Hi tinab, welcome to Cruise-Chat. The Emerald Princess is an awesome ship. We had a standard balcony and had plenty of room for 2, 4 would be tight. However, if you're like most, it would be minimal when everyone would be in the cabin at the same time. Also, I had an inside on the Caribbean (Riviera Deck) that was very roomy. But, I definitely prefer the balcony. Here's
a link to some pictures if you'd like to take a look, just click on the Emerald Princess album. I'm going to miss not cruising on Princess next year, but my budget just can't do it. (come on lottery
). Hope you have a wonderful time!
