I would like to thank Bolsover for the lovely gift of a bottle of champagne. It gave us the perfect start to our holiday. My first impression of Emerald Princess was that it lacked the elegance of Queen Victoria or Queen Elizabeth. This feeling was confirmed throughout the holiday, for example plastic plates in The Horizon Court. My husband also missed having a sommelier in the main restaurants. Having said this, we did enjoy ‘Anytime Dining’, which was the main reason for choosing this cruise.
