Emerald Princess embarks from Port Everglades at Ft. Lauderdale, Florida on this 15 night Transatlantic Repositioning cruise at 4pm on Friday, April 18, 2014. She arrives at Southampton, England, her summer home port, on Saturday, May 3 at 7am. Along the way, the ship makes five port calls, all on the eastern side of the Atlantic. The ports are unique and the time at each port is much lengthier than most other cruises.
After six full days at sea, Emerald Princess makes her first and shortest stop at Ponta Delgada in the Azores Islands of Portugal. On Friday, April 25, Emerald is in port from 7am until 4pm before heading out to sea again for another two full days.
Emerald has two stops in Ireland on consecutive days. On Monday, April 28, she is docked at Cork, Ireland from 8am until 7pm. The following day, guests can experience a long day and a bit of the night in Dublin, Ireland with the ship in port from 10:30am until 10pm.
From Dublin, Emerald Princess takes its last full day at sea before hitting mainland Europe for her final two stops. On Thursday, May 1, Emerald docks at Brussels, Belgium from 8am until 6pm. The following day, it’s a stop on the English Channel at Le Havre, France. The final stop is the longest, arriving at Le Havre at 8am and departing at 9pm in order to cross the Channel to the final destination.
For a limited time and while there’s still space on the ship, an inside cabin on Emerald Princess for this Transatlantic cruise can be had for as low as $599 per person, based on double occupancy. There is an additional $135 in government fees and taxes. This brings the total for two for an inside stateroom to as low as $1,468.
Princess Cruises has a great offer for current and former members of the military in Canada and the United States. On cruises over 14 days in length, these brave souls qualify for a $250 onboard credit per stateroom. Remember, just one person in the cabin needs to have served. The catch is: you must submit an online form to Princess no later than 14 days prior to sailing. For this particular cruise, that 14 day window is coming up fast!
For this cruise, all suites are sold out already. Ocean View cabins start at $1,199 per person and staterooms with a balcony start at $1,399 per person. The same government fees and taxes apply, no matter the level of stateroom.
