A Day On The Emerald Princess

I've lived in Southampton for the last six years and there is hardly a day that goes by where I don't see a ship in the dock, or hear the sounds of the horns playing tunes before their next journey (Which I love). So when Princess Cruises invited myself and several other bloggers from SotonBloggers a chance to walk around the Emerald Princess I was definitely interested. Having never been on a Cruise ship before I was excited to see what people get to experience while they are traversing from one country to another.

The experience was for the majority of the day, so I got to arrivals early so that I could get checked in and meet/catch up with the other bloggers that where also in attendance. We then made our way through security and on to the ship. It was like going into different world. The Emerald Princess has recently had a multi million pound refurbishment and you could see this as soon as you stepped aboard. 

We started in one of the bars and were offered complimentary cocktails and bakery goods (The best breakfast). We then went on the tour starting in the Share restaurant, going on to view the cabins, on board cinema and then when up to the upper decks to see The Sanctuary spa. In tropical conditions this would be the ultimate spa, where you can top up your tan while enjoying a facial. We then ended our tour by going into the Galley. Once the tour was complete, we all sat down to have a three course meal lunch and had another chat. The food was amazing and the service we had was friendly and attentive. After this it was sadly time to depart as the Emerald Princess was about to embark on an 11 day cruise to the Canary Islands. 

I loved the time I spent aboard and honestly wished I was one of the people going away for a few days to paradise.
