always something to do. Bora Bora was the highlight of the whole cruise. It is an amazing place where pictures do not do justice. It is some of the most beautiful water in the world. In spite of not being able to dock in Pago Pago and Apia it was the trip of a lifetime for us. They substituted the big island of Hawaii for those two ports. It was nice but disappointing because we had been to Hilo and Kona before.

A Wonderful Emerald Princess Cruise Feb 2020

Mar 7th, 2020

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. We hope that the virus will go away soon and Princess will continue its sailing across the world safely.

We had an amazing cruise

Mar 7th, 2020

We had a wonderful 28 day cruise. You can do and be as busy as you want to be or simply do nothing. Either is fine but we choose to be more low key and do our own thing anyway. Entertainment on board was so so. The production shows were amazing. The comedians were great but not enough in our mind. The music around the ship was pretty much the same type at the various venues except for the duo Char and Philly and the band Atomic. The others were not our taste but other passengers seemed to enjoy it. To each his own. We had an excellent cruise from embarkation to disembarkation and would highly recommend the Emerald and this itinerary in a heartbeat.

Wonderful South Pacific

Mar 2nd, 2020

This was a trip of a lifetime for us. We enjoyed everything. It was unfortunate that we couldn’t visit Samoa but we got a bonus trip the the big island of Hawaii which we hadn’t been to. Also we got a extra day at Bora Bora which is a pretty nice place to spend a extra day at.
