MS Swiss Emerald, sister ship to ms Swiss Jewelms Swiss Sapphirems Esprit and ms Treasures, was christened in Dordrecht in March 2006 by Trudy Koolen, manager of the Scylla office in Belgium.

MS Swiss Emerald wiki

  • In March-April 2017, Swiss Emerald riverboat was drydock refitted and refurbished. Its passenger capacity was reduced from 118 to 98 (17% reduction) and the staterroms number was decreased from 59 to 49. The ship's reconstruction created larger public areas and bigger passenger cabins. The most extensive changes were done on Ruby (middle) Deck, where the 30x cabins (sized 14 m2 / 150 ft2) were replaced by 20x cabins (sized 21 m2 / 225 ft2). The ship already had 14x suites (sized 28 m2 / 300 ft2). Following the 2018 drydock, nearly 70% of all staterooms are 21 m2. On Diamond (upper) Deck "The Bistro" restaurant was renamed "Arthur's" and upgraded with its own galley (kitchen) and dedicated chef.
  • The same deckplan changes were done to the fleetmates and sisterships Swiss Sapphire (in 2017) and in 2018 - to MS Esprit and MS Treasures.
