Oh dear, we hoped for so much more. We were promised it would be OK, but it wasn't. We know vegetarians are often forgotten, but airlines have got the hang of it, why not Emerald? Why put ham in the soup? Pollute the lentils with bacon or tuna. Why? It truly spoiled our trip. Every day we hoped the next day would be better. I wasn't. All the rest was fine. I have complained, so we will see where it goes. Come on Emerald. Get a grip. It's easy - no meat. Use standard veggie stuff, Linda MacCartney, Quorn. Make it easy on yourself. It's a wheel that does not need re inventing. The ship was as good as it could be given it is a river boat so ceilings are low, so noise levels are high. Crew were good, cruise director was great. Scenery good. Trips OK. Just the food ----- We are booked with a sister company and really worried the Group just have no clue.

Let down by poor vegetarian options and meat products in the veg.
