Videos: Why Emerald Waterways?

An Emerald Waterways river cruise brings the highlights of an ocean cruise to the intimacy of Europe’s most iconic rivers. We believe the journey is as important as the destination.

Every one of our unforgettable cruises has been designed to showcase the best of what the local region has to offer. Whether you’re exploring the romantic Rhine or tasting the port in Porto, you can look forward to an included excursion in almost every destination you visit.

Since launching in 2014, our fleet of Star-Ships have quickly gained not only a reputation, but also a number of awards for their style, modernity and innovation. We’ve created a number of videos that highlight the many fantastic features on board our Star-Ships, from our larger than average deluxe suites to the sun-deck, from our range of delicious dining options to the innovative heated pool, which turns itself into a cinema in the evening. Find out more about our staff and the service you can expect on board, and after you’ve seen what we have to say, why not watch interviews with our past guests to hear from them just how much they enjoyed their time with us.

You won’t, of course, be spending all of your time on board our Star-Ships.

Cruising on six different rivers, including the mighty Danube in Europe and the ever popular Mekong in Southeast Asia, Emerald Waterways visit a large number of awe-inspiring destinations. Watch our videos to get a sneak peek of just some of the rivers, cities, and historic landmarks that you can visit on an Emerald Waterways cruise. Get a taste of a Danube river cruise, explore Budapest, or even  get an exclusive look at one of our most popular highlights: a private concert in Vienna.
