Emerald Cruises unveiled the first images of its new luxury superyacht, Emerald Azzurra, after her launch last month.

The 100-passenger superyacht is the first of two sisterships in the fleet - to be followed by Emerald Sakara (debuting in Seychelles) in 2023.

Boasting designer furnishings throughout, the pool deck has proven a popular site for guests to relax. Outfitted with Kettal lounge chairs Paola Lenti day loungers in cool tones complementing the infinity-style pool, the space also has a café serving healthy breakfast including smoothies and light-as-air flatbreads. Indoors, the Observation Lounge has a Dedon MBrace Wing Chair and footstool, along with sleek L’Object games like chess and tic tac toe for passengers to enjoy.

Of the 50 deluxe staterooms and suites, 88% feature private balconies, and each comes equipped with ESPA amenities and Missoni towels – the luxury line in the Elements Spa. The new superyacht has a guest laundry room with complimentary washers and dryers with detergent; laundry baskets, steamers, and irons, in addition to a full laundry service for a fee.

Setting sail for the first time from Aqaba-Petra (Jordan) last month, Azzurra features a luxurious small ship cruising experience to harbours only accessible to small yachts. The custom-built ship features various public areas such as a wellness center, which provides TechnoGym equipment and an infrared sauna - the first for a yacht of her size. The marina platform offers easy access to water sports like the use of SEABOBs and the latest in electric bikes from Gocycle.

Currently, Emerald Azzurra is sailing an 8-day "Mediterranean Enchantment" itinerary from Piraeus-Athens to Dubrovnik (ending on April 16). Fares for the 8-day "Mediterranean Enchantment" departing July 9th start from US$4505 per person with double occupancy. The voyage calls at Kefalonia Island (Argostoli-Fiskardo, Greece), Parga (Greece), Corfu Island (Kerkyra, Greece), Sarande (Albania), Kotor (Montenegro).
