Featured Itineraries - New for 2017!

‘Secrets of the Douro river cruise’


Emerald Radiance will sail Emerald Waterways’ brand-new itinerary along the Douro!
Guests who choose this 8-day Douro cruise will enjoy key stops in Portugal, from the World Heritage city of Porto to the magnificent Roman settlement of Regua, plus visits to Veda de Terron and Salamanca in Spain.


‘Sensations of Southern France river cruise’


Emerald Liberte will offer an eight-day voyage from Lyon to Arles featuring the charming Rhone and Saone Rivers. On this mesmerizing cruise through the South of France, guests will enjoy visits to Chalon-Sur-Saone, Tournon and Avignon!




Two New Ships!

Both new ships will bring Emerald Waterways’ fleet to a total of seven and while they are both to become Star-Ships, they will be smaller versions of the well-known original design! Why? To take advantage of the river’s structures.

First up, Emerald Liberte – set to explore France on the Rhone and Saone rivers! Carrying 138 guests in 70 suites and staterooms, she will be 110m in length with 43 crew members. The second new ship launching 2017 is Emerald Radiance – dedicated to a brand new itinerary that voyages Portugal’s picturesque Douro River. At 89m long, carrying just 112 guests Emerald Radiance is a smaller Star-Ship with a total of 56 suites and staterooms and 37 crew members.

Guests who sail aboard these brand new ships will have a choice of two restaurants; Reflections, the main dining room, and The Terrace for light breakfast and lunch, plus guests can also enjoy the new type of cabin design that replaces the standard French balcony with an indoor balcony concept, complete with decked area and an ingenious open-air system. The only difference being with Emerald Radiance, which will have a pool on top deck as opposed to an indoor pool and will lose the cinema area.

More details to be released soon...
