European Luxury River Cruises

Emerald Waterways – the New Generation of River Cruising!

The new generation of river cruising is heading our way and now Emerald Waterways have launched a new fleet of custom-built ‘Star-Ships’ to provide a truly thrilling ride.

Emerald Star, Emerald Sky, Emerald Sun and Emerald Dawn are the new ‘Star-Ships’ designed with an array of spectacular innovations that you wouldn’t normally expect on a river cruise ship.

For instance, Emerald ships boast an on-board heated swimming pool with retractable roof and bar. This on-board oasis then transforms into a cinema in the evening showing a collection of classic films and recent releases – taking on-board entertainment to a completely new level.





Your drinking and dining experience on board an Emerald Waterways river cruise is also truly exceptional! Each one of the cruises begins with a Welcome Dinner where you’ll meet other guests, and ends with a Farewell Dinner to share memories with new-found friends. Experienced chefs prepare dishes of the highest quality which reflect the fantastic cuisine Europe has to offer. Every day in the Reflections Restaurant you’ll enjoy a hot and cold buffet for breakfast and lunch with an array of appetisers, main course choices and a collection of sweet treats at the dessert table. Later in the evenings, a four-course dinner serving delicious international and regional dishes is served.

 When the weather’s fine, The Terrace at the front of the ship offers a beautiful setting to enjoy alfresco dining. For the perfect start to your day, you can watch the sun rise with your morning tea or coffee and light breakfast. Later, you can also grab a café-style lunch from a choice of pastas, pizzas, soups, sandwiches and fish and chips.





Complimentary tea and coffee are available at all times throughout your cruise. During lunch and dinner a carefully chosen special selection of European red and white wines, local beers and soft drinks are also there for you to enjoy and are included in the price of your holiday.



Last but not least is the amazing accommodation that can be best described as simplistic yet beautifully elegant. The decor and furnishings are just sheer class plus the space is more generous than most other river cruise ships giving you excellent value for money – wow!
