Review of Emerald Dawn

Emerald Dawn (built in 2015) is the 4th among Emerald Waterways ships, preceded by her fleetmates Emerald Star, Emerald Sky, Emerald Sun and followed by Emerald Destiny in 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 Dawn adds more choices of itineraries and sailing dates for the aficionados of European luxury river cruise ship travel – an all-inclusive style.

Cabins

Emerald Dawn 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). 

Shipboard facilities

Like most of the newest luxury river ships, Emerald Dawn has 4 passenger decks, night cinema covered with sliding roof, indoor swimming pool, Gym, Spa, massage room, 1 elevator and passenger-use bikes.

Meals onboard are served in the Reflections Restaurant, which is ship's main dining room.  Dinners at Reflections are open seating with table service. There is also a buffet station at dinner as well as omelette station at breakfast. Emerald Dawn offers an al-fresco dining area, The Terrace, at the bow of ship as an informal dining venue for breakfast and lunch. Two bars are also available: the Sky Bar on top deck; and the Horizon Bar and Lounge, with floor-to-ceiling windows (offering hot entrees, cold cuts, soups and other snacks, as well as a salad bar at lunchtime). Weather permitting, lunch and dinner special buffets are held at various times on the open deck.

The most innovative, new-to-river feature of the ship is the dual-purpose area at the aft of Emerald Dawn that transforms from a heated indoor pool with retractable roof during the day, to a movie theater at night, showing classic movies and recent releases.

Emerald Dawn itinerary program offers Scenic Tours Europe river cruises on Danube, Rhine and Main rivers.
