Emerald Liberté

Thanks to the warm summers and moderate year-round temperatures of southern France, the Emerald Liberté will enjoy long cruise seasons.

Emerald Liberté

Specially commissioned to sail the Rhône and Saône as part of our Sensations of Southern France river cruise, Emerald Liberté is one of three Star-Ships added to the Emerald Waterways fleet in 2017.
Mirroring the effortless sophistication and beauty of the French countryside, this beautiful ship offers locally-sourced, authentic fine-dining to be paired with the perfect wine accompaniment by our on-board sommeliers, a level of service and attention-to-detail which is sewn into its very essence, providing an experience comparable to that of a world-class hotel. 
 
With a capacity of 136 guests, and a series of cutting-edge amenities, Emerald Liberté represents the next generation of river cruising. The suites, staterooms and public spaces are set across four beautifully-appointed decks, providing endless scope for relaxation and enjoyment whilst cruising.
 
Travelling from Lyon to Avignon, the ship will explore culturally-rich and enigmatic cities before dissecting the wine regions and charming Mediterranean settlements of France. The Mediterranean climate provides the perfect opportunity to enjoy the amenities of the Sun Deck, where you can sit back and relax or sink a few balls on the putting green. While the heated pool boasts a glass roof which is retractable to let in a cool breeze on a warm day. And, we’ve incorporated the hugely popular Horizon Bar & Lounge, offering the perfect setting for you to enjoy your favourite tipples.  
 
During days on the water, you can indulge in a little ‘me’ time aboard the Emerald Liberté, with a skilled hairdresser on the Riviera Deck, spa facilities and a well-equipped gym in the wellness and fitness area. Find your centre and feel thoroughly relaxed from start to finish.

We’ve put every effort into designing beautiful staterooms and suites, selecting the most elegant décor and furnishings to create a haven for you to relax in as you sail through the most picturesque landscapes. But, with our Emerald Panorama Balcony Suite, we’ve gone one step further and created a completely new type of suite that’s unique to European river cruising.

These spectacular suites boast our revolutionary indoor balcony design, complete with decking area, table and chairs, generating an entirely new space for you to enjoy the landscapes you pass. With the touch of a button, the upper part of the suite’s floor-to-ceiling window drops down to unveil uninterrupted views of the stunning scenery, opening up the suite and bringing the outdoors in. In our Emerald Panorama Balcony Suites, you’ll find a mini-fridge, perfect for storing any gifts that need keeping cool, such as chocolates, confectionery or special local drinks. You can use your mini-fridge to keep your complimentary bottled water cool too. You’ll also find a safe for your valuables and plenty of storage.

Each of our Grand Balcony Suites boasts a number of fantastic inclusions, such as an in-suite Nespresso™ machine for that added home comfort, so that you can relax with a hot beverage at any time, day or night. You’ll also have the option to order a delicious continental breakfast to enjoy on the balcony. And, for the perfect start and finish to your evening meal, you can enjoy pre-dinner canapés and after-dinner sweet treats courtesy of your exclusive room service, which is included in the price of your suite.

Grand Balcony Suites also offer a spacious outdoor balcony, allowing you to make the most of the beautiful landscapes and take in the fresh air. Should the weather take a turn for the worse, you needn’t worry because all it takes is the touch of a button and our state-of the-art open-air system gets to work. The window rises from the balcony and encloses the area so that you can still sit out and admire the views together.
