Cruise Tips Photo Gallery

Note!! This year (2010) the Baltic cruise will be by the Star Princess!

Emerald Princess is a Grand Class cruise ship for Princess Cruises that entered service in April 2007. Her sister ships include Caribbean Princess and Crown Princess. She features two nightclubs, a piazza style atrium, multiple pools and hot tubs, a spa, and a gym. Unlike her sisters, Emerald Princess does not have a disco overhanging the stern, but the same stern as her near-sisters Diamond Princess and Sapphire Princess.

Princess Cruises launched the 17th addition to their already impressive fleet of luxurious cruise ships. The Emerald Princess made her eagerly awaited debut on 11th April 2007 against the beautifully dramatic cityscape of Rome, before embarking on her maiden voyage through the Med and Greek Isles.
Princess Cruises' Emerald Princess, built in Italy 's Fincantieri shipyards, weighs in at 113000 tons with a length of 290 metres and a width of 36 metres. Passenger capacity onboard the Emerald Princess is over 3000, with nearly 900 of her 1500 plus staterooms featuring balconies.
The $525 million Emerald Princess features everything that you would expect from a ship sailing under the luxury Princess Cruises banner, offering all guests a 'bounty of choice'.
A major attraction for Emerald Princess guests is the flexible 'Anytime Dining' feature, offering traditional or casual dining options in many of the Emerald Princess restaurants.
There is a huge variety of entertainment onboard Princess Cruises' Emerald Princess with a choice of lounges, bars and restaurants in which to enjoy evenings at sea. Suspended at 150 feet above sea level, guests are able to appreciate spectacular views from the Emerald Princess' Skywalker's Lounge & Club.
Passengers aboard the Emerald Princess will be delighted with the poolside 'Movies Under the Stars' programme. Guests can experience the enchantment of an outdoor movie theatre whilst relaxing with cushions, blankets and free popcorn. The 300 ft movie theatre also features the Princess Cruises' hallmark poolside service to ensure complete guest satisfaction.
Leisure amenities on the luxurious Emerald Princess include the Asian inspired Lotus Spa, a sanctuary of calm and tranquillity, as well as an ocean-view gym. There is a nine-hole putting green and golf simulator, jogging track, 5 fresh water pools and 7 bubbling hot tubs.
Guests will of course be indulged by Princess excellence throughout their Emerald Princess cruise holiday, with little extras, such as 24 hour room service and chocolates on your pillows, to enjoy along the way.
