From airport pick-up to the end drive to the return airport, we were well looked after.
All the crew very attentive, efficient, warm and friendly. Cabins and general areas were all spotlessly clean and comfortable. The cruise director very efficient and friendly, and gave us a brief overview every night of what to expect the next day. Excursions every day well organised and never rushed. The Quietvox system worked extremely well and we enjoyed all the visits. Entertainment was low key and unobtrusive, which suited us. The piano player was really good and an accomplished musician who played to his audience whether soft music or music to dance to in the evening. Breakfast and lunch were self service and lighter alternatives offered in another part of the ship. Dinner was superb and beautifully presented with lovely wine. We have no hesitation in recommending Emerald Waterways for European River Cruises as they offer probably the best value for money.
We chose a stateroom since, on a previous cruise, we did not spend any length of time in the cabin. Panoramic views are fine but often other ships and walls block the view! The cabins are well appointed, have plenty of storage space and the beds extremely comfortable. The shower and bathroom facilities very efficient.
