Emerald Sun

We cruised on the Danube River on a special interest cruise with Anton Du Beke and Erin Boag. The ship is beautifully decorated, it's modern and very luxurious compared to some other river ships we docked with along the cruise.

We stayed in a Panorama Balcony Suite and these are a great way to see the views as the large window can be opened all the way down so you can lean out and see everything. There's also a space with chairs so you can sit and look out. The rooms were lovely and modern and had robes, slippers and flasks provided for us.

The service on the ship was exceptional, all the staff were very attentive and as it was a fairly small ship with less guests everything felt very personalised. Food was delicious each night and we really enjoyed the local dishes that related to each city we were in. Our waiters even remember one of our party had a food allergy each night.

Cabin Review

The Panorama Balcony Suite is such a great way to use the space. The window opens all the way down so you are able to use it as a balcony whenever you want to. There is also a small area near the window with seats that you can sit and enjoy the views. The bed is very spacious and there is plenty of storage space in the wardrobe and draws and space under the bed for your suitcase. There's a large TV in the room and Emerald provide you with robes, slippers and flasks. They also give you a new large bottle of water each day in a glass bottle so they're not wasting plastic.
