Emerald Princess Organized Activities, Lectures & Games
The Emerald Princess features a variety of activities throughout the cruise to keep you busy and entertained. They range from lectures about the upcoming ports of call, Wii Sports tournaments, wine tasting classes, and gambling "how to" classes, to bingo. "Newlywed Game" style game shows can be really entertaining as they mix newlyweds with not-so-newlyweds! There are also a whole host of poolside games that the staff of Princess has dreamt up .Prizes for the winners range from cash and champagne to genuine imitation plastic gold model ships. Yes, some of the "lectures" do have a retail / infomercial feel to them (how to buy jewels, which shore excursions we offer, etc.). The gathering place on the Emerald Princess is the Piazza located on Deck 5(Plaza). Magic tricks, chocolate demos and impromptu comedy can be part of the daily routine.
The best way to find out what is going on for the day is to read the Princess Patter.
