My recent voyage with Emerald Cruises on the Danube River took us through big cities and picturesque small towns in Germany, Austria and Hungary. The scenery is what makes a Danube River itinerary a favorite for first-time river cruises. The Emerald Destiny sailed from Nuremberg, Germany, Sept. 13 with about 125 passengers on a ship that can accommodate 180. All passengers submitted proof of COVID vaccination and a negative PCR test (taken within 72 hours of departure) when boarding the ship. Masks were worn on the ship, except when drinking and dining.
