Review of Emerald Star
Emerald Star (built in 2014) is the first among Emerald Waterways identical sister ships, with fleetmates Emerald Sky, Emerald Sun, Emerald Dawn and Emerald Destiny (2017). The expansion of the fleet continues in 2017 with the launch of Emerald Radiance (Portugal) and Emerald Liberte (France).
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 Star adds more choices of itineraries and sailing dates for the aficionados of European luxury river cruise ship travel – an all-inclusive style.
Emerald Star has a total of 92 staterooms in 5 categories for 182 guests served by 47 crew members. All cabins have maximum capacity of 2 passengers per cabin. 75% of all rooms are Suites with a balcony (in-room/step-out veranda).
Like most of the newest luxury river ships, Emerald Star has 4 passenger decks, night cinema covered with sliding roof, indoor swimming pool, Gym, Spa, massage room, 1 elevator and passenger-use bikes,
