This cruise was part of a 21 day Lisbon to Nice Package put together by Emerald / Evergreen as it’s known in Australia..

So this will be a trip report and review on the boat itself..

We arrived in Lisbon a day early, which I recommend..Evergreen ( E) still picked us up from the airport ...there were three couples doing that... so when we got out through customs we found the Emerald sign very easily, no Driver just the sign. So the six of us just waited until he had a cigarette or whatever it was he was doing, he showed up after about 10 minutes and drive us to the Jupiter Lisboa Hotel . the other two couples, of course had a room ready for them but not us.Anyway we just went for a walk and enjoyed ourselves ,and after an hour or so, we got our room and it was worth the wait because it sounds like we got a better room than they did.

Cabin Review

Cabin Balcony

Would definitely choose a drop-down balcony room and preferably in the middle I think called horizon rather than on the top deck, because there was a small amount of noise of the crane in the morning as it’s lifting the gangplank across and if people are doing their early-morning jogging you can hear them on your rooftop.. These are the same size as the drop-down balcony on the top level but you save quite a bit of money ,same views, same boat same everything.
