Careful Planning Required
Graham Fennell | March 22, 2018 | Princess Cruises | Emerald Princess
Overall the ship, the food and the staff were excellent. we thought the entertainment was mediocre.
The destinations visited were very good with plenty of time in each port to explore the island.
I post this as a warning to British tourists that the Princess Line do not particularly cater for the British.
We were made aware just a few days before disembarkation that we would have to leave the ship by 10am and our flight from Miami to London was not until 9pm the same evening, we were taken straight from the ship to the airport, and unable to check in our luggage. As almost all flights from Miami are overnight I would advise arranging a further nights stay in a hotel.
A further problem was encountered when our BA flight was delayed by 45 minutes thus resulting in us missing our connecting flight to Manchester. creating a further delay of 4 hours Overall make sure if you are caching a connection there is at least two hours between flights.
