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 ...

Our highlight was Cruise Director Luis organising a live telecast of the Australian Football Grand Final along with accompanying hospitality.

The Cruise offered us access to particular countries / towns that we wished to visit. The Emerald Dawn offered the Cabin standard (Grand Balcony Suite) that appealed to us. A bit of a rocky start. The transport to ship was impossible to locate (for us and others). A broad range of excursions were offered. Recommend in particular the Skoda Tour ( of Slovakia in Communist times) and the ...

First time emerald cruisers an overall great experience. Have been on Viking for the Portugal through the Douro Valley. Food, cabin, staff and overall boat accommodations on par with Viking. Emerald could do better in the cultural experience we found the evening entertainment lacking just a bit. Although our activities director was fantastic but too many game nights. A German cooking class, or ...

Went on the cruise with friends. We had previously sailed with AMA on the Danube and Viking in Portugal. Food, cabins, staff and ships are all comparable with previous experiences. Overall was a fun trip and we enjoyed ourselves. Found that there are less active options ( we are in our late 50s) than our previous experiences. There are excursions but they seem to be rushed and less time allowed to ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

We had been planning a Rhine River cruise for years, but the pandemic pushed it off for a couple of years, so we were very excited to be finally able to embark on our first river cruise. The ship was lovely, very clean, nicely appointed stateroom with an exceptional amount of storage space, and a washroom that was just big enough. The shower was actually quite large, considering the size of the ...

8 close friends had originally booked this tour in late 2020. The Pandemic pushed it, and it took two years to finally sail. Veterans of many ocean cruises, this was our first river cruise. The Danube Explorer- Passau to Budapest with 3 added days in Prague and 3 more in Budapest. We had high expectations. A few were met. Many weren’t. I have to let you know, we are NOT picky travelers. As long ...

We booked this cruise because we got a good deal. But right from the beginning there was trouble. We put down our deposit, but then the deadline was approaching to pay the balance we could not get in touch. Our messages went unanswered and could not reach any person. We were getting nervous. Finally, a few weeks before the travel date we finally, after numerous calls, reached someone to pay. ...

This was our third cruise with Emerald. And it was totally up to our expectations. Sparkling ship with delightful, charming, attentive crew, all with a great sense of humour. Nothing is too much trouble. The food is delicious, and it is wonderful not to have to cook. The tours are fascinating, and the scenary beautiful. There weren't many English on this cruise, mainly American and Canadian. ...

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 ...
