Question Emerald Princess Any Good?

My family is booking a cruise for next spring and the one we want to go on is the Emerald Princess. I'm bringing my friend with me and we wanted to pick a cruise where we would have alot of fun. The cruise is kind of a sixteenth birthday present for both of us.
I've heard that Princess cruise lines has a bad teen program. Is this true?
Everything else about the cruise fits what we're looking for so i was really put down when i heard about the lack of fun for teens.

Hey what's up. I've been on Princess once, and the teen program was horrible. Hate to tell you but what you heard is correct, I thought the teen program was not good at all. Except for that the cruise was pretty good though.

Princess is very hit or miss. Tim (post above me) had a bad experience on Princess, but I can't say the same. I honestly liked the teen program, even kept a handful of friends from my sailing. Keep in mind though, the teen program isn't what makes the fun, it really falls to the people you meet onboard. A group of people can always come up with fun activities (without the "teen director"). I would like to hear how it goes for you though, because not too many of us have been on Princess, let alone come back to write about it.

We booked our cruise on the emerald princess last night. I forgot that most of us on my last cuirses didn't even spend much time in the teen center. Just all the bad posts about the cruise line made me think about it the wrong way. As long as we meet people the first night we should be okay. I will let all of you know how it goes when i get back.
