Fabulous cruise on the Danube.

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Emerald Destiny

Krayne66
First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

It has always been a "bucket list" thing for me to do. The size of the ship (less than 200 passengers), time away (14-15 days) and iconic destinations were significant considerations in choosing this cruise. It was a fantastic experience! The activities and places visited were fabulous and we had a great time strolling about taking the included walking tours with the local guides and the local ...

Fell below expectations

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Emerald Destiny

After some comparison shopping, we chose Emerald, based on their brochures and the promotional campaign. It looked like a nice, high-end product and it included gratuities and extended beverage package (along with options that other companies also offer). We sailed for two weeks from Budapest to Amsterdam in the second half of August. Once we found the ship, the check-in was smooth and well ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

This was my first river cruise and I did not know what to expect. Everything was perfect! The ship was beautiful, comfortable and spacious. Our cabin was clean and comfortable. Sailing was very smooth and relaxing. Each day we participated in a tour at the various ports of call along the river. There was entertainment each evening in the lounge. The food was gourmet and delciious. Patricia, ...

Very pleasant trip with excellent customer service.

We had a very enjoyable week on board the ship. The staff were, without exception, extremely friendly and helpful. The head chef was - as I called him - a magician. His food was excellent. The entertainment was really good on board, with a wonderful Entertainment Manager Noel. We also particularly enjoyed the Concert in the Bruchsal Palace. The places we visited and the tours we undertook ...

Our first River Cruise

Review for a Europe - All Cruise on Emerald Destiny

Elviriab71c
First Time Cruiser • Age 80s

We wanted to cruise the Danube as it would take us to an area of Europe that we had not visited before. Our cruise got off to a very bad start as when we arrived in Munich from Birmingham ,having been up since 3am in the morning , our transfer to the boat was not available , and we were left for over 90 mins waiting for transport to arrive. The previous day we had been told that the cruise would ...

Beautiful boat, lovely staff but food a disappointment

Review for a Europe - All Cruise on Emerald Destiny

totpotpink
2-5 Cruises • Age 50s

We chose this cruise because of the route and the fact that the boat looked modern and had only 90 cabins so felt it would be a more personalised experience. Many we spoke to also felt the experience was let down by the food which at best could be described as acceptable. Quite frankly for a week’s trip that cost over £6,000 for just two, we felt sure we would get to enjoy amazing and memorable ...

Danube cruise. Budapest to Regensburg

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Emerald Destiny

2-5 Cruises • Age 50s

We had done the Rhine cruise and wanted to try another river. The Danube passes through many countries so we chose that for our trip. We loved the cruise and all the places we visited. The staff on board were wonderful and the ship was very comfortable. The food was very good with lots of choice. The excursions were well organised and interesting. The concert in Vienna was outstanding and we also ...

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Emerald Destiny

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

We got off to a very rocky start! I guess Emerald was "hacked" and there was no communication for several months. We arrived in The Netherlands one week before embarking, and they had still not sent our packet to us. The travel agent we used was getting QUITE frustrated and would call Emerald....only to be put on hold for hours, then disconnected. Ugh. We finally received our paperwork ...

Background Information. We booked this cruise before the pandemic, originally to take place in Sep/Oct 2020. Owing to Covid it was postponed twice and we eventually upgraded and re-booked for April 2022. The Emerald/Scenic staff we dealt with were excellent and really helpful. Travel to Port of Embarkation. We booked a taxi to Heathrow (pity Emerald don't provide this as an optional extra) ...
