We booked an Evergreen tour of Eastern Europe plus a river cruise on the Emerald Sun from Budapest to Amsterdam. We simply couldn't have been more satisfied or impressed! The ship was superb! The team running the ship were first class! The itinerary was great! We were particularly impressed with our Tour Director, Jana! She couldn't have been more helpful and obliging, and was always perfectly organised. Very impressive! Also the chef, Lemanya, was great - the food was wonderful. Also terrific were the fantastic wait staff. Just so efficient and helpful! The ship was very new, and the entire layout very well thought out! It included Australian power points. Plenty of cupboard space. Each room had a very nice bathroom, with a roomy shower. The enclosed 'verandah' was particularly good - it doubled as an inside sitting room and an outside balcony just by pressing a button to lower the top window. Pretty nifty! I highly recommend this ship and its entire ship's crew! You won't be disappointed!

A superb team; a wonderful cruise!

Cabin Review

Cabin 216
Plenty of cupboard space. Excellent bathroom and roomy shower. The indoor/outdoor sitting room/balcony arrangement was particularly clever. The air conditioning was good, even though the weather was quite hot during our cruise. A very comfy bed.
