At over 440 feet long, which boast five types of contemporary cabins and unique onboard innovations, like a heated pool that turns into a cinema at night. Enjoy various cultural highlights from the intimacy of the river, and after a day of exploring the land, unwind in the Horizon Bar and Lounge. Bask in the beauty of the incredible scenery and architecture along the rivers’ banks, whether from the privacy of your suite or the openness of the Sun Deck.
As part of Emerald Cruises inclusive experience, all of your dining and highlight meals are included in the price of your cruise. From a delicious meal in the Reflections Restaurant to an alfresco breakfast or light lunch on the Terrace, you can delight in culinary diversity. The chefs prepare the dishes with great care and to the highest quality, inspired by the local cuisine and its ingredients. Quench your thirst with complimentary beer, wine, and soft drinks that are served with lunch and dinner or sip on a delightful cup of tea or coffee.
All of the ships offer a range of beautiful and spacious cabins for you to choose from, including the Emerald Panorama Balcony Suite – a new type of cabin designed and built by Emerald Cruises. To replace the standard French Balcony suites that are common on river cruise ships, Emerald Cruises has transformed the concept by creating a new type of indoor balcony. With a separate, decked area and an ingenious open-air system, you can interact with the outdoors with the touch of a button. The upper half of the cabin’s floor-to-ceiling window drops down to let in fresh air and allows you to connect with the landscape.
Unfortunately because of the high water level in Rhine we got off the ship from Wazburg and continued the trip by land. Not as comfortable and convenient as when we were on the ship but the staff of Emerald gave the best accommodation they could get.
Great cruise. Congenial group. The weather cooperated. Food excellent. Service efficient and polite.
We had a great cruise with no issues whatsoever.
We had an outstanding trip down the Danube on Emerald Waterways. The food was amazing, the service was absolutely top-notch, the places we stopped (Passau, Linz and Cesky Krumlov, Vienna, Bratislava, and Budapest) were all wonderful in their own way. The options provided by Emerald (active vs. included, and the add-on activities) were just right. Our Cruise Director and the Activity Manager were very knowledgeable and attentive throughout our trip. As alway, Affordable Tours helped us book, and provided great follow-up care when we needed it.
Emerald was awesome. It offered us cultural experience that was unusual and authentic. We felt like we got to know the countries we visited. We are looking to book with Emerald again in Europe. Local and tour Director was the best
