Review of Emerald Radiance

Launched in April 2017 (currently under construction), Emerald Radiance cruise ship has been custom-built to explore Portugal’s Douro region, while navigating Douro River.Emerald Radiance cruise ship, Douro River, Portugal

Emerald Waterways is a new river line, established in 2014 and owned by Scenic Tours company. Like the new longships of Viking River Cruises, the innovations onboard Emerald Waterways ships make these vessels an alternative to ocean cruise vacations. Emerald Destiny adds more choices of itineraries and sailing dates for the aficionados of European luxury river cruise ship travel – an all-inclusive style. 

With a capacity of 112 passengers and cutting-edge amenities, Emerald Radiance represents river cruising's next generation. The Portugese sun provides the best opportunity to enjoy the open-air amenities of ship's Sun Deck. The top deck of Emerald Radiance features a large area to relax, enjoy a barbecue or sink balls on the putting green. Passengers can also benefit from the serenity pool.

The popular Horizon Bar & Lounge has been added to Emerald Radiance, providing an after-dinner retreat. A comprehensive selection of spa facilities and gym equipment are available in the wellness and fitness areas.

Note: You can see the CruiseMapper's list of all river cruise ships and riverboats in the "itinerary" section of our River Cruises hub. All companies and their fleets are listed there.
