On an Emerald Waterways river cruise, you can expect stylish and spacious ships, designed to ensure the most comfortable journey. What you wouldn’t have expected is a brand new fleet, custom-built to offer more space per guest than most other operators and to incorporate many spectacular ship innovations, unique to river cruising.
On an Emerald Waterways river cruise, you can expect great dining experiences from start to finish. Each of our cruises begins with a Welcome Dinner where you’ll meet other guests, and ends with a Farewell Dinner where you can share memories with new-found friends. Our experienced chefs take great pride in preparing dishes of the highest quality and ensuring their menus showcase the fantastic cuisine Europe has to offer.
Every day, you’ll enjoy a hot and cold buffet for breakfast and lunch with an array of appetisers, main course choices and a collection of sweet treats at the dessert table. In the evenings, we invite you to be our special guest at a four-course dinner serving delicious international and regional speciality dishes.
On the Horizon Deck, you'll find our largest suites, including our Owner's One-bedroom suites, Grand Balcony Suites, and Emerald Panorama Balcony Suites. The Horizon Deck is also home to our Pool/Cinema, Horizon Bar and Lounge, and The Terrace.
Every suite on the Vista Deck comes with an Emerald Panorama Balcony, giving our guests the best views as we sail down the river. Vista Deck is also home to reception, the wellness and fitness areas, and Reflections Restaurant, where all on board meals are included.
Whether you're enjoying a light breakfast al-fresco on The Terrace, or a delectable four-course dinner in Reflections Restaurant in the evening, you can expect great dining experiences from start to finish.
Whether you want to sneak in an early morning work out, or you're looking for a late afternoon pampering session, head down to our Wellness & Fitness Areas
