Emerald Cruises Ships
Visit Europe’s iconic gems in style and comfort on board your unique, modern river vessel. As soon as you step aboard an award-winning Emerald Cruises ship, you’ll notice the light and airy spaces; the contemporary decor has a striking minimalist feel with statement centrepieces and luxurious surroundings. The elegant furnishing and mirrored walls emphasise your spacious environment and the floor-to-ceiling windows open the horizon to the stunning European views.
The tasteful, contemporary staterooms feature all amenities that come as standard; flat-screen televisions, an ‘infotainment’ system, individual climate control, complimentary Wi-Fi, a bottle of water restocked daily plus plenty of storage space. All suites range in size from 161 to 330 square feet and are the perfect retreat. Almost all staterooms feature a balcony, allowing you to get closer to the passing scenery.
With friendly and professional service from onboard staff, your river cruise experience will be everything you expect and more. From the moment you step aboard until the moment you disembark, everything is catered for.
Food plays a starring role on board with expert chefs meticulously creating seasonal dishes inspired by the regions visited. Reflections Restaurant, the main dining room, begins its taste sensations in the morning when both hot and cold breakfast options are available. However, the showstopper is the main evening meal which gives you the choice of a delicious buffet or an a la carte menu. Throughout both lunch and dinner, the sommelier tastefully selects wines to perfectly complement your meal choice. What’s more - they’re on the house!
Make your way to the back of your chosen Star-Ship and you’ll discover Emerald Cruises' most innovative feature, an indoor heated pool. This sanctuary of calm features a retractable roof that welcomes the cool river breeze during those warmer days on the water. Floor-to-ceiling windows surrounding the entire area bring the outside in and promise endless views while you enjoy a revitalising swim. At night, this unique pool transforms into a cinema, offering a new dimension in onboard evening entertainment.
If a film is not what you’re after, head to the Horizon Bar & Lounge for a cocktail and listen to the resident pianist or watch performances from local entertainers.
At each port, you can embark on a guided exploration of the local area with English-speaking and highly knowledgeable tour guides. Visit famous treasures and uncover all the best-kept secrets of Europe, with each experience giving you a deeper insight into the local culture, history and cuisine.
For extraordinary experiences, a selection of special shore excursions called EmeraldPLUS truly exceeds expectations. Every voyage offers at least one of these fantastic opportunities to delve deeper into the local culture. From afternoon tea and personal insights with a local to an exploration of Keukenhof Gardens, these extra special touches make your journey one to cherish.
Emerald Cruises offer a fantastic range of river cruises along the Danube, Rhine, Main, Rhône, Douro, Mekong and Volga rivers.
