Our First - and Last - Cruise on the Emerald Princess
"This was our 17th cruise - the 4th with Princess, the remainder with P&O. Our previous Princess ships were the Island, the Regal and the Royal, so we knew what to expect - or so we thought! It's my fault - I..."Read More

This was our first time on the Sapphire Princess although we had been on the sister ship, Diamond, earlier in the year in Japan so knew mostly what to expect. We had initially been booked on the Explorer of the seas for a similar itinerary at the same time but when it got cancelled we opted for this cruise rather than taking the Independence of the Seas {which followed most of our trip} as the ...

Sapphire Princess Canaries October 2019. Our fourth time on this ship in two years and in view of its final departure from Southampton this cruise was a real anti climax. Check In and boarding at Southampton took longer for Platinum and Elite members that it did for first timers - too many at the higher end of Princess Captains Circle Loyalty Scheme? Same balcony stateroom (C232) ...

I chose this cruise as an alternative to visiting the Pacific again. I stayed in Southampton prior to the cruise taking the NEX bus down from Heathrow T3 for £19. Very easy to do and it took less than 2h. Embarkation was running smoothly until they had a problem with the gangway and they didn’t board passengers for at least half an hour. Of course, people kept piling into the terminal. They ...

This was our first cruise and we loved every second. The entire experience was amazing, and for me it was hard to find fault. I know with it being my first cruise, it could be argued that I have no other cruise lines to compare it to, but as far as holiday experiences go, I have to say it is one of the best I've had. It was completly stress free to board the ship, no queueing or waiting ...

We chose this cruise as we wanted the convenience of sailing from Southampton and we wanted near on guaranteed sunshine. We have also sailed with Princess many times and are Platinum members. Embarkation was perfect no complaints top marks. First night alarms crew called to muster station because of smoke in Engine room dealt with very well by the captain and crew couldn't have been ...

Our 12th cruise with Princess, 2nd time to Canaries and 2nd time on Emerald Princess. So the best way to do this review is a daily account: Saturday 17/08/16: Pulled up at the Mayflower Terminal a bit early, but check in still dealt with us early. As always it was smooth, seamless and efficient. Found our own way to our balcony stateroom and waited FIVE HOURS for our luggage to arrive so we ...

We booked this cruise fairly close to departure and as a result only had an option for a guarantee inside cabin. As per the cabin review we would not do this again on this ship. Our stateroom attendant however was wonderful. Always friendly, helpful and efficient. Embarkation was handled very well. Probably the smoothest and easiest of any cruise so far. This was our first Princess cruise ...

We chose this cruise mainly because it was from Southampton, in September and on Princess which we prefer. We enjoyed the cruise in the main but a couple of things we felt could have been better. Firstly could not fault the crew. They were helpful, friendly and the cabin steward was excellent. We found the ship clean, and well maintained. The public areas comfortable. The areas that we were ...

My wife and I were looking for a different cruise from the norm to celebrate our anniversary. We had sailed on the Emerald previously (and her sister ships) so the ship was quite familiar to us. Embarkation was one of the easiest we have ever experienced. We started our trip five days early in London and took the transfer from Victoria Motor coach Station to the ship. We arrived at the port ...
