RIVER CRUISE with Emerald Waterways
Emerald Waterways offer comfort and innovation on-board their new state-of-the-art Star-Ships.
Emerald Waterways have been extremely successful in introducing a more affordable modern 4 star plus experience aimed not only at the ‘grey’ market but younger guests including families. The first 2 ships entered service in 2014, two more in 2015 and a further four in 2017.
Their modern fleet includes a unique dual-purpose area at the aft of the ship that transforms from an indoor, heated pool with retractable roof during the day, to a cinema at night. A second impressive state-of-the-art feature is the balcony cabins that transform into conservatories at the touch of a button.
You can enjoy five-course a la carte dining in the Reflections Restaurant as well as al fresco light bites in The Terrace which includes an open-air dining space (for breakfast and lunch only).
Coffee, tea and water, as well as wine, spirits and beer with lunch and dinner are included as well as free Wi-Fi connection.
On board you have five room grades to choose from: Emerald Panorama Balcony Suite, the Owner’s One-Bedroom Suite, the Riverview Suite, the Grand Balcony Suite or the Emerald Stateroom.
Shore excursions and transfers are included, although in-depth or unusual shore excursions are surcharged. The new Emerald ACTIVE excursions offer guided bicycle rides, expert led hikes and canoeing trips at no extra cost at selected ports. Their Emerald PLUS programme offers guests a more in-depth cultural experience at no extra cost.
