Life Onboard

Life onboard An Emerald Waterways River Cruise.

Innovative On Board Amenities

The moment you board an Emerald Waterways Star-Ship, you'll be met with an overwhelming sense of light and space. From the Horizon Bar and Lounge, with its floor-to-ceiling windows; to the terrace, overlooking the river; to the sun deck, where you can relax on a comfortable sun lounger.

Relax on the Sun Deck

Head to the top of our Star-Ships to enjoy the best views of the river from the spacious Sun Deck. An open area, where you can bask in the sunshine or enjoy a crisp morning from your deck chair. Try your hand at a game of noughts and crosses, challenge a fellow guest to some putting or simply relax with a drink.

If you’re sailing on the Douro River relax on board Emerald Radiance, you will be able to relax in the heated spa-style Serenity Pool, as you make the most of the golden Portuguese sun as we sail.

Refresh in our Wellness Spa

Take care of mind, body and soul during your time on board in our well-equipped gym, perfect if you wish to keep up with your exercise regime. What could be better than following up a work-out or busy day onshore with an invigorating massage or facial in our spa? Indulge in a little ‘me’ time as you treat yourself to a manicure and pedicure, or even visit the hairdresser for a special style or beard trim in time for one of our gala dinners.
