During the search for my family cruise I looked at the Carnival Vista every day. Then something spectacular came about with MSC, they had a new ship, the MSC Seaside being built that would challenge the Vista completely. I looked that ship up and immediately became attached. This is the most diverse cruise line and that I appreciated that the most. Not to mention the rates weren’t too bad either. Kids really sail FREE. That was amazing! Due to the Seaside’s large stature, there was limited movement and I didn’t hear not one guest complain about motion sickness.
I picked this Princess “7 Day Western Caribbean” cruise because I live in Houston, so it’s a local trip, and my friend’s birthday was in November, and she has never been on a cruise. I boarded the ship very excited about the stops in Honduras, Belize, and Cozumel!
With its gorgeous beaches, crystal-blue waters, clear skies and sun, the Caribbean is not only a picturesque backdrop for a tropical vacation, but a place where one can kick back and unwind, relax, and forget about regular worries.
The Emerald Princess is just that, a jewel within herself. She was birthed in 2007 and is one of the largest cruise ships in the Princess Cruises fleet. She is also one of the most beautiful cruise ships that I have had the opportunity to sail on. Her decks are all very well lighted with beautiful marble flooring.
