The ship was beautifully detailed with spectacular views from many areas, including our stateroom. The views from the upper deck as well as the pool area were stunning. I spent many hours relaxing by the pool watching the scenery as the ship moved down the river. I opted out of a couple land tours to relax and was kept company by staff members anxious to attend to any needs.
My only suggestion for those trying to choose a river cruise, review your interests and what type of land tours you may be interested. Some ports are over an hour away by bus so you may prefer ports that are located on the river.
The staff on the Emerald Cruise Line, Destiny was OUTSTANDING. We were fortunate as passengers to have a total of 40 passengers on board with a staff of 44. A unique situation but to our benefit. A wonderful memory and looking forward to another river cruise with Emerald!
