This was my husband’s and my first ever river cruise, and we could not have been more pleased. We got the panorama balcony room, and of course it was small, but we expected that. The ship was exceptionally clean and the service was outstanding! We were called by name by many of the crew and the bartenders knew our drinks of choice by as early as day 2 of the cruise. We are mid-50’s and were definitely some of the youngest on board, but still quite a lively crowd. We were pleasantly surprised that the EmeraldActive activities were very good workouts. Activity Director Noel made the evenings a blast for everyone! We are not foodies, but were impressed by the quality and diversity of the menu selections. We got the platinum drink package and thought the selection of alcoholic beverages quite good. Our only disappointments were they had no hairdresser on board, even though that was listed as an amenity. (It would’ve been nice to have been informed of this ahead of the cruise). And the workout room is extremely small and had very little equipment, one of which was broken. But these are very, very small complaints and light of an overall outstanding experience. Of course it was the quality of the crew that really made the difference. Already planning our next cruise with Emerald!
