Trio of New Emerald Waterways Ships Take to the Rivers of Europe

Earlier this spring, Emerald Waterways welcomed three new fleet members to the waters of Europe, taking the total roster of ships to seven. Maintaining Emerald Waterways’ high standards of luxurious passage through the most beautiful stretches of the continent, the three ships have already delighted hundreds of passengers.

This represents a huge step for our river cruise line, having only launched our very first river cruise ship in 2014. In just three years, we have grown to become one of the best known and best loved river cruise lines in Europe.

Emerald Radiance is our first river cruise ship custom built to navigate the beautiful River Douro through Portugal and into Spain. With a generously-sized open-air Sun Deck, Emerald Radiance is perfect for guests to enjoy the warmth of the Iberian sun as they gently float between the delightful vineyards of the Douro region.

Taking to the Rhône and Saône, Emerald Liberté has been designed and built to replicate the laid-back beauty of the region. Navigating from the culinary capital of Europe, Lyon, to the medieval southern cities of France, Emerald Liberté makes its way through some of the continent’s most delightful regions.

And finally, Emerald Destiny will join the Sun, Sky, Star and Dawn sailing through the heart of Europe on the rivers Rhine, Main and Danube. Built to the same specifications as our much-loved Star-Ships, Emerald Destiny will provide the same high-class standard of service within the chic, contemporary surroundings that Emerald Waterways’ guests have come to expect.

David Winterton, Global Brand Curator for Emerald Waterways, enthused: “We are thrilled to unveil the Emerald Liberté, Radiance and Destiny, as we continue to build on our fleet of innovative river ships, currently the youngest on European waters.

“When building our latest ships, it was important to listen to our guests, and the overwhelming feedback was that they love our relaxed, contemporary design which complements our fully-inclusive approach when crafting our cruise itineraries.”

River cruise itineraries on-board these three new ships are on sale for 2017 and 2018 sailings, alongside journeys on the other members of the Star-Ship fleet. Providing luxurious passage between many of the continent’s most delightful regions, the Emerald Waterways fleet provides the finest way to explore the delights of Europe.
