Emerald Princess is a magnificent member of the award-winning Princess Cruises fleet. Hosting 3,080 guests, who are welcomed aboard by 1,200 crew members, this cruise ship embarked on its maiden voyage in 2007. A refurbishment in 2015 brought the 19-deck vessel and its 1,539 stylish staterooms up to modern standards.
On board Emerald Princess activities and entertainment options abound. Four pools on three different decks each offer their own unique atmosphere along with plenty of comfortable chaise longues. After an afternoon soaking up the sun, guests can shop until they drop at the Piazza, the ship’s central hub inspired by the charming squares of Europe. Once night falls, the dining options offer a tremendous array of variety. Three main dining rooms join an Italian restaurant, a steak and seafood grill, and a Caribbean/Mediterranean Buffet on board this ship, while pizza, hamburgers, hot dogs, and ice cream are always available. For an extra special experience, guests can enjoy a multi-course gourmet meal upon their own private balcony.
With cruising itineraries tracing California’s coastline, venturing north to Alaska, south to Mexico, or west to the Hawaiian Islands, Emerald Princess is an excellent choice for a family cruise as well as for a romantic couple’s getaway. The ship also offers voyages in the Mediterranean, Aegean, and Adriatic seas, in addition to trips through the Panama Canal. A distinctive aspect of the ship’s refurbishment in 2015 was the addition of brand new beds developed in collaboration with certified sleep experts. Guests are assured an exceptional night’s sleep aboard this fabulous ship.
