First Time Cruiser • Age 40s

Originally booked 3 years ago we stuck with Emerald and finally went on the holiday last week. Beautiful ship, very modern and clean. Lovely professional and attentive staff. Great pool, food and service in general. How the team coped with all the COVID PCR tests and completing online locator forms I don't know but they were so helpful with this extra aspect. We enjoyed all the places we visited ...

A friend had sailed on Emerald Waterways cruises in the past so I joined her on this Danube River Cruise with 2 other friends. We used our local tour agent to book and organized all the flights etc. She had her husband traveled with us on the cruise as well. We were the maiden voyage after 18 months of not sailing due to Covid. We had a hiccup in that the river was too high to sail for a ...

This was our third river cruise with Emerald having chosen it based on our previous experiences with the company. We certainly made the right choice. From start to finish everything was 10 out of 10, the service, the itinery, transfers etc. Emerald certainly know how to do river cruising. We had a city break in Lisbon before the cruise and the transfer from the airport and subsequent ...

We were originally booked to do the Danube, but when restrictions were coming in because of the epidemic we switched to the Douro. Having had a wonderful holiday with Emerald before, it was our first choice for this one. We were not disappointed. You are looked after incredibly well from the moment you are collected at the airport. The staff work incredibly hard and always provide the most ...

We have been fortunate to have travelled with Emerald previously and have really enjoyed the experience, have to say this is without doubt the best. Hard to identify why but scenery and the fantastic crew stand out for mention. From the moment we stepped onto the Ship we felt comfortable and well looked after, the service levels are just right, not pushy but just right. The staff and I mean ...

This cruise was postponed from last year. I cannot fault both Emerald's UK operation or that on board. When our flight out was delayed by a technical fault ten minutes from boarding that meant we would miss our connection in Lisbon, I received a phone call from Emerald re-assuring me that our airport transfer was being re-arranged to meet the revised arrival time. Night time sailing is not ...

We chose this cruise because it was what we could afford. But we got so much more than what we paid for. The cruise director Patricia looked out for all of us, making sure whatever we needed was taken care of. Not just us, everyone. There were people with special challenges, other normal (like me) and very active people who all had their needs met. The activities director Charlotte is a fun ...

Starting with the welcome on board as well the attentiveness of all the staff who worked well as a team. The catering was very good with a wide selection of hot and cold foods. The cabins were ...

This was chosen as it was a special offer. What an incredible choice, the cabin was very good even though it was the cheapest available, the cabin was always clean. The food was very good, the buffets had a wide choice of food available and the evening menus always had a variety that could satisfy anybody. the tours at each stop were provided with local guides who spoke good English and the ...
