Emerald Princess in St. Kitts
Your Emerald Princess cruise is sure to amaze! If you have sailed with the Crown Princess, you can expect to find a similar layout on the Emerald.
Choosing any Emerald Princess itinerary to the Caribbean will leave you wanting more.
Read what some past Emerald Princess passengers have said about their experience:
1. "This was our 20th cruise and our 8th with Princess, and we couldn't have been any happier."
2. "Cannot say enough of the fabulous service and the food was excellent."
3. "Nice ship, great itinerary, good food..."
4. "This was a very relaxing and pleasurable vacation and a great way to get away from the cold weather. We look forward to cruising on the Emerald again."
5. "This was by far, our best cruise yet. The staff and crew were wonderful, the food was good..."
Understandably, not everyone was impressed - this happens with all cruise sailings:
1. "The food has been going downhill. On this cruise almost everything we had in the dining room was flat out inedible..."
2. "Princess just doesn't meet our needs the way Carnival does. We find the selection of food items in Princess' Horizon Court to be very limited..."
3. "What was supposed to be a wonderful holiday cruise with family was a bust!"

Emerald Princess' Atrium
You will be awed when you first get on board. The ship has a beautiful meeting place - an Italian piazza - where you can relax, grab something from the International Cafe, or just watch your fellow passengers.
If you are into dipping and splashing, you will have several pools and hot-tubs from which to choose. There is also an adult-only - "The Sanctuary" - where your kids cannot enter. Yeah!
You will also be impressed with the Emerald's fine dining. There are formal dining rooms, specialty restaurants and the customary buffet area.
Emerald Princess' chefs are said to make finger-licking entrees!
Get lost in organized activities, golf, an art auction, the library, a state-of-the-art fitness center.
At night go dancing, watch movies under the stars on a giant TV screen, or enjoy a professionally choreographed theater production.
There is just too much fun stuff to do on an Emerald Princess cruise!
Spectacular View from the "Emerald"
Similarly to the Ruby Princess, which once sailed the Caribbean, Emerald Princess' itineraries have changed. Princess Cruises uses some of its newer ships for Caribbean cruises.
This ship, which once offered cruises to the Eastern and Southern Caribbean, now sails to exotic destinations such as Hawaii, the Panama Canal and Alaska.
Hawaii Cruises with Emerald Princess: You will most likely find a limited number of itineraries from Los Angeles to Hawaii and beyond.
Panama Canal Cruises with Emerald Princess: Expect to find what are called ocean-to-ocean cruises through the Panama Canal. Sailings will originate from either San Diego or Los Angeles, pass through the Panama Canal and terminate in Ft. Lauderdale.
You will also find sailings headed in the reverse direction - from Ft. Lauderdale to San Diego or Los Angeles.
Alaska Cruises with Emerald Princess: The "Emerald" offers "Inside Passage" Alaska cruises from Seattle to popular ports such as Juneau, Skayway and Ketchikan.
These roundtrip sailings generally include a glacier-viewing opportunity of the Endicott Arm and Dawes Glacier.
Check with your Travel Agent for available itineraries.

Your family will have fun-times on board this remarkable Princess Cruises ship!
