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.

Shipboard facilities

With a capacity of 112 passengers and cutting-edge amenities, Emerald Radiance represents river cruising's next generation. The Portuguese sun provides the best opportunity to enjoy the open-air amenities of ship's Sun Deck. The top deck of Emerald Radiance features a large area to relax, enjoy a barbecue or sink balls on the putting green. Passengers can also benefit from the serenity pool.

The popular Horizon Bar & Lounge has been added to Emerald Radiance, providing an after-dinner retreat. A comprehensive selection of spa facilities and gym equipment are available in the wellness and fitness areas.
