My brother and his wife had cruised with Emerald Waterways a few years ago, and they were highly impressed. So on their recommendations, we decided to book with Emerald Waterways.
All gratuities were included. Bicycles were on board to be signed out and used at port. Swimming pool on board. Nightly entertainment. Delicious, artistically presented dinners with excellent vegetarian selections.
In Basel we boarded about 1100, and rested in the lounge with other early passengers while rooms were being prepared. We were given a wonderful buffet lunch, and then taken to our rooms.
Very comfortable bed. Ample closet and clothes storage unit. Good washroom and shower.
A little cool in the room with the air conditioning, but there was thermostat control.
We enjoyed the floor to ceiling windows, with the option of the top half of window lowering for fresh air.
