Introducing the next generation of river cruising

discover Europe with Emerald Waterways

The Itineraries

When it comes to exploring Europe, there’s nothing average about our itineraries. Our carefully crafted river cruises range from 8 to 17 days and visit many fantastic villages, towns and cities lining Europe’s Danube, Rhine and Saône rivers. And because we want you to fully appreciate the places you visit, we also include special activities that uncover more than just the usual tourist attractions with our EmeraldPLUS experiences.

Take a look at any of our European river cruise itineraries to find out more.

Enjoy a river cruise on an Emerald Star-Ship

The Star-Ships

Each of our 135-metre long Star-Ships has been custom built to offer more space per guest than most other vessels on Europe’s waters. Boasting five types of contemporary cabin and unique on-board innovations, like a heated pool that turns into a cinema, we bring the highlights of ocean cruising to the intimacy of the river. Unwind in our Horizon Bar & Lounge, savour the endless scenery from the privacy of your suite and watch the sunrise from the Sun Deck with a complimentary coffee in hand.

Fine dining

The Dining

As part of our fully-inclusive service, all of your on-board dining and highlight meals are included in the price of your cruise. Our chefs take great pride in preparing dishes of the highest quality, so whenever you sit down to dine in our Reflections Restaurant – or enjoy an alfresco breakfast or light lunch on the Terrace – you can delight in culinary diversity. We’ll keep your glass topped up to, with complimentary beer, wine and soft drinks served with lunch and dinner.

Emerald's Panorama Balcony Suite

The Cabins

Each of our ships offer a great range of cabins for you to choose from, including the Emerald Panorama Balcony Suite– a completely new type of cabin, designed by us. To replace the run-of-the-mill French Balcony that is commonplace on river cruise ships, we offer a new kind of indoor balcony, complete with a decked area and our ingenious open-air system. With the touch of a button, the upper half of the cabin’s floor-to-ceiling window drops down to let in fresh air and provide full panoramic views of the landscape.
