Our awards

Experience Emerald Value first-hand

Emerald Waterways’ custom-built Star-Ships were voted ‘Best New River Ships’ in the 2014 Cruise Critic Editors’ Picks awards, which has been followed up by awards in 2016 and 2017. 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.
