I am really supprised about the number of negative reviews of the Emerald Princess II. I visit Jekyll Island at least 2 times a year (sometimes more), and make it a part of my visits to go out on the ship. The management and staff are always helpful and friendly. The smoke problem several of the reviewers talked about is not nearly as bad as they would have you believe... in fact, on the majority of the cruises I have been on, most of the players do not smoke. I can honestly say that in the 20 plus years I have been going out on the ship, I am ahead in winnings (which makes it even more enjoyable). The food is good, it's a fun time and I would recommend the Emerald Princess II to anyone who enjoys gaming and a great time.
