Emerald had a 4.5 rating and lived up to that. Coming and going went without a hitch. We had to switch boats half way through the trip due to water levels being too low and it went very smoothly. We packed our bags for the morning, went off on a bus tour and when we arrived at the Skye boat to find our luggage in the same room number we had vacated. We were greeted warmly with a glass of champagne and a whole new crew except for Patricia, the cruise organizer and Brett the entertainment person. Both boats provided great friendly service and food. Entertainment was quite good. Every need was looked after. Excursions were very good and the hired tour guides were excellent. We didn't feel over stimulated and had enough time to relax and enjoy time on board. The views from the boat were phenomenal and we took a lot of great photos.
If money is not an issue we would assuredly go again. It was our trip of a lifetime!
I loved that we had a large window to look out of as the views were great. The cleaning staff kept the room very clean and well stocked. We had enough room to store our clothing and shoes. Having been on both the Emerald Destiny and Skye, I liked the vanity and chair in the Destiny best.
