My friend and I returned from a river cruise aboard the Emerald Liberte on the Saone and Rhone river. It was our first time on a river cruise and it surpassed our expectations. Our cabin was excellent - very comfortable with every amenity. The cabin was kept in a pristine condition by the housekeeping staff and nothing was too much trouble. Towels were changed twice a day and every night on returning to our cabin, the beds were turned down, blinds drawn and even a chocolate on our pillow! The food was wonderful and we were looked after by an excellent and friendly crew who couldn't do enough for us - nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast and lunch were buffet style and waiter service for the evening meal. The choice was good and they also had about 6 dishes that were always available if you didn't want what was on the main menu. Wine, beer and soft drinks were included in the price and served with lunch and dinner. The trips ashore were very interesting, conducted by local guides. Transfers at the beginning and end of the holiday were so well organised - everything went like clockwork. All in all, a holiday to remember and highly recommended. Read Less

This was our first French cruise and first with Emerald. Thanks early booking we had a Grand Balcony Suite and the unlimited drinks package on top of everything else. The boat is superb, well planned and appointed and all the crew are obviously very proud of it. We dined with the captain, who was charming. The food was excellent and the drinks plentiful. All the staff were very friendly and efficient, especially Robert in the bar, Gabriela our cabin steward and most particularly the tour director, Jana who worked tirelessly to make sure that everything went smoothly. The included excursions were good and the local guides very informative. We did not do any optional tours as this gave us more time to relax on the boat and enjoy the amenities and the weather. A bonus was the guided bike ride from Turnous to Macon which took place in beautiful weather. Overall this was an excellent trip with a company that prides itself on providing slightly different cruise experience. Read Less
