Emerald Sky a hit with Daily Mail writer

It would appear that the anticipation has been well met as publications from across the world have been singing the company’s praises ever since their launch in April.

One of the latest publications to speak warmly of Emerald Waterways and their incredible European river cruise options is the widely read national newspaper The Daily Mail. One of their well regarded cruise writers, Caroline Hendrie, enjoyed the comfort and contemporary setting of her Emerald Sky accommodation, reporting on her trip in her article, ‘Making a splash on a cruise to Cologne: An epic voyage on a riverboat with a difference’.

‘Attract a younger set of British holidaymakers’

Hendrie commented on the ‘impressive’ contemporary design of the Emerald Sky Star-Ship saying that ‘The vessel's impressive three-storey atrium, with steep glass-sided stairs, is filled with light; mirrored walls reflect three twinkling balls with hundreds of bulbs’ in the article.

The Daily Mail travel writer seemed particularly taken with the swimming pool aboard the Emerald Sky, even trying to squeeze in ‘another 20 lengths in the pool’ before sailing on to Basel. The pool, which innovatively transforms into a fully working cinema in the evening, was another hit, giving the writer the chance to experience watching ‘Daniel Craig in Skyfall hurtling across a floor-to-ceiling screen’ against the backdrop of Europe’s waterways.

Quite rightly, Hendrie described this as a unique feature that makes Emerald Waterways’ brand new vessels stand out ‘in the crowd of new vessels on Europe's rivers this year.’

Set ‘to attract a younger set of British holidaymakers,’ Emerald Waterways’ river cruise holidays give guests ‘plenty to do’ according to Hendrie, where she found her time divided between swimming lengths of the pool, watching films in the cinema, enjoying walking tours and activities and sampling delicious ‘beer and traditional German snacks.’
