Exceptional service and beautiful ship

We cruised on the Danube River on a special interest cruise with Anton Du Beke and Erin Boag. The ship is beautifully decorated, it's modern and very luxurious compared to some other river ships we docked with along the cruise. We stayed in a Panorama Balcony Suite and these are a great way to see the views as the large window can be opened all the way down so you can lean out and see ...

Had an amazing time sailing along the Danube. This was my first time on a river cruise and it is the perfect way to see so many beautiful cities in one trip. The Panorama Balcony Suite was beautiful with amazing views ever changing from the drop down balcony. The pool, bar and restaurant are all great spaces to relax and unwind, with attentive staff providing a wonderful and friendly ...

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 ...

An absolutely perfect cruise for a first-timer on a river cruise

The ship was beautifully detailed with spectacular views from many areas, including our stateroom. The views from the upper deck as well as the pool area were stunning. I spent many hours relaxing by the pool watching the scenery as the ship moved down the river. I opted out of a couple land tours to relax and was kept company by staff members anxious to attend to any needs. My only ...

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 ...

I took a group on Emerald Waterways in the past and had a wonderful experience. Emerald is great from start to finish - from the booking process to the actual cruise, everything was as stress free as possible and top notch! Our entire group had the absolute best time and we all loved the ship! I cannot say enough about how FABULOUS the cruise was! Every single person that worked on board the ...

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 ...

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 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 ...

Selected this river because it was on our bucket list. We chose Emerald Waterways because of the cities, rooms, dining, and price. We had an amazing cruise and a fabulous time. The cabin room was everything we wanted; plenty of room and very nicely appointed. The dining was pretty darn good. Breakfast buffet and made to order - you decide. Lunches were very much based upon the local ...
