MS River Cloud 2 cruise ship (Emerald Waterways)

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.


Most of Emerald Luna staterooms are outfitted with drop-down windows that transform the seating area into a comfortable balcony space. Emerald Luna has a total of 92 staterooms in 8 categories for 180 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 Luna 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).

The ship has two restaurants. The Reflections Restaurant is the main restaurant with open seating and table service. There is also a buffet station at dinner and omelet station at breakfast. The Terrace is the al-fresco dining area - an informal venue for breakfast and lunch. The Horizon Lounge has floor-to-ceiling windows and doubles as a casual lunch restaurant. Weather permitting, lunch and dinner special buffets are held at various times on the open deck.
