  1. I just happened to be looking at the current Roll Call for the Emerald (now cruising in Western Europe) and saw that the passengers were notified of a GI illness problem (not confirmed as Noro) and the staff has implemented "Code Orange" procedures (lots of cleaning and no self-service in the Lido).

  2. Hoping some of your experienced Princess cruisers can help a newbie out please. We have taken about 20 cruises before but mostly on HAL, with a few on Oceania & NCL. 1- The balcony cabin we have been offered is opposite a self service laundry, does this cause noise which you can hear inside your cabin? 2- How is the Emerald Princess, compared to other ships in the fleet. Any particular positives or negatives?
  3. Hi all, we have been loyal Celebrity Cruisers for years, and are in the process of booking an Emerald Princess 28-day Hawaii Cruise (Celebrity does not have a comparable itinerary). For those that have cruised both Celebrity and Princess what will we love and what will we not? Know this is subjective, just looking for comparisons. Thanks
  4. I’ve taken an up-sell to a Premium Balcony on the Caribe deck. What’s the difference btw a regular balcony on the Caribe deck vs a Premium Balcony on the Emerald Princess? I understand that this has an upper birth & is a connecting stateroom. Anyone stayed in this stateroom? Here’s the details of the balcony. Stateroom Number: C506 Type: Premium Balcony Category: B2 Location: Mid-Aft Deck: 10 (Caribe) Bath Type: Shower Connecting Room: C504 Total Size: 271 sq. ft. Special Notes: 1 UPPER BERTH CONNECTS WITH C504 Anyone stayed in this stateroom? Thanks! Tom😎
  5. Has anybody used the twin bed configuration in a Balcony Room on either of these ships? Looking at the floor plan, it looks like there would be little to no room between the beds when separated - unless the end tables are stored away somewhere. I will have older children in these rooms, and want to make sure there is actually a decent amount of distance between the beds.
  6. I've read lots of reports of people having to queue for the Horizon Court on this ship and lots complaining it's to small. What's your experiences ? And has it changed since the dry dock , I believe its now called something else but I'm not sure of the name. Does anyone have pics since the revamp or have a link to pictures ?
  7. Any insight into C210? Is it too far forward? Also, how about Aloha or Plaza deck...too high? Never had one on that deck.
  8. I know the Royal class ships have a sports court that unorganized PickleBall is played on. Is there a court on the Emerald?
  9. Dining choices on the Emerald list Sabatini's but when looking at the deck plans I cannot locate it. Anyone able to tell me what deck it is on?
  10. Hi! I am looking to book a balcony room on Emerald Princess for a Pacific Wine Country cruise. I've never cruised on Princess (although we are going on Regal Princess next month), so I would love some advice or tips on selecting a balcony room. Which ones are more desirable or which ones should I avoid? I'm open to any of the decks or location on the ship. Thanks in advance!
  11. Anybody recently had the chiefs dinner on the Emerald Princess & if so what did you pay? Tom😀
  12. OMG, I tried several times to access it and a pop up says “site disabled”. So many people depend on this to book !!
  13. I know this issue was addressed a few months ago, but do not know if it was updated. I know some Princess ships have USB ports in the bedside lamps. We are wondering if the Emerald lamps were updated during the latest dry dock. Any current info is greatly appreciated!!!! Nancy
  14. Has anyone stayed in E118 Obstructed Ocean View on the Emerald Princess? What was your obstruction? I read somewhere that you look out to the Promenade Deck. Thanks! Tom
  15. Is their a door forward on the Caribe deck that takes you to an outside area where you can view the locks as you go through?
  16. I have a few questions about this cabin. It has a bunk bed...does it fold up against the wall or go up into the ceiling? If against the wall, are we going to be bumping into it? Thanks!
  17. We are seriously thinking about the 28 day Hawaii/Tahiti cruise Feb 2020 but have some questions hopefully you great cruisers can answer. 1. Do things get repetitive on this long of a cruise? EG: Does a 10 day menu get repeated in the mdr? Are there 28 different movies under the stars? Or are activities NOT repeated? 2. Are there 2 main show times in the evening or only 1? Thank you in advance. Our longest cruise to this point has been 10 days and this is a big leap, not only in time but $$$. Disliked our Mexican Riviera Princess cruise 2 yrs ago--South Pacific is on the bucket list and this seems the best way for us to go. All input is appreciated.
  18. Boarding the Emerald Princess on Saturday - woo hoo! Would love to know your favourites: spot, food, restaurant, inside tips, bar, favorite place, pool, secret place, etc, Thank you :)
  19. Hello all, I was wondering if anyone has current experience eating gluten free on the Emerald Mediterranean, and Royal Alaskan cruises. We've sailed Princess in the past, and have already submitted our dietary requests. Just wondering if there are new items offered in the various establishments. Thanks so much.
  20. We are sailing this month and were wondering if now that the ship is out of dry dock the beds were good or too hard. We have bed toppers we can bring. Or shouldn’t we bother?
  21. I know this is a long shot... and way past the time of our trip..... But.. My wife and I cruised Alaska on the Emerald out of Seattle on Sept 10th 2017 to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary. While onboard, we participated in the "Newlywed Game" that they have onboard. This was a HUGE leap out of both of our comfort zones but we had a BLAST doing it. We were sailing alone and didn't think to ask someone to take a pic or video of us... So we are REALLY hoping we can track someone down that took pictures or a video of this show that they would be willing to share with us! We never thought we would get picked to participate, so we didn't think to ask anyone around us to take pictures. :-( Any help would be AMAZING! Thanks in advance cruisers!!
  22. Hi- we are currently in the Emerald Princess. We just boarded yesterday and I wanted to post a few observations so far. Embarkation: 1. We flew in the same day as the cruise (scary, I know;) but we had no issues with flight delays, etc We did take a taxi from the airport to the port and I think we were “ taken for a ride”. The lady at the airport and most people online said it should cost about 50E but we were charged 80E. So if taking a taxi to the port consider taking prearranged transport in athens. 2. Check In was a breeze. No lines. Rooms were ready when we boarded at 2:30 and luggage arrived soon after. BTW- there is a Durty Free store after the X-ray check In area which sells wine and other alcohol. We already purchased two bottles of wine before security and wished we had waited as the selection was much better in the Duty free. We had dinner at the Crown Grill the first night using our BOGO offer from the coupon book. Service was excellent but the food was not good. Nothing compared to our previous experiences at specialty restaurants in Celebrity in terms of meat quality and taste of the food. Only the first night so we will see if the food quality improves. Not impressed with selection in the buffet at lunch today either. Hopefully dinner tonight will be better. No problem using an old Coffee Card I got from my friend. International Cafe was nice and ice chai I got this morning was tasty. Guest services was a zoo all day yesterday but much better today while at the port of Santorini. We request extra keys to be made for our rooms twice and they still don’t work:( Tendering process was excellent and we had a very short wait this morning at 8 am to get on shore. So just a few observations so far. Any questions that that I can answer let me know.
  23. Do the quad inside cabins on the Emerald Princess have the extra beds coming out of the side of the walls or down from the ceiling?
  24. I know she was recently in dry dock and received new televisions. Is there on Demand?
  25. When I went to book on the Enchanted it did not show cabins available for booking on Emerald Deck. I booked Dolphin but was curious what was going on. I checked the deck plans for the Enchanted and it shows cabins on Emerald Deck. Any one know why this could be - thanks.
