Now you’re free to explore as you please. Enjoy the picturesque river views atop our Sun Deck, or head onshore and experience the many treasures these unparalleled destinations provide.
The variety and freedom you’re afforded makes your time with us one of boundless choice. Here’s what Trish, of the website Mum’s Gone To, had to say about the experience: “It can be hard to tear yourself away from the comfort of an Emerald Waterways ship but when you do, you'll be rewarded with a whole host of exciting experiences.
“I could break away to take photos, whilst still listening to the guide on my headphones,” says Trish. “Free time is always included at each port so you can wander back to the ship at leisure, calling in for a drink at a welcoming bar en route, if the fancy takes you.”
If you’ve stayed on-board, there’s still plenty to do. The Sunday Times’ Sue Bryant paints a splendid picture: “Head up top! Enjoy 360° river views from the Sun Deck. Walk or jog around the marked track; read; chat to new friends; bring your lunch up and eat in the sunshine (the waiters will remember you’re there and they keep the wine coming) and marvel at the complexity of the locks you’ll pass through.”
