Emerald Waterways introduced new brand Emerald Yacht Cruises which is complete with a new luxury yacht scheduled to sail in July 2021 on ocean cruises.
The 7-deck, 5300-ton superyacht Emerald Azzurra accommodates 100 passengers (48 staterooms) plus 68 crew. She will boast elegant cabins with large beds, fine dining restaurants, a wellness centre (complete with a gym, sauna, and spa), a marina platform for adventures like snorkelling, paddleboarding or swimming, and a large pool with a glass front.
Some staterooms will offer living areas ideal for relaxing before dinner. 88% of all cabins will have a balcony.
The food offering onboard will feature local flavours, gourmet dishes, and cocktails. Guests will have 3 restaurants and bars to choose from, including a poolside hotspot.
The smaller size of the vessel means she can get into ports that larger ships cannot access. The itineraries feature 47 options spanning destinations like Italy, Greece, Montenegro, Malta, Cyprus, Turkey, Spain, and France, as well as Egypt, Israel, and Jordan.
Highlights include an 8-day Cyprus, Turkey & Greece Delights from GBP 3,285 pp, and 8-day French & Italian Rivieras with Corsica from GBP 2,965 pp, and a 12-day Ancient World Wonders from GBP 5,245 pp.
The 110-metre cruise ship is currently being constructed in Ha Long City, Vietnam.
