Emerald Waterways began sailing in 2014, and their new and exciting ships are certainly something to feel giddy about. You’ll certainly be impressed – one minute you’ll be saying goodnight to the medieval gem of Avignon and before you know it, saying good morning to Douro’s mesmerising Wine region. The sky’s the limit with Emerald Waterways and the fun is always endless.

You’ll sail down glittering waters in one of their eight star-ships, and trust us – it’s something special. They promise contemporary comfort, and with their attention to detail you can rest assured that you’ll spend your time onboard in style – it’s just like staying in an upmarket boutique hotel. With an open air terrace on the top decks, it’s the perfect place to sunbathe and take in the impressive scenery.

With return flights, all onboard meals, complimentary drinks, tips and transfers included -what’s not to love? With a 1:3 ratio of staff and guests, it’s safe to say you’ll receive that attentive service you deserve. With the added benefit of regional experts onboard, you’ll really get to know your destination. They’ll share old traditions, stories and act as an onboard tour guide to ensure you get the most out of your location.

Emerald Waterways have a treat in store for you – with every river cruise, you’ll experience at least one Emerald PLUS excursion. Taking you places that are out of reach to many others, your time with Emerald Waterways will be unique to say the least.
