So where do writers go to recharge their batteries......
We tried a Danube river cruise this year and were very impressed. The line we chose was Emerald Waterways - relatively new to the river cruise scene, and wow, are they intending to make their presence felt.
We felt like royalty as were greeted aboard by the assembled staff. Luggage was never touched by our hands, and a personal smiling guide to our cabin, showed all the features it had on offer.
Small touches were really appreciated, such as slippers, dressing gown, an alarm clock, chocolates on the pillows each night, towels changed twice a day, and the cabin cleaned as soon as we left.
Headphone links for guided tours were provided so that we never missed a thing, and there were cycles available for anyone feeling the need. All staff, including senior staff were always available to offer help, and as a bonus, the food was always great.
Will we go again - certainly. Will we choose Emerald Waterways again - absolutely.
