Emerald Waterways

Emerald River Cruises

On Emerald river cruises, you can explore wonderful waterways with all your delicious meals, exciting onshore experiences, and travel and transfers included in the price of your holiday. The cabins on Emerald river cruises are larger than most other companies, but they don’t charge you more for the extra space – in fact, they charge you less. Plus, not only will you be traveling on Europe’s newest river cruise fleet, you’ll be amongst the first to experience many spectacular ship innovations – including an onboard swimming pool that inventively converts into a cinema, and revolutionary open-air architecture that allows you to enjoy your balcony, whatever the weather. You wouldn’t expect all of this from a river cruise, but on an Emerald Waterways river cruise, you can look forward to it.

Enjoy Unforgettable Holidays on Emerald River Cruises

When it comes to exploring Europe, there’s nothing average about Emerald itineraries. These carefully-crafted river cruises range from 8 to 17 days and visit many fantastic villages, towns and cities that line Europe’s Danube, Rhine and Saône rivers. Because Emerald wants you to fully appreciate the places you visit, with their EmeraldPLUS experiences they even include special activities that uncover more than just the usual tourist attractions.

Each of Emerald’s 135-metre long Star-Ships has been custom-built to offer more space per guest than most other vessels on Europe’s waters. Boasting five types of contemporary cabin and unique on-board innovations, Emerald river cruises bring the highlights of ocean cruising to the intimacy of the river. Only on an Emerald cruise can you unwind effortlessly; in the Horizon Bar & Lounge, or savour the endless scenery from the privacy of your suite, watching the sunrise from the sundeck with a complimentary coffee in hand.

Diverse Delights and Open-Air Wonders, only on Emerald Waterways

As part of Emerald’s fully-inclusive service, all of the onboard dining and highlight meals are included in the price of your cruise. The chefs onboard Emerald river cruises take great pride in preparing dishes of the highest quality, so whenever you sit down to dine in the Reflections restaurant or Terrace, you can delight in culinary diversity. Emerald will keep your glass topped up too, with complimentary beer, wine and soft drinks served with lunch and dinner.

Each of the Emerald river cruise ships offers a great range of cabins for you to choose from, including the Emerald Panorama Balcony Suite – a completely new type of cabin, recently redesigned. To replace the run-of-the-mill French Balcony that is commonplace on river cruise ships, Emerald offers a new kind of indoor balcony, complete with a decked area and an ingenious open-air system. With the touch of a button, the upper half of the cabin’s floor-to-ceiling window drops down to let in fresh air and provide full panoramic views of the landscape.
