We have previously been on Emerald Cruise and very much enjoyed it. Selected this cruise as hadn't been to the places it visited. Was a little disappointed and had not realised that top deck would be out of bounds so much due to low bridges, it would of been nice to of been advised of this in advance although don't beleive it would of changed our minds about booking. As we were a party of 6 it ...

I originally booked this cruise in 2019 for October 2020 for my husband and I to celebrate our 18th wedding anniversary. We ended up actually taking it in October 2022 for our 20th, which was a lovely way to celebrate. We had a wonderful time and were really impressed by Emerald, the Liberte, and the crew. I'll break this down into separate categories below. Passengers. The passengers were ...

What's not to love about a Rhone river cruise. Emerald does it in style. Everything about this cruise makes it special. There is at least one included activity per day and you see every port. The food is delicious, varying and always an occasion. Top of it all is the staff. On our particular cruise there were only 96 passengers and a crew of 47. NO where else can you get that kind of attention to ...

We and another couple chose this cruise on the basis of a Travelzoo offer. The pre-cruise period was frustrating due to KLM flight changes and the poor response of Emerald to the issues this created. As our outward flights via Schipol Airport were brought forward by a day Emerald arranged an overnight stay. Instead of putting us in a hotel close to the airport they put us in a hotel in the ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

I was invited by some friends who had cruised with Emerald on prior trips. There were 12 of us cruising together. The ship was well appointed, leaving nothing extra to want. The crew is what really made this trip special. When our time onboard was over, I felt like I was leaving friends behind. The captain, hotel manager, restaurant manager and the rest of the crew were top-notch. The ...

Chose this cruise as we have not explored this area of southern France before. The cabin proved to be adequate and was kept tidy & clean by hardworking housekeepers. Food and drink were generally very good with a couple of excellent exceptions, proving what could be achieved with a bit more effort. Staff were generally helpful and courteous, but there was always a feeling that full ...

Lost 2.5 days of a 7 day cruise

Many friends and some family members recommended this cruise, and so we invested not far short of £4,000 and booked through an online travel agent. Emerald made all the travel decisions and booked flights to Marseille via Paris. A 70 minute delay in leaving Manchester caused us to miss the connecting flight and so we arrived at Marseille 15 hours and 10 minutes late. Joining the boat at 04.00 ...

This was my third Emerald cruise - love the boats, food, service, etc. This one was up to standard on the boat - problem was getting there and back home - not Emerald's fault! Delay leaving Manchester meant missing connection in Paris to Marseille. Once finally got there, my luggage wasnt. Going home was worse - got to Paris okay, but five hour wait for connection to Manchester, which was ...

We chose this cruise as we were keen to try Provence and we were not disappointed. After two years of cancelled holidays and uncertain times, this cruise was a perfect return to river cruising. From the Captain, who was so approachable and turned his hand to anything, to the delightful cabin steward who came twice a day, every member of staff was welcoming, friendly and efficient. They all ...

Our second river cruise with Emerald and a third is booked. Very happy with all aspects of this immaculate ship and itinerary on the Rhone & Saone - the staff are the best with all our needs met. Our captain was very visible and available to chat and it was obvious he was a favourite with the staff too. If I was being picky I'd say that the evening meals could have been a little more imaginative. ...
