Very disappointed

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Emerald Azzurra

The ship is beautiful, and the crew are fantastic, but that’s where it ends. The food is absolutely terrible, in some cases inedible. The entertainment was horrible, one female singer every night strumming on a guitar whose voice was not very pleasant. The port docks were lousy, full of cranes, containers and tractor trailers. I would definitely not recommend this cruise at all. It’s expensive ...

Even though it’s been a mild winter we were ready for some real sun;our preferred departure point in the Caribbean is Puerto Rico; the available Yacht Cabin on the Emerald Sakara sealed the deal. Our itinerary was unremarkable for a yacht: Vieques and Culebra in Puerto Rico followed by St. Barts, St. Maarten, Jos Van Dyke, Virgin Gorda and then back to San Juan for a short free time followed by ...

Size of boat great but many caveats

6-10 Cruises • Age 70s

Our cruise selection was governed by the itinerary and size of ship. Pros: We loved the size of the ship, there is a great deal of public space and we never felt crowded. Embarkation and disembarkation at ports is very simple. Staff were all amazing and made our trip, especially Gibril, Joel, Guen and Casalyn. Great to be able to visit engine room, kitchen and bridge Washers and ...

Not a luxury cruise

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

We were not impressed with Emerald Cruises. The food was nothing special, and the excursions were few and mostly of little interest. The suites were poorly designed -- even the more expensive ones. Our 2-room suite and extra large balcony was only 40 inches wide and 24 feet long -- most of which was NOT useable; and there was only one tiny table and 2 very small chairs on the entire stretch. ...

Our recent Caribbean cruise aboard the Emerald Azzurra was nothing short of fantastic. The ship's stunning beauty and impeccable cleanliness exceeded our expectations, creating a comfortable and enjoyable experience. The half-full cruise fostered a friendly atmosphere among both passengers and the crew. The selection of ports and smaller spots added charm to our journey, and the availability of ...

Emerald Sakara, profoundly disappointing

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

Our suite was fine but multiple technical issues, toilet did not flush reliably, at times no hot water, HVAC frequently did not work producing hot humid air, TV often would not connect to ships network. No safety briefing, we had to ask about lifejackets and muster station. Food quality was extremely (read extremely) disappointing, no fresh seafood, extremely salty soup, very poor preparations, ...

Fantastic cruise, we thoroughly enjoyed our time on the Sakara...she is absolutely beautiful and the crew were outstanding....We had an Oceanview suite (the most economical option) and loved our cabin...plenty of space, loads of storage, large bathroom, great movie selection and super comfy bed.. The facilities on-board were spectacular...loved the marine toys! The food was wonderful, ...

We chose this cruise line and time as it suited our time preference from Amsterdam to Budapest. The Luna is a new ship and it far exceeded our expectations The meals and food available is quite extent. We didn’t get a drinks package as we don’t drink too much but it probably is worth it if you do like a drink or two We had to change ships to the Destiny due to the low river levels ...

Enjoyed the Luna. Carla and many many others work very hard (hope they get paid enough). Food was well prepared, fresh, appealing and LOADS OF CHOICES! Something for everyone. Clean thru out - from rooms to hallways. Wasn’t so fond of docking a lot during day with one and sometimes 2 ships on either side. Rhine wasn’t (in my opinion as lovely as Danube). Included excursions were well planned ...

This was my second Emerald Cruise and I was not disappointed. The crew were friendly and knowledgeable and made me feel very welcome. The rooms were clean and well appointed. The pool was divine. The food was out of this world. The evening entertainment was great. The excursions were terrific. The trip was well organised from beginning to end and I felt I could be as relaxed or as active as I ...
