About this deal
The story starts with Hetty arriving at an inn in her late mother's old village a few weeks after the events of Sapphire Battersea. I am losing faith that the plot it going to be as consistent as it used to be, consistently changing, bettering, not this book, I hope she proves me wrong next time! The book had some historical references, like, a bit on the era (Victorian) and the clothes they wore at the time, however it was mostly based on the history of the main character.
And even when she is reunited with her beloved childhood sweetheart Jem, Hetty still longs for adventure – especially when an enchanting figure from her past makes an unexpected reappearance. But I feel a bit cheated by the fact the series continues but in the voice of another, new character who I’m not interested in. A fantastic adventure for brave, feisty Hetty Feather - one of Jacqueline Wilson's most well-loved characters. I thought Emerald Star was a great story and I thought it was a great way of carrying on the story of Hetty Feather. In 2007 Jacky Daydream was published, an inspirational true story of how a shy schoolgirl became a superstar author.You are totally relaxed, only hours from Portumna, where you savoured shepherd’s pie in a friendly pub and checked out the castle! There was so much to see and do in Salzburg, Vienna and we stay on in Budapest after the river cruise to explore the city further. Still, I can't help but love the flame-feathered fire tempered girl- I grew up with her story after all!
We have a restricted diet and there is no buffet options in the early evening, this would have been a problem however Constantin the restaurant manager was very helpful and proactive so we ate well on the ship. The Lower Lough Erne is famous for its hefty brown trout, and Upper Lough Erne is a pike angler’s nirvana! This book is really well written by Jacqueline Wilson and i would defiantly recommend this book to all ages, old and young! I didn’t really think that this book would live up to my expectations of the other 2 books, sapphire battersea and hetty feather but I certainly did! We booked well over a year in advance, however a month before we were due to travel we were told we had been changed to the Star, which is the oldest in the fleet.Whether you wish to undertake a few lengths before breakfast in the heated pool or enjoy a Hollywood classic in the cinema, the choice is yours.

Like the new longships of Viking River Cruises, the innovations implemented on Emerald Waterways ships make these vessels an alternative to the ocean "small-ship cruising".
This isn’t as good as the other books in the ‘Hetty Feather’ series, which is a pity as its the last installment. This spectacular stretch of water is huge and you could easily spend a week exploring the many pretty villages along its shores. It is also gateway to the Shannon-Erne waterway for those wanting a more traditional ‘canal and lock’ experience. The Star does not have the feel of a new boat, however the public rooms in the Star were of a good standard.
One of Emerald Star’s standout features is her heated swimming pool which has a retractable roof offering a 180-degree view at the aft of the ship. Monastery ruins, medieval churches and stately castles are seen around every corner on the Shannon-Erne history holidays. Come here and discover many beautiful monuments, like the old monastery, the ruins of the cathedral and the pretty castle ruins too. The story ends with Hetty and Jem kissing, and the following day, Hetty runs away with the circus to be the new ringmaster.
