What an outstanding cruise! No complaints. The boat, crew, tours, food were second to none. Very clean room with all you need to be comfortable. The food was top notch and as I have specific food needs, they met them and I felt very safe eating. The food was plentiful and the Chef Suggestions were always local or regional dishes. Nice touch. Wine pairings were very good, too. The crew ...

Did Budapest to Amsterdam originally scheduled on the Dawn but due to low water we were moved to the Sky. Since the boats are similar it was not an issue. The ship is modern and comfortable and the staff are excellent friendly and helpful. The passengers were mainly from Canada, Australia the US most in their 60s and up. Stayed in a Grand balcony suite which came with a separate balcony area plus ...

We wanted to see historic Europe in a guided carefree way. The actual cruise and destinations were awesome. We seen so much history and met some wonderful interesting people. Emerald really did a good job organizing the itinerary. However there was so much coughing and people that were very sick. The ambulance came to the ship 5 times and took people away. My wife contracted pneumonia and is still ...

My wife and I had been unable to due our traditional ocean cruising for a few years, and decided to splurge on a more expensive river cruise through several European countries we would normally not be able to visit. - note to future passengers: the rooms are almost exactly the same size, regardless of the cost. Choose wisely. The crew of the Emerald Sky were absolutely top notch, and I have ...

We chose this cruise as it would take us to places we have not been too, or places we would have never gone too. The scenery from the ship was mostly farmland and forest, but once on land there were many wonderful things to see. Food was very good, and the portions were smaller so you never left the table stuffed. The wait staff was excellent. My only concern was by day 4 people were ...

We received information regarding river cruises and the itinerary on the Emerald cruise Sky on the Danube caught our attention. Read the many previous cruisers reviews and it appealed to us. We decided to book it for our 40th wedding anniversary. Our booking agent rivercruise was very attentive until we booked the trip, then it was very difficult getting answers to our questions from her prior ...

We attended a local presentation and then booked a river cruise with Emerald. All of the ship's crew were very friendly and professional and made every aspect of the cruise very enjoyable. The food was amazing and there were always alternate choices if needed. The entertainment varied each evening and included special guests, such as local bands or accordion player or violin player. The daily ...

We chose this cruise purely as novices to Europe and wanting to explore as much as we could in a reasonable time. Starting in Budapest and finishing in Amsterdam it was as busy or not as you wanted it to be. We chose to do as much as we could to get the most out of our time. We did all included tours, a few “Active” tours and paid for 2 extra tours. Our days were full, fun and we learned a lot. ...

Went from Regensburg to Budapest. Boat was beautiful, crew friendly - absolutely bent over backwards to help and so kind. Food was delicious and you could go smart casual or just casual. Cabin comfortable and spotless, as was whole ship, which gleamed. Highlights were private concert in the Ludowicz Palace, Vienna, with champagne reception (take Euros cash for programme) and afternoon tea at ...

We have taken a number of ocean cruises, and this was our first river cruise. I had a meeting in Vienna, so we decided to fly to Bucharest and take the Danube cruise up river to Budapest. The rooms are extremely well designed. The drawers were deep enough to hold my suitcase, and there was enough clearance below the bed to fit my wife’s larger luggage. The food on board was quite good, ...
