We chose this cruise because of two of the destinations but we were blown away by the Cities we had not even heard of. What a fabulous surprise. We loved Bratislava, Melk, Durnstein, Passat and Regensburg. The architecture in every City was astounding. Vienna was beautiful, very very grand but a bit too big and busy, having said that the buildings were breath taking. The staff about the Emerald Sky were wonderful. All of them were so friendly and there appeared to be a very good atmosphere between all staff. The food on the ship in my opinion was the best we have had on a cruise ship. This is our first River Cruise but will not be out last. Much better than an Ocean Cruise where most of the time you are looking at the sea. The itinerary was hectic but there was so much to see we didn't mind this at all. If you are not up to a lot of walking this isn't the type of holiday for you. We would like to try a different river but we are a bit concerned that the next one may not live up to the Danube. We are happy to be proved wrong though. As far as Emerald are concerned we could not fault them. Our very best wishes to all the staff. Thank you for a wonderful experience. Hope to see you all again soon.

Absolutely amazing.

Cabin Review

Cabin 222
We loved the panoramic window. Sometimes blocked by double mooring but to be honest being on the sun deck was even better because you can see what is on both sides of the river.
