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 Italian restaurant. There is 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.
Modestly affluent first-timers, frequent cruisers who want easy-paced travel, are not demanding, prefer an even balance between sea and land time, and who understand that the Love Boat was only a television show.
