Emerald Cruises is a relatively new river cruise line, having launched in 2013 as a sister brand of Scenic Tours with the desire to innovate the river cruise industry. The leading small-ship cruise line offers both ocean (yacht) and river cruises, headquartered in the UK and offering sailings in Europe, Asia, Africa and Russia. Emerald Cruises offers some of the most premium ships in the industry, with its deluxe fleet of Star-Ships boasting sun decks, heated pools, modern cabins and even an onboard cinema. While the cruise line offers a super-premium all-inclusive experience and ships are five-star floating hotels, sailing with Emerald Cruises is all about the destination – and passengers can book a range of pre- and post-cruise programmes, particularly in Israel, Egypt and Jordan.
Emerald Cruises recently announced the launch of Emerald Yacht Cruises, its new sister brand, which will include the brand's first super-yacht, Emerald Azzurra, set to sail along the Red Sea and the Med from December 2021. Also due to launch this year is Emerald Cruises' ninth Star-Ship, Emerald Luna. Set to sail along the Danube and Rhine rivers, she will offer the same unrivalled comfort and contemporary design of the rest of the line's European Star-Ship fleet.
Emerald Radiance, ship details
The Emerald Radiance will explore Portugal’s Douro region, navigating the eponymous river Douro. Dissecting some of Europe’s most beautiful vineyards and wine-producing villages, the river Douro evocatively stretches through beautiful backdrops on either bank. Fittingly, the bespoke Emerald Radiance has been lovingly designed and built to complement the jaw-dropping scenery unfolding before the ship’s bow.Full ship details
