It was actually the Blooms of Holland and Belgium cruise as they switched ships at the last minute. This was our first ever cruise of any sort and it was simply a marvellous experience. We are keen now to book our next one! The ship was stunning and the cabins were well thought out and clean with superb stewards attending. In fact all the ship's crew were amazing - so much so that it's nigh impossible to pick out any one for special praise. The food was great - we didn't come across a single dish that we didn't enjoy, and the restaurant and bar staff could not have been more helpful or attentive. We thoroughly enjoyed all the included tours for which they had engaged really good tour guides who were both knowledgeable and very entertaining. We would highly recommend Emerald Waterways to anyone considering a river cruise and are already planning our return!
