Emerald Waterways River Cruise Ships

Emerald Star | Emerald Sky | Emerald Sun | Emerald Dawn | Emerald Liberté | Emerald Radiance
A river cruise is one of the most elegant and worry-free ways to travel. On board your deluxe ship, all your meals are included with beer, wine and soft drinks served during lunch and dinner. Tea and coffee are always available and you’ll have bottled water restocked daily in your cabin. And with capacity for only 182 guests on board our ships, we offer a truly intimate cruising experience. Not only will you enjoy a continuous view of the incredible landscapes along the famous waterways, but you’ll see a different side of Europe - one that can only be experienced on the rivers that have helped shape the history and cultures of the places they weave through.

Emerald Waterways revolutionary ‘Star-Ships’ aren’t like other river cruise ships. They’re designed to impress and inspire with every little detail, exceeding any expectation you have of what a river cruise ship would be like. With its striking minimalistic design, sleek composition and stylish features, an Emerald Waterways ship is comparable to a contemporary designed hotel. Only it’s better, because your hotel travels with you to a multitude of fantastic destinations and offers incredible panoramic views of the stunning scenery you pass along the way.

We don’t want to just meet your expectations; we aim to create spectacular surprises that exceed what you would expect from a river cruise ship. That’s why our new deluxe ships boast a heated swimming pool complete with retractable roof - creating a brilliant onboard oasis for you to relax, whatever the weather. And on selected evenings, the pool area inventively transforms into a cinema showing a collection of films.


It's amazing what's included:

  • All airport transfers to and from the ship on day of embarkation and disembarkation 
  • Spectacular ship innovations such as the onboard pool and cinema*, and our innovative open air system in cabins on the Vista & Horizon decks 
  • All meals* and a collection of highlight dinners in the Reflections restaurant
