Our main requirement was the dates, which Emerald were able to offer us.
The places we visited were very interesting but sometimes we were given too much information to take in. We would have liked more time to explore on our own. The lady who took us to Heidelburg castle was very verbose and overwhelmed us with information. The best guide was the one in Strasburg.
We thought the en-suit bathroom was very cramped and we were directly under the gangplank which was very noisy.
The entertainment in general was very good except for the quiz.
The staff were always welcoming and helpful.
Breakfasts were excellent, lunch not so good (too much pasta and the gnocchi inedible), and the salad bar was not big enough for the number of people.
Dinner was very good except that the soup tasted the same each day although it was supposed to be different flavours! Desserts were very creamy and too sweet.
Bed very comfortable, bathroom too small. Too much noise from gangplank above us.
We liked way the towels were presented as swans etc. They made us smile and the chocolate on the pillow was a nice touch. Wi Fi connection was very poor most of the time and the TV had very few programmes to watch.
