Wonderful crew

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 ...

Booked fall 2021 as only cabins our travel agent in USA could find. Overall all, more than pleased. Food was excellent and staff was friendly and professional. Everything well thought out and well organized. Panorama Balcony Cabins on "A" deck don't really have balconies and getting in and out of bathroom tight. But we spent little time in our room so not an issue. Chef's Recommendation ...

Just returned from the holiday. Actual port of embarkation was Giurgiu, near Bucharest, Romania but this was not an option on the Cruise Critic drop down menu, Budapest was where we disembarked. This was our fifth river cruise and the first with Emerald. This cruise was excellent. Emerald looked after us extremely well and the service, be it from the cabin stewards, reception, bar service, ...

Emerald May be considered the best value in river cruises, but they completely exceeded our expectations in the ship, cleanliness, food, and excursions. The crew was really outstanding and exceptionally friendly and helpful - and that includes everyone! We could tell that they were happy and enjoyed one another and their jobs. The ship is modern with glass and mirrors (which are kept sparkling ...

We booked this cruise last year (May2021) and this was our first trip abroad since Covid. The ship was very stylish; the cabins were smaller than we're used to but perfectly adequate but you had be sharing with someone you knew VERY well as the bathroom has a sliding door which does not mute "bodily functions"! Unnecessary drawn out transfer from Lisbon to Porto depart 8.30am arrive 4.00pm. We ...

Just spent a most enjoyable cruise on this fabulous ship. Cruising up the Adriatic Sea from Dubrovnik to Venice. Being a small ship with only 100 passengers she can sail right up close to town centers and in Venice sailing up the main canal where all other large cruise liners are banned. The ship is designed to very standards with great attention to detail, and extensive use of polished ...

We chose Emerald based on the excellent cruise of the Moselle and Rhine 3 years ago. We booked the Duoro and chose the cabin and stuck with the booking throughout covid problems and are so glad we did. The relaxed nature of River cruising is perfect and to mix with people who are mostly f the same age makes for a comfortable atmosphere. The Douro cruise is at a much slower pace than some ...

We had done the Rhine cruise and wanted to try another river. The Danube passes through many countries so we chose that for our trip. We loved the cruise and all the places we visited. The staff on board were wonderful and the ship was very comfortable. The food was very good with lots of choice. The excursions were well organised and interesting. The concert in Vienna was outstanding and we also ...

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. ...
