We rang to ask some questions about a cruise we were interested in. The agent was very helpful and knowledgable, he answered all aour questions and gave us a lot more information. As a result we booked the cruise.

Great start to th holiday.

Very pleasant and helpful guiding me through the booking process.

First Class Experience.

24 Sep 2018

Gerald was fantastic. He knew everything there was to know about our cruise. He answered all our questions and even raised some points and made some suggestions we hadn't thought of. (even though we are experienced cruisers) It was completely effortless. All emailed confirmations arrived within minutes and without a single mistake.

Not enough information

24 Sep 2018

He could have included the onboard spends infrmation on the email we asked about return coach fare and when I chescked it’s twice the price he quoted if we were hbooking now also it doesn’t state cabin no on the information we have received

A very satisfactory experience indeed

23 Sep 2018

Gerald was very helpful indeed, explained things well and thorough. He discussed with us the issue of the length of daylight on any one day, we had not thought of this. His comments helped us to decide upon which date we chose to travel in order to get the maximum benefit. We were connected to an Agent after only a very short time which is unusual these days. The different types of cabins etc were fully explained. The door was left open for us to call back if we had any queries. Overall a very satisfactory discussion, and so we booked.

last minute booking handled very well thanks

23 Sep 2018

very good service hope to be using again very shortly

The Ship


Guiding you past some of Europe’s most beautiful stretches of countryside and through some of the continent’s most vibrant and enchanting cities; Emerald Sky ensures every minute of your holiday is exceptionally comfortable and enjoyable. From the spacious suites and staterooms to the contemporary, sophisticated public spaces, every inch of Emerald Sky has been considered. Navigating the rivers Rhine, Main, Danube and Moselle; the Emerald Star, Sky, Sun, Dawn and Destiny can guide you through some of Europe’s most magical stretches of water and help you explore many of the continent’s most arresting and enchanting cities. The five sister vessels, boasting a modest capacity of 182 guests apiece, are all blessed with a selection of wonderful amenities and features. Our brand new Emerald ‘Star Ships’, the Emerald Dawn and the Emerald Sun, have made their debut voyages and have received high marks from our guests. You’ll enjoy all the same great features, including our open air system in the balcony suites and the indoor/ outdoor pool area, that make the “Star Ships” the 2014 Cruise Critic Editors’ Pick award winners for best new river ships. No matter which river cruise you choose, all your meals on-board the ship; beer, wine and soft drinks with lunch and dinner; on-shore excursions and touring; a special selection of EmeraldPLUS experiences; all travel and transfers from selected airports; and all tipping are included in the price. It’s what we like to call ‘Exceptional Emerald Value’. Step on to an award-winning ship where the spacious Sun Deck offers panoramic views of the stunning scenery. Relax in the fresh air while enjoying a light lunch and a glass of wine al-fresco on The Terrace. Enjoy insightful excursions in every port at no extra cost and we take care of tipping so you don’t have to think about it. You wouldn’t expect all this from a river cruise, but on an Emerald Waterways river cruise, you can look forward to it.
