Emerald Waterways Christmas and New Year

Christmas cruises 2017 New Year's Eve


The Emerald cruise line serves typical European river travel afficionados. These are usually well-educated, 55+ river cruising veterans. The line also aims at younger demographic with its onboard amenity upgrades, like the indoor swimming pool that transforms into an outdoor cinema.

As is the case with most European river travel companies, Emerald Christmas and New Year voyages include boat transfers and shore excursions/tours within the cost to the overall fare. However, unusual and in-depth shore excursions are offered optionally, and for a fee. Water, tea and coffee, as well as beer and house wine with dinner are ticket price-included. The line also arranges flights on case-by-case basis.

Noticeable is that throughout your time on board, each member of the staff/crew maintains a perfect balance between friendly and professional.
