Sail Date: May 2015

While some passengers do get a cruise, others do not. Because of the weather, the cruise should have been cancelled before they embarked us and we would have had our money back. Now, over a month later, the 180 passengers have been offered only a 25% refund in return for having no holiday cruise whatsoever. Beware. Emerald are not ABTA bonded.!

The cabin was good but the view was the same for the four days that the boat did not move.

The top deck amenities were never available.

Port Reviews


We were taken out to Kembs which was as far as the boat could get. A walk across a muddy field got us to the boat. Because of the well-predicted high water the boat never got to the Rhine but stayed marooned in the Alsace Canal.
