You will enjoy the Emerald Waterways difference. Our fully inclusive pricing earned us the Best River Line for Value from the editors of Cruise Critic in 2015 and 2016.
Our innovative river cruise ships offer panoramic views of the stunning scenery, and feature contemporary boutique hotel styling, deluxe in-suite comfort, fine dining options and exceptional service, all included in the price.
Emerald Waterway's sleek and modern 'Star-Ships' are not like other river cruise ships. As one of Europe's newest fleets, every detail and contemporary feature has been designed to enhance the experience of our guests.
Emerald Waterways river cruises are deluxe, all-inclusive vacations. Pricing covers airport transfers to and from the ship, complimentary beer, wine, and soft drinks with lunch and dinner, all tips for shore side and onboard staff, complimentary Wi-Fi, a shore excursion in every port, bicycles and complimentary tea and coffee available 24 hours a day.
The two most innovative aspects of our ships are the dual-purpose area at the aft of the ship that transforms from an indoor heated swimming pool with retractable roof during the day, to a cinema at night, and our revolutionary open-air system found in all staterooms on the Horizon and Vista Decks. With the touch of a button, the upper part of the cabin's floor-to-ceiling window drops down to create the feeling that you are on a balcony. Our staterooms offer a great value to our guests since they are larger than most other operators. All accommodations include complimentary bathrobes and slippers, bottled water, Wi-Fi, electronic safes, flat-screen TV with infotainment systems, a mini-fridge, and a hair dryer.
Emerald Star and Emerald Sky entered service in 2014, followed by Emerald Sun and Emerald Dawn in 2015. The Emerald Destiny will join our fleet in 2017. Each 'Star-Ship' accommodates 182-passengers with 92 staterooms, including two single staterooms. On board we have international officers and crew and sail eight to fifteen-day cruises on the Rhine, Main, Moselle and Danube rivers.
New in 2017, the Emerald Radiance will set sail on the Douro River in Portugal and the Emerald Liberte will cruise fronm Burgundy to Provence on the Saone and Rhone rivers. With just 112 and 138 guests, respectively, these sleek Star-Ships are built to a high standard to offer you the best quality experience, unparalleled on these rivers.
