Not to worry. Princess stacks up well against Carnival and RCCL. The passenger age average is a little older than the other two, but you will probably not notice. The food in the buffet venue I think is the best of the three, the dining room is about average. There is less of a "party atmosphere" than Carnival, and activities are about equal to RCCL.

:D Im currently on the Emerald and its fantastic! What a beautiful ship, has to be one of the best we've been on in years! Internet has been offered for free this entire cruise so far as it is having problems and is slower than dial-up. No complaints here, just need to be patient and when out at sea....what else can you be?!
Food and entertainment are great. Im in the Med and tomorrow, Monday we will be in Santorini Greece. We sailed from Venice Italy to the Greek islands, to Turkey to Rome.
Your going to have a great time....just wanted to let you know while Im currently on her and sitting at the internet cafe.
Im in an inside cabin, no window but its fine. It seems alittle bit larger than most inside cabins and plenty of room between wall and beds. Large closet and luggage area, minibar and very quiet. I got my cabin closest to the elevators and main stairwells and never hear anything coming or going.
The crew are all very nice and work very hard to please. The crew supervisors in the Lido Buffett and in main dining rooms all make sure that there staff stays busy and seems to be giving them tasks to do whenever he sees them just standing around. Very on the ball.
I have nothing negative to say about Emerald experience or ship.....sounds like you'll be on board soon enough!
