Emerald Princess vs. NCL Dawn for Christmas Cruise

Jump to last reply

We thought we might invite our kids (mid '20) to join us halfway (NOLA or Houston) for a Christmas cruise. While I would normally never cruise at Christmas, this is the only time of year that we can all manage to be together.

So, our choices are the Emerald Princess (3100 pax) out of Bayport (Houston, not Galveston) or the NCL Dawn (2300 pax) out of NOLA. The itineraries are basically the same although the NCL Dawn has only 2 sea days while the Emerald Princess has 3 sea days. We have never sailed on NCL, but we have sailed twice on Princess and loved it.

We probably won't be able to afford balcony cabins since we're taking the kids, so we won't have the luxury of "getting away from the crowds". We enjoy trivia and other games, good evening shows, and sitting by a quiet pool. We like the pub lunches and afternoon teas on Princess, but otherwise we don't care about the food. (If we don't have to cook, it's a good meal.)

I would appreciate any feedback on which cruise you think we'd enjoy more. Thank you.
