After doing some research, we decided on Emerald as the dates and duration suited us. Also your brochure was very persuasive with lovely photos. We decided on a grand balcony stateroom but were disappointed to find on many occasions that other boats were moored along side us. This meant having to keep the blinds closed during the day. The food was very disappointing at first but improved a little towards the end of the week. After dinner we felt rushed out of the dining room as staff were trying to set up for the next day. We would have liked to be able to sit there and have after dinner drinks and carry on a conversation with other guests. The music in the lounge was always so loud it was difficult to hear what others were saying. Our highlights were Regensburg, but we didn't have much time there as we sailed early in the day. The best guide by far was Alex in Passau. He was amusing and had knowledge of not only the history but current and relevant information about his area.

We really enjoyed visiting the smaller places like Regensburg.

Cabin Review

Cabin 320
It was smaller than expected but the bathroom was excellent and the shower very good.

The television had lots of news channels and very little else in English.
