First River Cruise: Emerald Star Cruise Review by Arruba

First River Cruise
We took advantage of the walking tours offered by Emerald Star which were lead by the most informative tour guides and extended our experience by attending an optional tour to the Opera House where we attended a Viennese concert with music from Mozart and Strauss - an awesome night!!
Wish we had an extra day in Vienna - loved the enchanting village of Durnstein - my handmade More Christmas ornament will be front and center on the tree this year.
The accommodations and service on the Emerald Star were outstanding - While we weren't big fans of the two buffets they had the meals were excellent with attention to details. Amazed at how efficient the staff was - kudos to the chef -
Cannot say enough about the staff - professional and courteous - attentive but not overbearing - looked forward to seeing them each day ( especially Sasha) - the crew presented a "show" one night which we are still talking about - I recorded the "happy birthday" song they sang to celebrate someone's birthday at dinner - will play it now that we are home as it brings a smile to our faces.
Accommodations were perfect for us - room well appointed - very clean - beds and pillows very comfortable. Glad we had the "balcony" which gave us more space and viewing opportunities.
Arrival and Departures very organized and orchestrated. It was obvious that we were in good hands with Bolash.
Great Experience - Thank you dear friends for the invitation and thank you Emerald Star!! Less
