Emerald Waterways’ River Cruises

Introducing the next generation of river cruising

Emerald Waterways represent a new chapter in the world of river cruising. Our deluxe fleet of revolutionary Star-Ships promise contemporary comfort and unique on-board innovations, while our generous fully-inclusive offering combines affordability with great dining, exceptional service and immersive itineraries across Europe and France. We take great pride in ensuring every journey is perfectly planned, and each guest enjoys a relaxing, exciting and insightful river cruise experience, whether you’re sailing aboard our award-winning fleet or exploring a nearby town for the day.

We cruise the Rhine, Main, Danube, Saône and Rhône rivers, with journeys ranging from eight to 17 days. Once integral trade and transportation routes are now gateways to cultural enlightenment, and there’s no finer way to navigate these treasured landmarks than on board Europe’s newest fleet of river cruise ships. From the many UNESCO World Heritage Sites, fairy-tale castles and grandiose cathedrals of mainland Europe, to France’s laid-back rural southern region where a sleepy way of life dominates the water’s edge; explore our collection of river cruises today and take the first step in embarking on the journey of a lifetime.
