Our Star-Ships

Award-winning and innovative
Cutting a stylish and chic figure upon the rivers of Europe and Asia; Emerald Waterways’ fleet of Star-Ships perfectly marry modern design with deluxe comfort for all guests. Honouring the beauty of some of the world’s most aesthetically-stimulating waterways, each member of the fleet has been deliberately and responsibly designed to match and complement the eternal flow of the rivers.

What our Star-Ships offer

On-board, this attention to detail continues throughout every feature and flourish, providing the most comfortable, luxurious and enjoyable of passages for all of our guests. Whether you prefer to while away peaceful hours in your lovingly appointed cabin or mingle with new friends in the ships’ versatile, spacious and welcoming public areas; every inch of the Emerald Waterways Star-Ships has been designed with comfort and enjoyment in mind.

The tasteful, modern décor of the fleet provides a wonderful setting for the days set in motion atop the waterways. From the crisp, clean linens in every one of the cabins, to the stylishly finished à la carte restaurants; the Emerald Waterways fleet has more in common with upmarket boutique hotels than traditional water-faring vessels.

During the summer months, the open air terrace on the top decks of our Star-Ships provides a fantastic setting to watch as the jaw-dropping scenery unfolds around the vessel. With a cold drink in hand, there are few more spectacular ways to explore our continent further afield than perched atop a luxury river cruise ship.

At Emerald Waterways, we are absolutely dedicated to ensuring that every aspect of your stay aboard our fleet of Star-Ships goes above and beyond expectations. Throughout the ship, we have added extra amenities and features to make sure your voyage is as comfortable and enjoyable as possible, from multi-sensory shower units to extensive drinks menus.

And throughout your stay, our ships are complemented by our highly-trained, skilled and attentive crew, dedicated to ensuring your Emerald Waterways river cruise is unforgettable.
