Emerald Cruises comprises two distinct experiences - river and yacht cruises.


At Emerald Cruises, 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.


Our two luxury yachts, Emerald Azzurra and Emerald Sakara have been thoughtfully designed to allow us access to smallerports that others of their type cannot. This is intimate yacht cruising at itsfinest, as we sail into the heart of some of the most exciting destinations ofthe Mediterranean, the Adriatic Sea, the Red Sea, and the Caribbean & Central America.

From the Greek islands, Italy and the French Riviera, to Turkey, Egypt, Israel, Jordan and sun-kissed islands of the Caribbean, travel some of the world’s most celebrated seas and coastlines in contemporary luxury, docking close to the action, giving you more opportunity to explore independently and off the beaten track.

Reaching an impressive 110 metres in length, our spectacular new luxury yachts will exceed your yacht cruising expectations. And with an intimate 100 guests on board, there's an abundance of space throughout.

Discover a secluded spot to read a book, enjoy unimpeded views of the unspoiled landscapes, take a relaxing dip in the infinity-style pool, or arrange to meet fellow guests at one of our comfortable meeting spots.

We’ve uniquely designed every one of our suites and staterooms to become your own private haven, where everything you need is at your fingertips. Relax in your spacious, modern surrounds, enjoying a collection of luxurious amenities, as you sail into some of the most picturesque ports and harbors on Earth.

We’ve included everything you need to get the most out of your cruise, so you won’t have to spend a penny extra if you don’t want to.

Our exclusive EmeraldVALUE program provides you with unique encounters, sure to become the highlight of your adventure. Handpicked by our journey designers, you’ll meet locals from ancient communities, take part in insightful activities and embark on guided tours of some of the most prestigious premises in the world.

And, for the more active guest, our EmeraldACTIVE excursions consist of guided bike rides and hikes, for an alternative perspective on a location.
