Finding a Quiet Place on the Emerald Princess
The Emerald Princess features a quite a variety of workshops,shows and games for your enjoyment. But, if what you really want is a place to read a good book and just relax onboard the Emerald, we suggest the Sanctuary, the Library, Lotus Spa, and the Chapel. Usually before 9:00 AM, most of the public areas (save the pool areas) are not crowded. Also, keep in mind the ship pretty much empties out when it is in a port of call. Plus, when the ship is in port, is the time to take advantage of discounts at the Spa and get some serious rest and relaxation. If you are looking for quiet onboard the ship, port days are a great time to be onboard the Emerald Princess.
