We choose Emerald for its all-inclusive plan and it was ALL-INCLUSIVE. Our trip started with our first flight getting cancelled. Working with Emerald and the airline, we were able to get to Nuremburg some 7 hours later than had been planned. Emerald was there to pick us up howbeit without our luggage. Working tirelessly, Emerald was able to locate our luggage and get on-board 2 days later. With fresh clothing, we began to enjoy our trip. Our ship Destiny was one of their newest ships and it was truly a pleasure to be sailing in such wonderful ship. We had the Grand Balcony room and with its amenities, we could not ask for much more. Enjoying our balcony, we could lower the glass for a real sense of traveling outside. A note about our bed. It was very comfortable, however, we did not need a king bed in our room. Perhaps in the future they can offer queen size as well. Being this was our second river cruise, our meals aboard the Destiny were much better than the meals on our first cruise. What made the difference for us was the quality, selection and service. They served ice cream, 2 flavors a day, each day of our trip. Our first cruise we were never offered ice cream. The entertainment was another plus for Emerald. With live music be played in the lounge after dinner, you could really relax and meet new friends. Emerald provided everything we needed when it came to the shore excursions and ports that we visited. Bikes were offered to anyone wanting to get a little exercise the pedaling way. Would we ride with Emerald again? By all means it would be our pleasure.

River sailing at its best
