Emerald's innovative river ships have heated swimming pools with retractable roofs (this space converts to a movie theater on some evenings), as well as balcony suites that open to the outdoors with the push of a button.
Expertly guided excursions in port include EmeraldACTIVE hiking, biking and canoeing activities and the EmeraldPLUS program, which helps passengers explore the local culture in depth. For example, on Sensations of Lyon & Provence, guests can hike through vineyards in Tournon, embark on a canoeing trip in Avignon and enjoy a regional wine tasting and Provencal dinner on board the ship. The fleet is also equipped with bicycles that guests can use ashore.
Emerald will debut two new itineraries next year. The 10-day Danube Explorer & Highlights of Budapest visits five countries in central Europe and includes a Bavarian brunch at a farm in Passau and a folklore show in Budapest. Rhine Castles & Moselle Vineyards introduces two new ports for the company -- Utretcht and Nijmegen in the Netherlands. This 11-day trip features a canal cruise through Dutch waterways and a visit to the windmills of Kinderdijk, a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Emerald also offers upscale oceangoing yacht cruises in destinations like the Mediterranean, the Caribbean and Central America. These intimate vessels accommodate up to 100 guests each, and all staterooms and suites offer ocean views and deluxe amenities. You'll enjoy spacious lounges, spa and fitness facilities, an infinity pool and daily entertainment. The ships are also equipped with Zodiacs, snorkeling gear, paddleboards, floating platforms and water trampolines. To see all of these departures, click here.
