In this photo diary, we've shared our personal snapshots from an eight-day, seven-night river cruise from Nuremberg to Trier, Germany on a ship of Emerald Waterways, Emerald Star.

EMERALD STAR and bicycles in Wurzburg, GermanyEvery page has multiple photos with captions, so you won't need to click your way through a long, annoying slide show.

We've divided the photo gallery into day-by-day sections. (See the menu above, or click here to get started.)

Please note:

  • In addition to our main photo diary, we've included photo diaries of Nuremberg and Erlangen, two popular river-cruise ports on the Main-Danube Canal. (We spent time in both cities before our cruise.)

  • Emerald Star life preserverIf you're cruising from or to Nuremberg and haven't arranged transfers through your cruise line, be sure to read our illustrated Nuremberg Cruise Port Guide, which has step-by-step directions for using public transportation between the cruise port, Nuremberg's main railroad station, and Nuremberg Airport.
