We went on the Delights of Duoro river cruise with Emerald in 2019 and we were impressed with the whole package including the ship, activities, crew, food and all other aspects of the journey. We decided to Re-book with Emerald on another river cruise the Delights of the Danube and I am glad to say was equally impressed with the whole experience. The flights were unfortunately delayed for a ...

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 ...

We always choose Emerald for our river cruises and have never been disappointed in them. The food is always good and varied, the staff are friendly and helpful, and the organisation of the tours and activities is always exceptional. The Shore Briefings every evening give the program for the next day, and there is a variety of activities available to suit all fitness levels. Yoga or Tai Chi ...

Our second Emerald experience and once again it surpassed all our expectations. The Portuguese crew were a delight; so proud of their beautiful country and wanting to do everything they could to make this a wonderful holiday. From the serenity of gentle cruising up the peaceful Douro to the trips to beautiful places such as Salamanca. Cannot fault anything. It was also a wonderful ...

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 ...

This was our fourth cruise with Emerald and we were not disappointed. The staff were superb, attending to our every needs with politeness and courtesy. The food and drink also could not be faulted. We visited some delightful towns and cities along the Rhine, all of them with history and the tour guides in these places were very knowledgeable. The bar and dining staff worked extremely hard, as ...

Chose this cruise to see how the old communist countries have fared.The Emerald Sky is a standard Emerald boat that on close inspection is starting to look slightly tatty. The onboard service, as usual, was exemplary. A suprise to me was the 40 degree heat at the end of June into July with humidity to match. This is energy sapping and full day excursions were arduous. Food,of course, depends on ...

We chose to sail from Budapest to Amsterdam on the Emerald Luna. Initially we chose Emerald because of their all inclusive policy and option of active activities in addition to the regular tours. We were initially apprehensive as Emerald's offices have been difficult to reach since they were hacked several months ago. However, we received our documents the week before by email and our flights to ...

We chose this cruise because we had travelled with Emerald before and wanted to explore the Rhine region. The itinerary was from Amsterdam to Basel and our cruise was the first of the season. A high percentage of the crew was new to river cruising and this showed in the quality of service in the restaurant - no shortage of enthusiasm and food quality was good but lack of training 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 ...
