Ship was good, crew was good, food was good. Trips were good as were the ports of call with the exception of the black Forrest. We went on a bus trip which took one and a half hours each way so we could have a slice of black Forrest cake. We thought we were going for a hike that in fact was a 2 K ramble. We would suggest that this particular port be changed to another closer to Basel. There was no recycling on the ship which was strange. Coffee machine was wonderful as was the different coffees it produced. This was our first river cruise and despite the above criticism regarding the hike we would still recommend Emerald and would definitely travel with them again. The crew entertained us after dinner one evening and did a wonderful job. Embarkation and disembarkation was well organized and went very smoothly.

Excellent crew
