Review of Emerald Dawn
Launched in 2015, Emerald Dawn cruise ship is the 4th vessel in the Emerald Waterways fleet, preceded by the sisterships Emerald Star, Emerald Sky, Emerald Sun, Emerald Destiny and Emerald Luna. With similar Star-Ship design are the 2017-launched fleetmates Emerald Radiance (Portugal) and Emerald Liberte (France).
Emerald Waterways is a new river cruise shipping company (established 2014) and brand owned by Scenic Tours (shipowner). Like the new longships of Viking River Cruises, the innovations implemented on Emerald Waterways ships make these vessels an alternative to the ocean "small-ship cruising". Emerald Waterways adds more cruise tour itinerary choices and sailing dates for the aficionados of the all-inclusive European luxury riverboat travel vacations.
Emerald Dawn has a total of 92 staterooms in 8 categories for 182 guests served by 47 crew members. Excepting the single-occupancy category ES (Emerald Single Stateroom), all cabins are with double occupancy (max capacity 2 passengers per cabin). 75% of all rooms are Suites with a balcony (in-room/step-out veranda).
MS Emerald Dawn has 4 passenger decks (3 with cabins), Horizon Bar Lounge with outdoor Terrace seating (Deck 3 forward), Reflections Restaurant (Dining Room, Deck 2 forward), aft-Deck3 indoor swimming pool/night cinema (covered with sliding roof), wellness facilities (Gym, Spa and Beauty Salon, massage room), Sun Deck (Wheelhouse, games area with giant Tic-Tac-Toe, 3-hole Mini-Golf Putting Green, Walking Track, Sky Barbecue Bar, shaded seating, passenger-use bikes). One lift (passenger elevator) connects all cabin decks.
Meals onboard are served in the Reflections Restaurant, which is the 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 omelet station at breakfast. Emerald Dawn offers an al-fresco dining area, The Terrace, at the bow of the ship as an informal dining venue for breakfast and lunch. Two bars are also available: the Sky Bar on the 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 cruises on Danube, Rhine and Main rivers.
