Our first river cruise and we thought it was excellent. The food was very good and the service was extremely attentative. In comparison, we also did a week long Mediterranean cruise on a major cruise line and the food on this Emerald River Cruise was much better. The menu highlighting the region we were visiting each day was a nice option. The fruit plate for dessert instead of a rich dessert ...

Thoroughly enjoy our (first) river cruise. Loved the fact that it catered for the quite active (with bikes & extra hikes) as well as the less able (with slow walking tour options) & was a 'no young children' cruise. Food, wine & staff were excellent. Every day there was a tour of some sort (bus, walking & often both), but there were also extra optional tours available. Did the extra Viennese ...

We absolutely loved our cruise. The ship and the staff were excellent. Beautiful decor, delicious meals and plenty of food! Our cabin was very comfortable and spotless. The itinerary of onshore excursions were well thought out and covered a great deal. Visiting villages along the way was a highlight. There could have been a bit more in the way of activities on the ship however after a day ashore ...

This was our first time with Emarald, but not our first river cruise. It was a larger ship than we are used too, carrying 200 passengers. Boy did we know it. The noise levels during dinning were of the scale. Conversation were like shouting matches. On other cruises we have enjoyed getting to know other passengers around the dinner table,however it was impossible to do this on this ...

Ship sailed out of Amsterdam minus one engine. That was only the start. Seemed that we had to stop for Technical Stops to try to get parts to fix. Finally fixed and ship runs into bottom of Rail Bridge causing damage to upper deck and prohibiting us from using top deck. This put the cruise itinerary behind schedule and consequently we didn't get to spend a lot of free time in ports. But the crew ...

The best thing about this cruise was the great food and exceptional service. The staff and crew could not have been more helpful, treating everyone of the 100 passengers with the utmost respect and kindness.. Several of us were elderly so the listening devices supplied for excursions were very helpful, and assistance to get up and down the slippery slanting gangway was very much appreciated. I ...

The good - decent boat, food and drink with excellent service from the crew. Fellow passengers were lovely. The bad: * the boat was stuck above Lyon for the whole week on the Saone due to high water sailing up and down between Chalon Sur Saone and Villefranche and Trevaux. This was not the expensive itinerary paid for. * coached to Tournon and the replacement excursions of Vienne, wine ...

A++ to all the crew, who were very attentive and kind, helping those who had mobility issues wherever possible. For us, the slow walking groups for shore excursions were just right. Sadly, there were some loud and rude passengers who made the dinner dining experience difficult for those of us who wanted to chat and relax. No fault of the attentive staff, as the service, food and wine were over ...

We loved the wonderful service on board the Emerald Sky. All the crew were so attentive to our needs. The Chef and kitchen staff were so great concerning my Gluten-Free and Dairy-Free diet. Free wine with meals was awesome and so was the coffee bar. We also enjoyed the excursions each day. Our cruise director was amazing and gave us port talks the day before we visited something so we knew ...

Disappointed on the Douro River.

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

The food and staff where fantastic. We were very disappointed that we didn't get to do the entire cruise. The reason that was relayed to the passengers was the water levels where to high to go through the lock system. On Day 3 we made it about half way up the Douro river and it stopped. We were of the understanding when we went to an information session prior to booking the cruise that ...
