we arrived on board the afternoon before our cruise began and had a day in Amsterdam prior to hitting the river, which was well received. Getting into our rooms was quick and luggage arrived immediately. The ship was well appointed with comfortable lounge, lovely dining room a pool and big sun deck, the rooms were lovely and very spacious, the electric window/balcony is a great idea, we used it many times. the food was absolutely first class, plenty of options, more than enough to quell any hunger and beautifully presented. the staff in the dining room were wonderful and soon learned peoples likes and dislikes, the quality of the wines and beer on board was very good and very much enjoyed. The evening entertainment kept people happy with a variety of games, karaoke, quizzes etc. Considering how many places we covered there was a good mix of guided tours and free time which was appreciated by the guests. the housekeeping staff were sensational and to be congratulated we had a great time and would recommend Emerald waterways to anyone

Great ship, great crew, great service
