We sailed the Emerald Waterways Adriatic Princess Dalmatian Cruise on June 8 to 15th. I will save you the agony and money spent by informing you that this is NOT a “Luxury Yacht” as stated in their brochure, nor is it a new yacht. Imagine our huge disappointment upon finding out that the “New Luxury Yacht” that we paid dearly for has not even commenced to being built and all the advertising that Emerald Waterways is putting out for their “Luxury Yachts” is False Advertising!!! We were advised a week before sail date that our “Luxury Yacht” was not quite finished yet, let alone not even built. Obviously the short notice was so that we had no opportunity to cancel. I can speak for many of the passengers that we were hugely mislead by a company that supposedly has a great reputation. I for one will not trust to book on Emerald/Scenic cruises again. If it were not for the beautiful fellow passengers, the kind and hard working staff and a beautiful country this would have been so much more miserable and upsetting!!! There are so many reasons that made this NOT a “Luxury” experience, far too many to write but a few examples: *coffee comes out of a machine, nothing fresh brewed *food was very good home cooking but not fine dining experience *snacks were a skimp, only two bowls of pretzels one day *wine was awful with not good options to upgrade to *everything is self serve *it was only after some mutiny that we were able the experience to swim off the back If this had been advertised properly and half the price then it would not receive such negative reviews but shame on Emerald Waterways/Scenic for totally misrepresenting this particular trip. I sure hope that Emerald will make right to all the passengers who have been scammed and I hope that not more innocent people are mislead by their false brochures and advertising. Read Less

My husband and I wanted to see Eastern Europe. Our stay at the Sheraton in Bucharest was good also the tour of the City. The Sky Emerald was a very well designed ship very contemporary design with clean lines, which we loved, however the cabin space was small and not enough room to hang our clothes. On the other hand there were ample spaces in the very deep drawers. Another minus for us was that we had to turn side ways to get to the bathroom as the bed was next to it which left little room to move. We were also disappointed with the balcony, or lack of one, as we paid extra to have one. The service on board ship was good but very noisy dining room both at breakfast and dinner. The entertaining was very poor and was the crew show. The travel to embarkation and disembarkation went smoothly The overall trip was very interesting and the Guides were all extremely knowledgeable.
