Emerald Destiny

Emerald Destiny is one of five of our Emerald Waterways Star-Ships specially designed to traverse the Rhine, Main, Danube and Moselle rivers in style. With tasteful and modern décor visible throughout the ship, including in the form of our three-tiered atrium that allows natural light to pour in and illuminate the interior.

At the back of the Horizon Deck, you can find our daytime pool and evening cinema. This is a feature on all of the Star-Ships that sail along the Rhine, Maine, Danube and Moselle. With a retractable roof, floor-to-ceiling windows and picture perfect views; this is the ideal spot for a gentle swim. On selected evenings, the pool seamlessly transforms into a cinema, where you can watch a number of blockbusters and classic films.

Our Reflections Restaurant on the Vista Deck is the centre point of our dining experience on board, where sizeable windows offer excellent views of the surrounding landscapes and you can enjoy regional and seasonal flavours. For a more intimate experience, you can head to the contemporary Horizon Bar & Lounge, where authentic entertainment will be available on selected evenings.

Boasting more than ninety suites and staterooms, the Emerald Destiny has a lot to offer when it comes to comfort, with features that would be aligned with those of a world-class hotel. You can spend your time on this vessel relaxing as picturesque views pass by, watching them from your private balcony as we sail past.
