The Emerald Princess has numerous bars, lounges, and night clubs. Each attracts a different mix of passengers, and anyone sailing on the Emerald Princess should be able to find a good time.

Skywalkers Night Club is a modern club perched high atop the ship on deck 18 aft. By day, Skywalkers offers a spectacular view from its floor-to-ceiling windows. After dark and late into the evening, Skywalkers is a lively nightclub with state-of-the-art lighting, sound and video effects.

The Adagio Lounge on deck 16 is one of my favorites. Its location next to Sabatini's Italian Restaurant makes this New York-style piano bar a good place to gather before or after dinner. We ate our Sabatini's dessert and enjoyed an after dinner drink in Adagio one evening, and it was a great ending to the evening.

Aft on deck 7, Club Fusion blends the atmosphere of a New York-style nightclub/cabaret with a touch of Las Vegas-style games and excitement. The lounge features high-tech capabilities and appearance, with high-definition video screens throughout. Club Fusion has the largest dance floor on the Emerald Princess, and is very popular with the ballroom dancers.

The Explorer's Lounge on deck 7 has a fairly large stage, and features evening entertainment such as cabaret acts, singers, magicians and comedians.

Also on deck 7, Crooners Lounge overlooks the piazza and is a classic 1960s-style martini bar, with a specialty drink menu of more than 50 martini varieties. I didn't try them all, but I enjoyed sitting in Crooners in the daytime and watching the street performers below in the piazza.

Forward on deck 7 is the Wheelhouse Bar, a Princess tradition. The private club atmosphere is filled with Princess' maritime history and nautical memorabilia. It also has a large smoking area on the port side.
