Not sailed on her recently but we've been on her twice and she's a beautiful ship. Beautiful decor, lots of bars, lots of places to eat, and there's always a quiet place to relax

Just off two weeks ago. An excellent cruise with a friendly engaged crew. Especially thought the Vines, SHARE and Adagio staff were fantastic.

Sailed the Emerald for 14 days last Sept. in Europe & 3.5 years ago on a TA.

Really enjoyed the ship. Love the aft pool -- adults only!

The "3 sisters" (Ruby, Emerald, Crown) are my favorites.

Sailed on Emerald this past February/March from Auckland to Sydney and we had an incredible time. The ship was in excellent condition and the staff was top-notch. Food was impeccable, and we particularly enjoyed our meals at SHARE and The Salty Dog.

Just got assigned to cabin B709 on Emerald. 123 days out I'm a bit surprised to have a cabin assignment. We had a BF gty and ended up in a BD cabin. Not bad although for some weird reason I would prefer a Port side cabin. I think we will enjoy sailing on Emerald. I liked Crown which is the same class of ship. Especially liked Adagio.

Have started to look at the California Coastal from Vancouver, round trip.

Thank you.
Too many cruise choices!
My daughter and I are booked for the California Coastal in September. If you decide to do it, be sure to join the roll call. There's a couple of good videos on You Tube that do a nice tour of the ship, you might find them helpful.

I’m curious. What is Adagio? I’ve not heard anyone talk about that before.

It is a bar/lounge next to the Share restaurant (former Sabatini's location) on deck 16.

It's also the Bar that has the unhosted LBGT every night.

Sailed Emerald on Caribbean itinerary few years ago and South America in January 2018. A great ship with fantastic crew. HC lay out not so good compared with Royal but no big deal.

Best cabin steward we ever had on Emerald this year.
