Emerald Princess is a Crown-class cruise ship for Princess Cruises that entered service in April 2007. Her sister ships include Ruby Princess and Crown Princess.

As far as modern mega-ships go — with a passenger capacity of more than 3,000 — Emerald Princess maintains the high level of service it was celebrated for when it first launched.

But what the ship does really well is balanced modern needs, without over-the-top gimmicks, with rich and well-constructed excursions, allowing passengers to make the best of both the ship and the destination.

The newest jewel in the Princess crown, Emerald Princess is everything you would expect from such a modern, luxurious ship. As with most of our ships, the theme is choices. There are multiple dining options, including Traditional and Anytime Dining, and specialty venues like the popular Sabatini’s.

You can visit the Lotus Spa with its myriad treatments, and the Lotus Fitness Center where you can stay trim from all the delicious cuisine. You’ll enjoy watching Movies Under the Stars and will have nearly 900 balcony staterooms from which to choose.

The ambiance of Emerald Princess is relaxed. Perhaps because passengers focus their energy on exploring the destination, evenings seem to be less about glitzy affairs and more about relaxed dinners.

Although the ship’s glamorous Skywalkers Nightclub — with fabulous floor-to-ceiling glass windows providing never-ending ocean views — offers the perfect opportunity for cocktails and dancing into the early hours.
