Knowledgeable

19 Apr 2019

Very knowledgeable and helpful - Lee was able to help us make decisions about cabin, dinner time etc. We have booked a cruise that we're looking forward to this July so as Lee had all our details we didn't need to repeat our names, dob, address etc. Small things, but they made the booking very easy.

The Ship


New in 2017, Emerald Radiance navigates the beautiful Douro, giving guests the chance to enjoy the famous Portuguese climate and the beautiful vineyard-strewn panoramas. Emerald Radiance boasts extensive, exceptional open-air public spaces – so guests can enjoy a barbecue on the Sun Deck or take a plunge in the open-air pool. The Emerald Radiance will explore Portugal’s Douro region, navigating the eponymous river Douro. Dissecting some of Europe’s most beautiful vineyards and wine-producing villages, the river Douro evocatively stretches through beautiful backdrops on either bank. Fittingly, the bespoke Emerald Radiance has been lovingly designed and built to complement the jaw-dropping scenery unfolding before the ship’s bow.
