Review for Emerald Sky to Europe - River Cruise

We are experienced river cruisers and usually love the on board experience, our cruise on the Sky was the opposite. We transferred from the Star due to low water levels and the experience could not have been more different. The ship wasn't full but the noise levels in the restaurant were intolerable. Groups of younger Americans competed to see who could make the most noise, including whooping ...

This was our first river cruise and we were hugely anticipating the adventure. It started wonderfully well in Amsterdam on the Emerald Star. The first week was excellent - great staff, great food, clean and comfortable boat. Then, because of low river levels, we had to be bussed to join the Emerald Sky for our second week and to join the 120 guests already on that ship (we had been ...

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 ...

Disappointing Cruise on Emerald Sky

First the good aspects of the cruise. The ship was modern and comfortable. Our Cabin was small but adequate. All of the areas were very well kept. The crew were very friendly and accommodating. The tours were very well organized and informative. On the negative side the embarkation from Munich was awful. We were staying in Munich and told to meet at 11 am at the airport to catch the bus ...

I choose this cruise because my travel agent said they were similar to Viking, but more modern decor. The room was fine and we loved the drop down window. The cruise director on the ship was very personable and nice. That is it for the positives. Dealing with Emerald was a nightmare. They changed the ship and we were never informed. It made for a nightmarish boarding day. The food was ...

Brilliant itinerary, loads of activities to opt in, or out, of! Fantastic staff on the boat. Great facilities (the shower was better than a lot I have had in hotels), very comfortable with plenty of space. Loved the panoramic window in our room. Everything was run very efficiently, it is really hard to find fault. Our Activities Manager, Lauren, was superb and Looish was both funny and ...

It was actually the Blooms of Holland and Belgium cruise as they switched ships at the last minute. This was our first ever cruise of any sort and it was simply a marvellous experience. We are keen now to book our next one! The ship was stunning and the cabins were well thought out and clean with superb stewards attending. In fact all the ship's crew were amazing - so much so that it's nigh ...

We chose the Rhine cruise because we had holidayed on the Emerald Sky previously, both like Germany and we had very good feedback from friends who had holidayed on the Rhine cruise a few years ago. We were not disappointed. The ship was very good, the staff truly amazing and the food and wine excellent. The itinerary was varied and included a variety of walking tours, coach tours in fabulous ...

We actually started in Prague, then overland to Budapest where we boarded the Emerald Destiny. However due to low water levels we had to leave the Destiny around Rudesheim, travel by bus and board and continue the cruise on the Emerald Sky to Amsterdam. The whole transfer was managed superbly without any hassles. In fact the ~200km bus trip gave us a different scenery . Patricia , the Tour ...
