2-5 Cruises • Age 50s

We just got off an amazing cruise on the Danube departing from Budapest on August 30 to Vilshofen, Germany, September 6. There were 32 passengers with 34 staff. The cruise disembarking September 6 only had 37 passengers. And, the two cruises prior to ours had 30-something and 74 passengers respectively. Here are some observations: 1. Hungry required a PCR test to enter by air. No one asked to ...

Mississipi river Minneapolis to New Orleans

Review for American Countess to U.S.A.

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

We have long had a desire to take a Mississippi river cruise its entire length, from Minneaolis to New Orleans. After a couple of outstanding river cruises in Europe, we were excited to try something in our home country. Cruises that travel the entire rivers are rare, most are sold as seven day/half river cruise. So we booked this based on research and itinerary. We do wish that later cruises were ...

This was our third river cruise with Emerald having chosen it based on our previous experiences with the company. We certainly made the right choice. From start to finish everything was 10 out of 10, the service, the itinery, transfers etc. Emerald certainly know how to do river cruising. We had a city break in Lisbon before the cruise and the transfer from the airport and subsequent ...

We were originally booked to do the Danube, but when restrictions were coming in because of the epidemic we switched to the Douro. Having had a wonderful holiday with Emerald before, it was our first choice for this one. We were not disappointed. You are looked after incredibly well from the moment you are collected at the airport. The staff work incredibly hard and always provide the most ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

Boat was good and clean. Food was good, many different choices. Most employees nice and helpful. Activities. DO NOT GO IF YOU CANT WALK FAR. Everything is a good distance away, even to get on a bus..the joke on the bus was (everyone told us 15 minutes). Bus rides and walking were way longer than that. No snacks after dinner….Not even at the bar… COVID test had to be at the desk ...

I chose this cruise as an opportunity to learn more about AmaWaterways and their products. The itinerary appealed to me for the classic & iconic landmarks we would visit and see. It exceeded my expectations ten-fold! From the time I stepped out of the taxi at the dock in Basel to the time I disembarked in Amsterdam, the feeling of comraderie and family was palatable with the crew and other ...

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

We have river cruised on Tauck, Scenic, Vantage and Viking…..Uniworld is the worst! Poor and inconvenient docking spots (in an industrial dump one night), poor, non-regional food and wine, poor to no entertainment, poor guides and programs but VERY GREAT STAFF.!! We expected wonderful local food and wines from the Moselle and Rhine region……no…..wines from S Africa, etc and food from some ...

Review for American Harmony to U.S.A.

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

We had booked a fantastic European river cruise for September, 2021....and then cancelled because of the pandemic and fears of being "stuck" overseas if one of us became ill. So--what to do. The Columbia and Snake Rivers were unknown to us...except what we knew about the explorations of Lewis & Clark. And we would be in the US! The trip was beyond our expectations in every way, starting with the ...

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

When my wife's mother died 5 days before our river cruise, Viking told me the “Risk Free Guarantee” they gave me at booking no longer applied after they canceled our June trip—now we would simply lose all we paid. Rather than lose everything, I decided to go without my wife. Then Viking called the night before I left to say I owed $6,971 more for a single supplement—despite having already ...

6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

The ship is beautiful! Our room with private balcony was worth it. The food was plentiful and mostly good. The crew was mostly helpful. A few never smiled. (Bad contract maybe?) The Riverlorian was one of the best in the nation. Learned a lot. Entertainment on the stage was over the top. Weather was perfect! Room was well taken care of. Off ship Hop On Hop Off was good. Those are all the good ...
