This was our third cruise with Emerald. And it was totally up to our expectations. Sparkling ship with delightful, charming, attentive crew, all with a great sense of humour. Nothing is too much trouble. The food is delicious, and it is wonderful not to have to cook. The tours are fascinating, and the scenary beautiful. There weren't many English on this cruise, mainly American and Canadian. Sadly the Queen died while we were on board and the other passengers all came and offered us their condolences, which made us feel so loved, as if our own mother/grandmother had died. We will alway remember where we were when the Queen died.
On previous cruises we have been treated to someone playing the piano in the evening, and we missed this. We had one evening of live music, but otherwise it was quizes and dancing. The quizes were fun with rivalry between the Brits and the Americans which was hilarious, but something more gentle occasionally would have been nice.
I had one full body massage which was divine but 149 Euros? That is A LOT of money!
We loved our room. Spotlessly clean, lovely big window with a beautiful outlook (unless there was another ship parked next to us!). Cleaned twice a day and a chocolate on the pillow, what's not to like!?
