Pool and Cinema

Our Heated Pool & Cinema

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

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 and coffees available at all times 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.

The deluxe ships boast a heated swimming pool complete with retractable roof, bar and gelato station - creating a brilliant onboard oasis for you to relax whatever the weather. On select evenings, the pool area inventively transforms into a cinema showing a collection of films.

Unlike any other on Europe's waters, our brand new boutique river cruise ships boast a heated pool complete with retractable roof and a bar. 

Watch our unique pool transform into a cinema.
