We’ll help to break down the costs you’ll encounter during your time on the water, and show you why Emerald Waterways river cruising is superb value for money. So, while the price of one cocktail on-board an ocean cruise might seem inexpensive at first, the more extras you enjoy, the more those hidden costs start to mount up.

It’s quite exceptional what our packages comprise of - complimentary Wi-Fi, port charges, and extra-special excursions all come as standard. Likewise, your flights to and from your river cruise destination of choice are included in the price. We’re committed to making river cruising as care-free, straightforward and low-cost as possible. For instance, on a 15-day trip you could save up to £440 in tips, an incredible saving simply not afforded by the hidden costs of ocean cruising.Many other river cruise lines do not include the above amenities in their prices – however, we strive to offer so much more on an Emerald Waterways river cruise. On-board our Star-Ships, relaxing to the fullest should be the only thing on your mind, so we offer a huge selection of luxurious extras and wonderful perks included in the price.
Plus, in the surroundings of our award-winning Star-Ships, relaxation starts the second you set foot on-board. Beyond the price of these awe-inspiring experiences, you’ll find our ships furnished with stunning comforts - the perfect place to retreat to after your day of discovery.
Once the sun has set, a new world of merriment opens up, as your Star-Ship turns into a bustling centre of entertainment complete with after-dinner delights such as Hungarian dancing and Bavarian band performances, as well as our well-stocked Horizon Bar & Lounge. A pop-up cinema featuring old classics and contemporary blockbusters transforms the pool area into a movie-lover’s dream, as the floor rises to the pool’s surface and a screen lowers from above. Letting, as cruise journalist Sara Macefield says: “Film fans snuggle into the cosy chairs, with a carton of popcorn and a tasty tipple from the nearby bar.”
