Ship Facts: Viking Emerald Review (by Cruise Critic!)
Imperial Jewels of China
This was a trip of a lifetime. We chose Viking River Cruises after enjoying their Waterways of the Czars cruise. Our main guide was very knowledgeable and engaging young man. His sense of humor and his care to all of us was outstanding.

What a great way to see the Great Wall of China and Tiananmen Square.

Our hotels in Beijing, Xian, and Shanghai were 5 star. Our buses were clean.

We had a lower cabin on the boat but the it was identical to the upper deck ones. It also had a veranda. The views were still awesome on the lower level but we usually stayed on the upper deck when cruising. The staff entertained us one night ; they were so talented!! They knew your name after the first night of the cruise.

The Li River and Guilin are not to be missed. It is just like the old China that we remembered from pictures in magazines. Hong Kong was exciting to see also. We did most of it with another couple who had been before and knew the ropes.

Viking takes care of their passengers. Several people needed medical care and the guides stayed with them, assisting in the language differences and transportation issues. Absolutely no complaints with this wonderful cruise line from food to accommodations to every aspect of our trip.

We are taking our third cruise with Viking and will stay with them in the future!!
