Emerald Princess Cruise Blog with TONS of photos, videos! Caribbean 10-Day Jan 18-28

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! We just got back from our cruise aboard the Emerald Princess from January 18-28, 2014 and I've started to write about it on our cruise blog called Justin Plus Lauren - it's where I blog about all of our trips! We have so many photos and videos, plus many stories to tell from our cruise. It would be awesome if you would like to check it out. I gather so much information and travel tips from these forums, so it is my pleasure to share everything back with the Cruise Critic community from our vacation. :)

 

Please also if you have any questions about the Emerald or any Princess questions in general, feel free to ask them here and I would be happy to try my best to answer them!

 

It will take me a long while to post everything since we have 11 days worth of pictures, journal entries and video to sort through, so bare with me! I'll try my best to get everything posted as soon as possible and will post here when I have new entries.

 

The first blog entry is about our flight from Toronto to Florida, waking up bright and early to embark on our adventure!

Thanks for posting. Enjoyed the read so far. Can't wait to hear about the Emerald.

 

Thanks! Yes, the Emerald stuff is soon to come - just gotta get thru the pre-cruise hotel stay first :) We enjoyed the hotel stay but of course, the trip was all about the cruise :D

I've posted the second blog post! It is all about our pre-cruise stay at our hotel in Fort Lauderdale - Cambria Suites. If you're thinking about staying overnight before (or after!) cruising in Ft. Lauderdale, I've posted a review of this hotel (we loved it there!). Hope everyone enjoys! Will be getting to the posts about the actual cruise very soon!

Thanks everyone!

 

Here's a brand new blog post, and the last pre-cruise one before boarding the Emerald! We ate a restaurant called Sublime in Fort Lauderdale and it was amazing!

Next blog posts will be all about boarding the ship and embarking on our 10 day adventure aboard the Emerald!

Yes it was!!! Can't wait to write about that day.

I've had to work long hours this weekend including Monday (2pm - 2am ugh!) So I won't be blogging again until Tuesday. Can't wait to start up again then!

 

Thanks everyone so far for reading, wish we were still on board!

Alrighty....the first blog post of the actual cruise has been posted! All Aboard the Emerald Princess! Getting on board was a breeze and before we knew it, we were in our cabin -an aft cabin on the Riviera deck, R709.

I'm going through more photos today and it is keeping me warm on this chilly day! Thankfully I have the day off work but Justin had to go in....there is a big snowstorm today in the Toronto area and all I can see out the window is snow blowing around. Brrrr! Stay warm!
