We wanted a holiday travelling to an area we hadn't been to before although our friends we travelled with had experienced cruising before.
It was a special double birthday and wedding anniversary holiday so we chose Emerald Cruises because of their high standard.
Our friends had travelled with Scenic Waterways 5 years ago and they stated that this holiday was of the same standard.
The crew were very friendly as were the staff who cleaned our rooms.
I must also mention the Reception staff were very helpful.
I had a missing suitcase from the airline and the Cruise director Patricia was extremely helpful and went out of her way to try to track the case down.
The guided tours were excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed the Bratislava tour with Monica.
The evening cruise along the Danube on our last evening aboard was also excellent and enjoyed by all. The is one not to be missed.
To sum up we would certainly holiday with Emerald again and would recommend it to anyone.
Cabin was spotless and of a reasonable size. More than enough for 2 people. Excellent shower. We loved the extra touches of the towels being made into animals which greeted us when we returned for the night.
Very good guide who was born in Budapest so we had excellent knowledge given to us
Again very informative and the guide was born in Vienna so knew when to visit the Spanish Riding School to get the best pictures
