Emerald Princess

View Cruise Deals

Emerald Princess is one of the jewels in the Princess crown and sailing from Southampton makes an ideal choice for your next cruise holiday. Princess Cruises launched the Emerald Princess in April 2007 against the beautifully dramatic cityscape of Rome, before embarking on her maiden voyage through the Med and Greek Isles. In 2015 she received an extensive update and refurbishment, introducing new dining venues, a refreshed gym suite, luxury furnishings and more. Guests sailing onboard Emerald Princess can now enjoy the delights of the Salty Dog Gastro Pub alongside the popular Sabatini's Italian Trattoria.

New Princess Luxury Beds are now onboard and have been specifically designed alongside experts to provide the ultimate night of sleep at sea. Emerald Princess has also been refitted with new interconnecting staterooms, a great choice for families wishing to have adjacent rooms.
