  1. Emerald Sky, 7/12-26, Amsterdam to Budapest. First river cruise. Hope that the water levels cooperate.
  2. Thank you for the excellent blog! So much valuable info.
  3. Backpacks?? I thought those wete only for repeat guests.
  4. I wish Emerald would send the book and map with the travel documents. What do they send anyway besides luggage tags ???
  5. Yes, Emerald has separate groups for slow, medium and faster speed walkers. Emerald also has an additional included program called Emerald Active with a dedicated crew member assigned for bike tours, more extensive hikes amd fitness activities such as power walking, pool aerobics, yoga, etc. This was added starting this season (the Emerald Active Director).
  6. mjmiller: THANK YOU for your wonderful information.
  7. Great blog. I noticed that in your photo of your group of eight, 3 if the men wore shorts. Is it permissable for men to wear nice Bermuda shorts fir dinner in Emerakd ships? My husband sure hopes so.
  8. Could you answer the question that l posted (see above) concerning the # and types out electrical outlets? We'll be on the Sky. THANK you!
  9. Does anyone who has been on the Emerald Sky recall how many available electric outlets are available and their locations to plug in cell phones, camera and other chargers. All of the chargers are rated 110-240 so I believe that I only need to bring the adapters but not a transformer. Thanks.

  11. JRice: Thank you for your response. We have been to Amsterdam multiple times for longer stays in the city center so we really aren't interested in staying in a hotel closer to the ship. We selected the Hilton at the airport because of it's outstanding reviews and convenience after a long travel day. It's connected to Schiphol Plaza (the shopping area outside of customs) by moving walkways. How did you like Emerald? This is our first river cruise so any advice would be appreciated. Thanks again! ericosmith: Thank you for your response. Is the "meeting place" inside Schiphol Plaza (the shopping area outside of customs) inside the airport? Does the photo in your post show the sign (red and white) we should be looking for? Thanks again.
  12. Hi: Booked on a Splendours of Europe cruise on the Emerald Sky leaving Amsterdam 0n 7/12. They will provide transfers from AMS Schiphol airport to the ship but I have 2 questions: 1. How much time do they give you from scheduled flight arrival to pick up time and where is the "meeting point" at the airport? I am actually arriving on the day before and overnighting at the Hilton at the airport so will need to make our way back to the meeting point. 2. Where is the ship usually docked? Is there anything to see in Amsterdam close to the dock? Any other insight or advice is appreciated. Thanks.
