On-Board Entertainment

Spectacular settings and entertaining evenings

With Emerald Waterways the journey is just as important as the destination. It’s about enjoying every moment and creating memories that will last a lifetime. That’s why we believe that entertainment is an integral part of your cruise experience.

To ensure there’s never a dull moment on board, our Cruise Directors oversee a fantastic range of entertainment activities for you to enjoy. From our ever-popular crew show and bar quizzes to local performances in a traditional style, you’ll have plenty of options to choose from.

Our crew members will be on hand to answer any questions you may have about our entertainment schedule and point you in the direction of the latest activities taking place on board. With so much to choose from, you’ll be spoilt for choice. 

Horizon Bar & Lounge

The Horizon Bar & Lounge is the social heartbeat of our Star-Ships. Surprisingly spacious and exceedingly modern, this contemporary and comfortable haven is one of the most popular areas of our vessels day or night.

There's a fully stocked bar with attentive bartenders, help-yourself to a selection of coffees from out high-tech coffee-machine, or try one of our speciality teas, and take a seat in our plush and spacious sofas and chairs. In the day it's a place to catch up with new friends and unwind.

Each evening before dinner, your Cruise Director welcomes you to the Horizon Bar and Lounge for an informal yet fascinating talk on your forthcoming ports of call. With tips on what you'll see and things to look out for, this is an ideal opportunity to plan for the day ahead. When the evening arrives, we have a medley of entertainment planned especially for you.

After Dinner Entertainment

After another delicious dinner in our Reflections Restaurant, head up to the Horizon Bar and Lounge to listen to your resident pianist play. Relax with your favourite cocktail and catch up with your new found friends.

On select evenings guests are invited to watch local performances in the traditional style. From a Bavarian band to Hungarian dancing, there's no finer way to celebrate the native culture than in the comfort of familiar surroundings.

The Horizon Bar & Lounge also plays host to challenging quizzes and our popular crew show. This jovial event happens at the end of every cruise after the Farewell Dinner.

Innovation To Enjoy

Enjoy our indoor heated pool which transforms into our evening cienma area and Riverview Lounge where you can relax and admire the views through the floor-to-ceiling wrap around windows.

Lights, camera, action - grab your popcorn and take your seat in our evening cinema

Make your way to the back of the ship where our indoor heated pool is situated. When the evening arrives this oasis of calm is transformed into a hub of entertainment.

Watch in awe as the floor rises through the pool's surface and a screen is lowered from above. In a matter of minutes the area is converted from a swimming pool into a cosy cinema where a selection of classic and contemporary films are shown throughout your cruise.

Legendary concerts and an intimate place to unwind and relax

On selected evenings the cinema will play host to a variety of iconic concerts performed by some of the world's most significant musicians. Popular music, classical and jazz are just some of the genres you can expect to see on the big screen.

New for 2017, our live music showcase is just another was to ensure you enjoy an unforgettable river cruise. We're always looking for exciting and unexpected ways to entertain our guests and we're sure that you will love our collection of fun and inspirational performances.
