My first river cruise....and it could not have been more perfect. The boat and our accommodations were wonderful. The food was superb! Service and staff were top notch. There were plenty of activities if you wanted to be involved, as well as a nice variety. Our shore excursions were fabulous, and each and every guide was better than the last one! The bathroom could use more hooks, and another place for hanging a towel, but other than that, everything was better than we anticipated! Highly recommend Emerald for your next cruise! Our flight from the USA arrived mid-morning. Even though we were so early, we were greeted at the airport and immediately taken to the boat. The cruise director, Michael, welcomed us, and invited us to relax in the lounge. Lunch and drinks were not expected, but very welcome after a very long travel. We were treated like royalty from start to finish. Note: We were scheduled to be on the Emerald Dawn, but the boat was changed to Emerald Star. It is my understanding the boats are nearly identical.
