At Emerald Waterways, when we say all-inclusive, that's what we mean. Pack your bags with ease knowing that whatever your need is... we have you covered. From your meals, to your travel transfers, to your incredible onshore experiences, everything is included in the price of your vacation.
We're passionate about providing our guests with the very best. That’s what drives us, cruise after cruise, journey after journey.
Explore Europe from a unique perspective with our thoughtfully crafted itineraries. Our river cruises range from 8 to 17 days and visit many fascinating villages, towns, and cities. From the Danube to the Rhine to the Saône, we will take you to stunning locations and give you opportunities to immerse yourself in each culture. We also offer special activities that uncover more than the usual tourist attractions with our EmeraldPLUS experiences. Check out our European river cruise itineraries to find out more.
Our custom built Star-Ships offer more space per guest than most other vessels on Europe’s waterways. At over 440 feet long, we 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 our Horizon Bar & 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 our inclusive experience, all of your dining and highlight meals are included in the price of your cruise. From a delicious meal in our Reflections Restaurant to an alfresco breakfast or light lunch on the Terrace, you can delight in culinary diversity. Our chefs prepare the dishes with great care and to the highest quality, inspired by the local cuisine and its ingredients. Quench your thirst with our complimentary beer, wine, and soft drinks that we serve with lunch and dinner or sip on a delightful cup of tea or coffee.
All of our 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 us. To replace the standard French Balcony suites that are common on river cruise ships, we have transformed the concept by creating a new type of indoor balcony. With a separate, decked area and our 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.
