Reviews From Emerald Cruises Customers

‘Fantastic Experience. Great Value’
“We did the Jewels of the Rhine Cruise from Amsterdam to Basel. The Emerald staff is top-notch, and everyone is there to make sure you have a great time. The food and wine were excellent as well. The tours were good, and we saw a lot in a short time – I recommend taking the electric bikes out during your free time. We had a panoramic room which was very nice and comfortable.”

Sheila S

‘Emerald River Cruise – Budapest to Amsterdam’
“Absolutely the best holiday ever. We totally enjoyed everything on this river cruise – our room, the food and wine, the tours, our free time, and the staff were amazing. There was nothing we did not love on this 15-day river cruise, and whether you are looking for an active holiday or just want to relax, you can do as much or as little of the organised tours as you want. I can’t tell you how fabulous it was docking in a new town or city every day.”

Karen C

‘A Dream come true!!’
“This was our first river cruise, and it was amazing. We have been on several sea cruises and didn’t know whether a river cruise would compare, but it did. Emerald is a great company with superb service. We were on the Emerald Star, and there was nothing about it I would change or improve. Food, venues, tours, service, staff, cabin…. everything was five-star. We will certainly be booking again with Emerald – they really have thought of everything.”

FAQs

Find answers to some of the most common questions about river cruising here.

I have a restricted diet for medical reasons. Can Emerald Cruises adjust their meals to suit my requirements?

All cuisine on the Emerald fleet is prepared fresh every day, so our gourmet chefs can easily accommodate special diets. We also offer vegan and vegetarian options. Just let us know your requirements when you make a reservation.

Does Emerald Cruises have a commitment to sustainable cruising?

Emerald Cruises aims to leave as small a footprint as possible with an enviable sustainability agenda created in line with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. We have an unwavering dedication to responsible tourism and protecting rather than exploiting the locations we visit.

Are visitors allowed on board Emerald Cruises ships?

Visitors may board Emerald Cruises cruisers at port stops, but they will need clearance first from the reservations team, who must complete the necessary paperwork. Any guests who join you on board will be required to pay for food and drinks consumed on the ship.

What clothing should I pack for an Emerald Cruises River Cruise?

Casual clothing is always the way to go with comfortable footwear. Check out the likely climate for your cruise dates with our helpful reservations team. Emerald also has a dedicated dress code guide, which provides more detail. There is no requirement to dress up for dinner, which is usually relaxed and informal, although some guests choose to do so for the Welcome and Farewell Dinners.

Do I need vaccinations to travel with Emerald Cruises?

Your GP can advise of any vaccinations required for your specific health status and destination. The NHS website has helpful information about the vaccination protocols for different countries and up-to-date details on Covid-19 protection.

Explore, enjoy, and relax with Emerald Cruises

Sail with the leading, award-winning small-ship cruise company on a voyage of discovery on the world’s most famous rivers. Enjoy all the facilities and amenities of a much larger vessel without high passenger numbers in a luxury and tailor-made environment dedicated to the ultimate river experience. Experience cruising the Emerald Cruises way and never look back.
