Emerald Liberte

Take to the Saone and Rhône rivers and experience the France of past and present. Travelling from Lyon to Avignon, Emerald Liberte will skilfully explore culturally-rich and enigmatic cities before heading through wine regions and charming Mediterranean settlements of France.

Suites, staterooms and public spaces are perfectly arranged over four decks – providing endless opportunity for relaxation. With the Mediterranean sun shining down, there’s no better place to be than the open-air sun deck, blessed with a large area to sit back and relax, have a BBQ with new friends or sink a few balls on the putting green.

The attention to food and knowledge of wine you’d expect in France are tied together to give you the most wonderful exquisite dining service. Reflections Restaurant promises an array of appetising choices in the most charming of settings, whether you’re enjoying a five-course dining experience or helping yourself to some local delicacies. Alternatively The Terrace café is a lovely spot for some al-fresco dining.

During days on the move, it’s always possible to indulge in a little ‘me time’ onboard Emerald Liberte, especially with a skilled hairdresser bobbing and weaving on the Riviera Deck. A wide-ranging selection of gym equipment and spa facilities are also available to all guests in the wellness and fitness areas – keeping you treated and toned throughout your sailing. Enjoy the indoor heated pool, which roof retracts in the day providing a perfect relaxing Oasis.
