We are going to the southern Caribbean and wanted to know which side of the ship we want to be on. Which side of the ship is up against the dock?

Hi kl630, welcome to Cruise-Chat! Congratulations on your up-coming cruise! I hope you enjoy the Emerald as much as we did, she's a beautiful ship. If you get to go to the Crown Grill (extra fee restaurant), be sure to order the Black and Blue onion soup. It is wonderful. Also, check out the Sanctuary. It's a wonderful spot for taking pictures while coming into port.

It really doesn't matter which side you select. It will all depend on how many ships are in port when you get there. Sometimes they'll dock on the port side, sometimes on the starboard side. We've been on both and it really hasn't made any difference. On our Emerald cruise it was about 50/50.

Hope you have a marvelous cruise and enjoy Princess as much as we do. They're our favorite line, so far Best wishes!

Congratulations on your marriage, too! The Crown is a good sized ship, but the Emerald dwarfs her. She is just amazing.

Oh, I almost forgot. On deck 5, I believe, they had a cafe type area. There were sandwiches and desserts. Some were complimentary, some were extra charge. But, there was gelato. You could get 3 scoops for $1.50 and it was heavenly

Penny, Are you thinking of a different ship? The Crown and Emerald are only a year apart in age and have the same stats. 113,000 tons, 15 decks, etc.

The Emerald looked a lot larger to me. The Ruby and Emerald are sister ships. Thought the Crown and the Star were sister ships.

Penny,
The Caribbean, Crown, Emerald and Ruby are all sister ships belonging to the Caribbean Class. The Grand, Golden, and Star are all sister ships belonging to the Grand Class.

Emerald and Crown are identical (or pretty close to it - decor a little different - but not much) - we have been on both and I liked the fact that I did not have to relearn yet another deck plan. Ha ha. I love the Cafe on the 5th deck. They have a great greek salad!!!!!
