Onboard Activities:
Smooth....exactly describes Emerald Waterways cruising. Smooth cruising all the way...from the immaculately presented promotional material to the backpacks and elegant wallet received on ticketing. We had sleek transfers and pretty good service throughout the cruise although at times the waiters in the restaurant were rather pushed . We could not really fault one area of our Danube Cruise with Emerald Waterways. The cabin was extremely comfortable with windows that electronically rolled to a balcony level affording us spectacular views albeit a little chilly. Food was excellent with wines and beers complimentary at mealtimes. The food and wines complemented the areas we were travelling through and quality of the latter far exceeded the wines received on a drinks package on an ocean going cruise ship. The free excursions included in the package although not long were excellent - all guides we had really kept us informed. The destinations were varied and the exertion required really depended on oneself..to do as much or as little as one wished. Apart from the "free" included excursions there were also optional side trips at additional cost to places such as Salzburg or a Viennese Musical Evening for example. There were additional activities - we were visited by a typical "Bavarian Oompah Band" and a troupe of Hungarian dancers. They also had food and wine tasting when going through the Wachau Valley. Lounge facilities were at times a little crowded as it was chilly and most people stayed inside but once the upper deck is opened in better weather there should be no such problems. We had taken books to read and hardly turned a page, we were so busy. There was also good TV entertainment in room and free wifi. It was a very interesting cruise, totally enjoyable and one we would recommend. I would have no hesitation taking the smooth path Emerald Waterways provides again! Just now need a holiday to get over all the walking and sightseeing we did on this one!
