Review of Emerald Liberte
MS Emerald Liberte cruise ship is a newbuild riverboat (introduced in 2017) designed for Southern France river shipping. Itineraries are along Rhone and Saone rivers, with departures from homeports Lyon and Avignon. The standards of service, knowledge of wine and food quality you’d expect in France are sewn into the very essence of the boat. Company's fleet expansion in 2017 also included the launches of Emerald Destiny and Emerald Radiance.
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.
With a capacity of 138 passengers and cutting-edge amenities, Emerald Liberte represents river cruising's next generation. The Mediterranean climate provides the best opportunity to enjoy the open-air amenities of ship's Sun Deck. The top deck of Emerald Liberte features a large area to relax, enjoy a barbecue or sink balls on the putting green. The retractable glass roof winds back to reveal a beautiful swimming pool, so guests can enjoy the gentle river breeze.
The popular Horizon Bar & Lounge has been added to Emerald Liberte, providing an after-dinner retreat. A comprehensive selection of spa facilities and gym equipment are available in the wellness and fitness areas.
Note: You can see the CruiseMapper's list of all river cruise ships and riverboats in the "itinerary" section of our River Cruises hub. All companies and their fleets are listed there.
