The Emerald Liberté is the perfect setting for a relaxed and luxurious cruise through the southern stretches of France. A contemporary and stylish vessel, the interior tastefully echoes the spirit of the southern French countryside, whilst cutting-edge amenities ensure she fulfils the wishes of all who travel with her. With all costs covered (including internal transfers and tipping), it’s no wonder Emerald Waterways have been crowned ‘Best For Value' 2016 by Cruise Critic for the second year running.
With a capacity of 138 passengers and brand new for 2017, the Emerald Liberté is at the forefront of modern river cruising. Elegant suites, staterooms and public spaces are set across four beautifully appointed decks, providing endless options for relaxation and enjoyment. Guests can expect excellent service, attention to food, and of course, an exceptional knowledge of wine, whilst cruising the beautiful rivers of Europe.
This versatile vessel provides suites and staterooms to suit all tastes and lifestyles. Enjoy the magnificent views and picturesque landscapes from the comfort of your cabin, with an Emerald Panorama Balcony Suite. For ultimate luxury, the Owner's One-bedroom Suites provide a bedroom which closes off from the rest of the cabin, a separate lounge area, and a glorious outdoor balcony complete with open-air system, allowing you to take in the views of your surroundings whatever the weather. The stunning Emerald Staterooms and Emerald Single Staterooms feature picture windows and the same high quality facilities as all other cabins, making them excellent value for money.
From a delicious buffet breakfast to an à la carte dinner, sitting down to another excellent meal will soon become one of the highlights of your cruise.
Whether you're enjoying a five-course dining experience or savouring some local delicacies, the exceptional Reflections Restaurant promises an array of irresistible choices. All meals are included in the price of your trip, with complimentary wine, beer and soft drinks available during meal times. Allow the friendly and knowledgeable team on board to suggest pairings to best suit your cuisine as you take advantage of the complimentary drinks package.
For a peaceful and intimate experience, The Terrace is a beautiful outdoor setting in which to embrace al-fresco dining. Located at the front of the ship on the Horizon Deck, this idyllic area is the perfect place to enjoy a cafe-style lunch and take in the sights of the river as it unfolds before you.
Start your day with a light swim in the indoor heated pool; its retractable glass roof allows you to take full advantage of the warmer climate. The wellness and fitness area is home to a comprehensive selection of gym equipment and spa facilities for you to use at your leisure, as well as a skilled hairdresser on hand for additional pampering throughout your journey.
With a different port of call almost every day of your cruise, experience a series of inspiring days ashore, taking you to the very heart of the beautiful towns and cities on the itinerary. Each evening before dinner, your Cruise Director welcomes you to the Horizon Bar and Lounge for an informal yet informative talk on your forthcoming destinations. With tips on what you'll see and things to look out for, this is a fantastic way to plan for the day ahead.
The Horizon Bar and Lounge is the social hub of the ship and a modern space to socialise and unwind. Catch up over coffee with new friends during the daytime, or relax in the evening with your favourite cocktail as live piano music creates a special ambience.
The top deck of the Emerald Liberté is blessed with a large area to sit back and relax, enjoy a barbecue with new friends or sink a few balls on the putting green.
There is never a dull moment with further activities ranging from challenging bar quizzes to local performances in a traditional style. Watch in awe as the spectacular indoor pool transforms at night into a movie theatre, where a selection of classic and contemporary films are regularly shown. The popular crew show takes place after the Farewell Dinner at the end of your cruise and is a lively and memorable occasion for all.
