What to Expect On-Board an Emerald Waterways Star-Ship

Before embarking on a river cruise, guests are often eager to find out what to expect from their time out on the water. So, with this in mind, Emerald Waterways are here to help.

Dress Code

On-board an Emerald Waterways Star-Ship, it’s very much a ‘comfortable is best’ attitude so smart-casual is the expected form of dress. In the evening, we think you’ll agree, it’s always nice to dress up for your meal so, for the gents, it’s open-neck shirts and smart trousers and, for the ladies, dresses, skirts or smart trousers will do nicely. Smart shoes to accompany, but jackets and ties are optional.

For your days onshore, you may choose to do some walking as you make the most of your daily excursions so, walking boots and waterproofs will be sure to make your perusals easier, and the sometimes unpredictable weather simpler to manage.

On-Board Currency

The currency used on all Emerald Waterways cruises is Euros (€).

Guest Testimonial

Travel Editor at The Times, Jane Knight spent time on-board the Emerald Star and had this to say: "The cool way to cruise in Europe." "Emerald cuts a pretty sleek profile on the river. As I sit in front of the big screen, stars twinkling above the opened roof, it's pretty special. In fact, it's on the way to being as good as it gets"

Where Emerald Waterways Visit

The beauty of a river cruise is that it’s not just each destination that delights guests. Each river, whether it’s the Rhine, Main, Danube, Douro or Rhone, allows you to see locations from different perspectives.

Docking centrally in wonderful cities like Vienna, where you can tour the Schonbrunn Palace, or Budapest, where you can walk the Iron Bridge, and Amsterdam where you can learn about the nation’s history at the Rijksmuseum, educates you on a country’s history and gives you an insight into its future.
