Emerald Waterways FAQs

Information to help you prepare for your river cruise

General questions
Q. Can I bring my kids on the cruise?
A. Yes, if they are over the age of 12. Children must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian staying with them in the cabin and at all times during the cruise. 
 
Q. How will the water levels of the rivers affect my river cruise?
A.

Water levels on Europe's rivers vary and can occasionally mean disruption to our itineraries. If we're unable to continue sailing certain rivers due to water level problems, we'll do everything we can to minimize the impact this has on your vacation and make alterntive arrangements for the rest of the itinerary. This could mean arranging coach transfers, organizing ship swaps, providing hotel accomodation or finding alternative attractions to visit - all of which are weather dependent.

More information can be found on our River Cruise Guarantee page.
