Emerald Princess: 113,561 Tons Of FOOD!

Before joining Emerald Princess I was told that the food onboard was superb. In fact, I was told that the food on all Princess vessels was superb and I really can’t disagree! Emerald Princess quite literally is 113,561 tons of FOOD!

There are many dining options onboard including the Crown Grill (Deck 7) and Sabatini’s (Deck 16) – both of which incur an extra charge of $25 per person, but are BOTH definitely worth experiencing – three main dining rooms: Da Vinci and Michelangelo for anytime dining and Botticelli for fixed dining. You will also find the Trident Grill and Pizza and Ice Cream Bar outside on Deck 15. Cafe Caribe and Horizon Court – buffet restaurants – which are also on Deck 15 and then there is the International Cafe on Deck 5, which is open 24-hours and serves sandwiches, fresh pasta and cakes. Don’t forget you also have the options of room service, tapas at the Vines Wine Bar and I did see a “Crab Shack” advertised once during my cruise. Is your tummy full up yet? 😉

I could sit and tell you a million things about the food, but of course I took photographs so that I can show you instead. What I do want to say though is that the selection of food available was very good, especially in the evening and at breakfast time. I think I actually managed to consume my entire body weight in shrimp and pizza over the course of 12 days. The Pizza was most certainly the best I have ever had at sea, but it had to be fresh out of the oven!

Now, time to let the images do the talking!
