  3. Emerald Dawn
This is the first cruise we have undertaken and thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. The ship was absolutely spotless, the crew very very helpful with cruise director Alex there to help. The dining was an experience on it’s own, the food beautifully cooked and served by very competent waiters. The on shore excursions were well organised with very knowledgeable guides. The highlights for us was Strasbourg, The Black Forest museum and the cable car ride to the castle in Koblenz. We will most certainly book another river cruise, land in view the whole time! We flew from Newcastle but the return wasn’t as straightforward as we had to change planes in Paris C de G, a massive place. The only part of the holiday we didn’t enjoy. One abiding memory is the amount of cargo carrying vessels on the river and negotiating the large locks. Another was the size of the Lorelei statue, blink and you missed it!

Marvelous sail on the Rhine
