We wished to travel on the Danube and particularly to visit Vienna, Budapest and Bratislava.. The ship itself was all that we expected with a very attentive and friendly staff. Food A1 . Cabin immaculate. Liked it that everything was paid for upfront unless you wished to do of the special trips on offer. However apart from choosing one extra - the concert in Vienna, we were very happy with what was on offer. All the excursion guides were excellent.The evening entertainment not always to our taste but the musical evenings were exceptional.
Unfortunately towards the end of the cruise the Danube ran out of water which meant we didn't reach our final destination. It didn't matter as we would have been sailing there in the night before our departure for home. The Emerald staff dealt with the situation admirably so there were no hitches for our transfer back to Munich airport.
