We decided to do this cruise as a change from our normal sea cruises and not having been in the area before it proved to be a perfect choice. The Emerald Sky has a really happy atmosphere and we enjoyed every moment of the trip from Amsterdam to Basel The cruise director Darren made every effort to explain the following days itinerary and always made everyone laugh by telling one of his jokes or poems before we went to dinner. . He did a fabulous job as did everyone else onboard. The Captain was always there to wish you a good trip and again to welcome you back onboard which we thought was a nice touch. The tour guides were all very knowledgeable and gave you all the relevant facts without bombarding you with too many dates etc. There were a couple of special guest entertainers and the violinist who came onboard as we sailed down the middle Rhine area was fantastic. Normal entertainment was provided by a pianist who also proved to be a great DJ putting on a couple of lively disco nights. All in all a great cruise when we met lovely people who all added to the enjoyment of the holiday.

ENJOYMENT ALL THE WAY

Cabin Review

Cabin 310
As you would expect it was compact but there was plenty of drawer storage and the bed and pillows were very comfortable. If we had a complaint at all it was the fact that the wardrobe hanging space was too small but we were told this had been rectified on the newer boats . The shower and other bathroom facilities worked perfectly and were kept spotlessly clean by Benny who looked after us on this trip.
