Very good customer service' very helpful. They will return your telephone call if busy ASAP. Only previous problem is in duplicating paperwork, when the cruise line have already got the information they ask for it again instead of checking all is in order with the cruise company.

    Destination guide

The Ship


Specially commissioned to sail the Rhône and Saône as part of our Sensations of Southern France river cruise, Emerald Liberté is one of three Star-Ships added to the Emerald Waterways fleet in 2017. Custom-built to provide the most exhilarating and authentic experiences cruising through France, the Emerald Liberté will skilfully navigate the rivers Rhône & Saône when she enters into service in 2017. The standards of service, attention to food, and knowledge of wine you’d expect in France will be sewn into the very essence of the Emerald Liberté – providing on-board experience comparable with world class boutique hotels. Completing the Sensations of Southern France itinerary, the ship exudes the same relaxed spirit as the lands which surround the rivers it sails upon. Travelling from Lyon to Avignon, the Emerald Liberté will explore culturally-rich and enigmatic cities before dissecting the wine regions and charming Mediterranean settlements of France. The Emerald Liberté is just one of three new ships to be added to the Emerald Waterways fleet in 2017, a year promising amazing things for the river cruise world.
