The Independent recommends Emerald Waterways for 2015

The publisher praises the packages for deluxe river cruises in Europe that Emerald Waterways has become known for, which include pretty much everything, even tipping, and mentions the two new ‘Star-Ships’ that are to be launched in April and June this year. The swimming pool, which turns into a cinema at night, also receives a special mention in the Independent article.

According to the Independent, European river cruising is the fastest growing sector of the travel industry, with more than 50 new river vessels taking to the water in the past year. This makes the mention in the article all the more rewarding and is hopefully a taste of good things to come for Emerald Waterways in 2015.

Why not try river cruising in 2015?

As mentioned in the article, the river cruising season typically runs from March until November, although we also provide itineraries which visit numerous destinations famous for their Christmas markets during the festive period. For those that may be familiar with ocean cruises, river cruises offer a smaller and friendlier atmosphere, and can reach towns and cities which may be more difficult for larger ships.

The article states that the Rhine and Danube attract the highest number of cruisers, due to popular destinations such as Cologne, Vienna and Budapest, which are all visited on a number of itineraries provided by Emerald Waterways. Our river cruises also include the price of the excursions, meaning that those taking a trip on board can make the most of the destinations visited without any added cost. However, with many destinations having docks right in the centre, you are able to explore by yourselves if you so wish.

Also, Emerald Waterways is able to provide alternatives to flying for those that prefer to travel alternatively, with options to use the Eurostar available.
