In 2017, we proudly welcomed the Emerald Liberté to the Emerald Waterways Star-Ship fleet – custom-built for river cruising in France. Emerald Liberté boasts a wealth of on board amenities including an open-air Sun Deck, providing the perfect setting for guests to enjoy the beautiful scenery and Mediterranean climes of this enchanting part of the world. You will also find the signature Emerald Waterways indoor pool; an oasis of calm with floor-to-ceiling windows and a retractable roof, providing seemingly endless views of picturesque vineyards and historic landmarks for you to enjoy as you take a leisurely swim.
The Reflections Restaurant is the centre-point of your on board dining experience, where delicious dining is accompanied by complimentary wine, beer and soft drinks with lunch and dinner. Handpicked by our sommeliers, local wines are certainly a highlight of our river cruises through the south of France.
The Terrace is the perfect spot for enjoying a light bite or drinks with friends as the southern stretches of France pass you by. At the end of a day exploring, retreat to your chic suite or stateroom, where you will find plush linens, sumptuous toiletries and a revitalising shower in your en-suite bathroom.
The intimate Emerald Liberté calls in at some of Southern France’s most delightful cities, towns and villages. From Lyon, recognised as one of the world’s great culinary cities, to Arles, van Gogh’s peaceful retreat and the inspiration for many of his most famous works of art, the Rhône and Saône set a course through this charming, historical stretch of France.
