Pool and Cinema

Our Heated Pool & Cinema

Pool by day, Cinema by night

At Emerald Waterways, our modern approach to river cruising sets us apart from others on the waters. We don’t want to meet your expectations, we want to exceed them. This drives our exceptional level of service, and the exceptional innovation and styling of our award-winning river cruise fleet.

On our Horizon deck awaits one of our Star Ships’ most stunning features, an indoor heated pool and lounge area surrounded by floor to ceiling windows, and complete with retractable roof. Equipped with comfortable loungers, this contemporary decked area is the perfect place to relax during the day after a morning of sightseeing. With specialty teas, coffees, and gelato available from the intimate café bar, this tranquil retreat is the perfect place to simply unwind with a good book, or have a refreshing dip.

Our award-winning Star Ships’ innovative technology and design inventively transforms this daytime retreat into a luxe live entertainment, cinema and event hub. Watch in awe as the floor rises through the pool’s surface and a screen is lowered from above; within minutes, the area is converted into a comfortable, cozy cinema and entertainment area showing a collection of films.

Take a refreshing dip in the ship's sparkling pool.

A new dimension in on-board evening entertainment, throughout your cruise, you’ll be able to watch showings of classic films and recent releases as you wind down for the night with a drink, in the company of your fellow travellers. So if you’re not in the mood to take advantage of the bar, or ready to retreat to your room quite yet, the cinema is a great place to spend your evening.
