Our awards

Experience Emerald Value first-hand

At the Cruise Critic UK Editors' Picks 2018 awards Emerald Waterways have been named the 'Best River Cruise Line for Value' for the fourth year running. Plus, this year we've also been awarded 'Best River Cruise Line for First-Timers'. After only a few years of gracing the rivers of Europe, it’s incredible to be recognised for our efforts in on-board innovation. It’s all part of our continued dedication to bringing the highlights of ocean cruising to the intimacy of the river.
