The staff and crew of the ship was fantastic. Christmas Markets are not to be missed.

Was great, food was good, cabin small but nice, excursions were good.

Emerald provided a very memorable experience. Everything went according to plan. There were many activity options to pick from. The food and drink and staff were excellent. I liked the pool and bikes which gave us additional activities to enjoy, which Viking Cruises did not offer when I went on a previous river boat cruise with them 3 years ago.
