We wanted to see historic Europe in a guided carefree way. The actual cruise and destinations were awesome. We seen so much history and met some wonderful interesting people. Emerald really did a good job organizing the itinerary. However there was so much coughing and people that were very sick. The ambulance came to the ship 5 times and took people away. My wife contracted pneumonia and is still very sick, I am not sure if I will ever get her on a cruise again. I am not sure what Emerald could do differently, maybe cruising in the fall is not a good idea.

We had to swap ships from the Emerald Sky to the Emerald Dawn 1/2 way though the cruise because of low water in the river. Maybe there was a sick person in our cabin and the crew didn't have time between the swap to clean completely? Just so many sick people, I just can not recommend taking this cruise in the fall.
