Emerald Sky and Star

Explore our award-winning Star-Ships from bow to stern and uncover just what makes Emerald Waterways so special  

Experience the Emerald Sky and Star

Journey down some of Europe’s magical stretches of water as you explore many of the most enchanting cities on the continent from the comfort of Emerald Sky and Emerald Star, while our onshore excursions encourage you to delve into secrets just waiting to be uncovered.

Expertly navigating the Rhine, Main, Danube and Moselle rivers, our contemporary Star-Ships have been specially designed to mirror the beauty of these majestic waterways. This can be seen reflected in the décor on board each vessel and within the iconic features like our three-tiered atriums.

The Horizon Bar & Lounge is the social heartbeat of the Emerald Sky and Emerald Star, with a comprehensively-stocked bar and skilled bartenders who will make every day one of complete relaxation. Our Reflections Restaurant is a place where you can enjoy delectable meals that have been specially prepared by our chefs, who take inspiration from the countries that we pass through and make the most of the regional ingredients that surround us.

At the back of the Horizon Deck you can enjoy the peaceful surrounds of our on-board heated pool, where you will have ample opportunity to go for a dip during the day. On selected evenings, this space seamlessly transforms into a cinema where we will play the latest blockbusters and timeless classics for you to enjoy.

Both of these vessels benefit from ninety-two generously-proportioned suites and staterooms, from which you can admire the views that we sail past in complete comfort, with luscious toiletries, a queen-size or twin hotel-style bed and a TV and infotainment system. Four Owner’s One-Bedroom Suites are also available, each of which contains a complimentary minibar, walk-in wardrobe and an invitation to dine at the Captain’s Table.
