Cruise was excellent. We picked the Classic Danube which included a three night stay in Prague. We were on the Emerald sky. The crew was exceptional along with the food. The ports were all interesting and the guides were very well ... Read more

Having done many ocean cruises we were very impressed with the Emerald river cruise. Everything was spotlessly clean. The quality and variety of food was impressive and the complementary wines were very good. The staff were friendly and ... Read more

A first ever boat cruise after a dozen sea cruises. Of course the facilities had to be fewer even though I have usually sailed on relatively small ships, 600-800 passengers. A bar pianist was really it or a movie in your cabin on the well ... Read more

We were apprehensive being our first cruise but needn't have been as everything was perfect. Our room was an Emerald Balcony Suite with a large picture window, which opened to half way. The bar across the middle did obscure your view ... Read more

Frequent sea cruisers but had never tried a river journey before and the Danube seemed a good place to start. I spoke with our usual very helpful Agent with a specific company in mind and she recommended Emerald as a better all round ... Read more

Our cabin was excellent. The cruise director was excellent; he was very helpful when we had a problem and sorted it out very quickly to our entire satisfaction. We enjoyed the contrast between busy cities, Belgrade and Bucharest, and ... Read more

As we cruised Budapest to Amsterdam last year, we decided to cruise the other direction on the Danube. The scenery was nothing special and I thought I was going to see something similar to last years cruise and was somewhat ... Read more

We were a group of six friends and the River Danube was the majority choice. As we have already commented, the Bucharest extension was disappointing and two wasted cruising days. Whilst the hotel (Sheraton) was good, aspects of service ... Read more

We had never been on a river cruise before so maybe our expectations were too high. The really good thing about it was that all the arrangements for getting on and off the boat, excursions etc went like clockwork and the local guides were ... Read more

We cruised from Amsterdam to Budapest in late May / early June, in a cabin on the Horizon Deck (top accommodation deck). Everything about the 2 weeks was wonderful: the ship, locations visited, organized tours, the food and especially the ... Read more
