I was called initially to cancel a holiday booked for Nov. 2019 which was to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. We were going to Myanmar which had long been a dream for us. On hearing our disappointment, Shannon Crick, who called us pulled out all the stops to find an alternative which she did. We were unable to have the same dates, but are very pleased to be going. Not so happy about additional costs, but we have accepted this. Well done to Shannon

Professional and friendly the perfect mix

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.
