The next generation of river cruising
Emerald Cruises have focused on creating an exceptional European river cruising experience that's also incredible value for money.
Unlike any other on Europe's rivers, their ships boast a heated swimming pool with retractable roof, which ingeniously transforms into an on-board cinema. They've also created a completely new type of cabin - the Emerald Panorama Balcony Suite. To replace the run-of-the-mill French Balcony, these suites incorporate an ingenuous open-air system and an indoor balcony, complete with decking area and chairs.
Their itineraries are great too: they've carefully crafted a collection of cruise itineraries which range from 8 to 15 days, and take you to many of the most fantastic villages, towns and cities lining Europe's rivers.
Bringing the highlights of ocean cruising to the world of river cruising
Emerald Cruises don’t want to meet your expectations; they aim to create spectacular surprises that you wouldn’t ever expect from a boutique river cruise ship. That’s why their new deluxe ships boast a heated swimming pool complete with retractable roof and bar – creating a brilliant on-board oasis for you to relax in, whatever the weather. On selected evenings, the pool area inventively transforms into a cinema showing a collection of classic films and recent releases – taking on-board entertainment in a completely new direction.
