Staying Informed on the Emerald Princess
You can stay up to date on all the activities happening onboard the Emerald Princess through the ship's newsletter, Princess Patter, which is placed in your room along with the towel animal of the day. The newsletter lets you plan your next day's activities. The Emerald Princess Patter also has a segment called "What's Happening Today" which is a quick reference guide to the times and places of the various activities. Put it in your pocket for quick access. There is a "Cruise Channel" that gives the highlights of the ship and will replay certain activities that you may have missed.
Finally, the Cruise Director, the emcee for the cruise who will be a public presence throughout the cruise, will usually make the day's announcements in the morning. They are broadcast in the public areas of the ship and on a video channel in your room. Make sure you are tuned to the appropriate channel. The Fun Zone, the home of kids' activities, has their own newsletter detailing specific times and places of the kids' events. It's available just outside the pick-up/drop-off areas for the kids.
