We chose this cruise because of the value and description of experiences. All which came true. The service on board was wonderful...like being in a luxury hotel while cruising the river. All the stewards and crew were high service and hig quality oriented. The food was devine. The excursions and tours were filled with tons of information, the guides all had personalities, and hit on the key highlights. Also, a perfect amount of time for site seeing on your own. The extra activities were phenomenal and worth it. The accommodations on board were wonderful and comfortable. We loved the automatic window balcony for an open air experience when we wanted. This was our first cruise and we definitely made the right choice on the river as it was an experience that we could not have dreamed. I highly recommend as the overall experience is something I would do again for sure. Read Less

Honestly, we chose this cruise line because it was less expensive than some of the other luxury river cruise lines and because it had very good reviews overall. We were not disappointed all all and are very glad we chose Emerald Cruises and the Emerald Sun. The cruise was a great value and we didn't feel like we missed out on anything by paying a lower rate. The facilities and public rooms aboard the Emerald Sun a very nice and have an elegant look and feel. Our cabin was great...no complaints at all. They manage to squeeze a lot of room and amenities into a small space and still give us plenty of storage for our things. We really liked the cabin-wide picture window that lowered half-way down to let the outside in. We didn't miss a balcony at all and think this is a much better way to maximize space. The crew worked very hard to give us a good experience and almost all of them were very friendly. The food was basic, but was well presented. One thing to note...if you're looking for the typical big cruise line food extravaganza with midnight buffets and unlimited food all day, this may not be for you. Food was available only during breakfast, lunch and dinner, which was fine with us, but may not be for everyone. Of course there were bar, coffee, and soft drink services available throughout the day. Ports of call on this cruise were quite lovely. I love the walking tour concept...it's a great way to get a feel for a location. The headsets they have for the walking tours are great also, allowing you to hear the tour guide even if there's a lot of noise in the area. The only stop on our cruise I didn't care for was Bratislava, which feels like a place that wants to be a tourist destination, but doesn't know how to do it yet. I also enjoyed going through the locks, I think there were more than 20 of them on the portion of the Danube we travelled...very interesting thing to experience. Read Less
