Emerald Destiny Cruise Review by debrariley
- Sail Date: July 2019
- Destination: Europe River
All gratuities were included. Bicycles were on board to be signed out and used at port. Swimming pool on board. Nightly entertainment. Delicious, artistically presented dinners with excellent vegetarian selections.
In Basel we boarded about 1100, and rested in the lounge with other early passengers while rooms were being prepared. We were given a wonderful buffet lunch, and then taken to our rooms.
The excursions were well directed and interesting. Free time usually in the afternoons to pursue other interests or rest on top deck.
At the end of the tour, because we were not being transferred to the Amsterdam Airport, but rather staying in Amsterdam for three more days, we waited in the lounge until our taxi arrived to take us to the Airbnb.
I would like the coordinator of Emerald Destiny to know that the taxi charged us 35 EU to travel about 15-20 min from our boat to the airbnb. We didn't notice that he hadn't put the meter on, and were too naive to know what the usual fare should be for this short distance.

A little cool in the room with the air conditioning, but there was thermostat control.
We enjoyed the floor to ceiling windows, with the option of the top half of window lowering for fresh air.
