European Luxury River Cruises

Christmas Day Message from Emerald!




Emerald Waterways, Europe’s newest and brightest river cruise line, are embarking on their biggest ever television ad campaign at the start of 2015. 



The multi-channel advert launches on Christmas day. 






Just before the Queens speech!





It showcases the unique experience and incredible inclusions enjoyed by guests on-board Emerald Waterways’ cutting-edge Star-Ships, which were recently voted ‘Best New River Ship’ in the Cruise Critic Editors’ Pick Awards 2014.




Backed by a ¼ million pound investment, the advert also promotes their January Sale in which guests are entitled to save £1,000 per couple when they book their European river cruise by 30th January 2015.




With over 80% of spaces on-board 2015 cruises already sold out, Emerald Waterways have released new dates and availability on their popular Danube Delights cruise. What’s more, to accommodate exceptional demand, they have also created a new Rhine-Main Discovery cruise that sets sail next summer.


With more amenities and state-of-the-art features than any other river cruise line, Emerald Waterways’ innovative ‘Star-Ships’ are making heads turn by setting a new standard in river ship design.

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!



State-of-the-art River Cruising!

If you thought a river cruise was just a simple cruise down a river, think again!

River cruise tours have become big business, and because of this growing popularity, river cruise ships are evolving and getting better all the time.



Take for instance the  the magnificent Viking longships. Not so much a small ship that travels along the rivers, more an amazing hotel on water sailing through some of the most breathtaking scenery anyone could want to wish!

Furthermore, it’s not just the luxurious state rooms river cruise liners have to offer, although they are something else as well. The big extras make all the difference too!

Take for example the Emerald Waterways ships and all their finery.



These ships are Emerald Waterways new state-of-the-art ships and are really something else!

The new deluxe ships boast a heated swimming pool complete with retractable roof and bar, creating a brilliant on board oasis to relax in, whatever the weather. Once you’ve had a dip in the pool’s sparkling waters, you can always grab a drink from the bar to enjoy as you unwind on the comfortable lounge chairs.
