I don't know if you know this CruzNut but the Emerald Princess is operated by Carnival Cruise Lines. When I had a problem with Carnival and said I would never sail with them I went online to find out which ships sail under the Carnival Umbrella.
Here is a quote from:
Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
"Princess Cruises is an American cruise line, based out of Santa Clarita, California, that operates cruise ships also shares the same building with Cunard Line headquarters. It is one of the many cruise lines operated by the Carnival Corporation. The company was made famous by The Love Boat TV series, in which two of its ships, the Island Princess and Pacific Princess were featured.[/code]"
