Review of Emerald Sky
MS Emerald Sky cruise ship (built 2014) is the 2nd among Emerald Waterways sisterships, with fleet mates Emerald Star, Emerald Sun, Emerald Dawn and Emerald Destiny (2017). Company's fleet expansion continued in 2017 with the launches of 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 Sky has a total of 92 staterooms in 5 categories for 182 guests served by 47 crew members. All cabins have a maximum capacity of 2 passengers per cabin. 75% of all rooms are Suites with a balcony (in-room/step-out veranda).
The ship has 4 passenger decks, starting with the turf-lined Sun Deck at the top, which is encircled by a jogging track and offers a trio of putting greens. One of the most innovative features on any of Emerald Waterways cruise ships is the dual-purpose pool and movie theater on the Horizon Deck. A glass ceiling above can slide open in good weather. Emerald Sky also has a Gym, Spa, massage room, 1 elevator, and passenger-use bikes.
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.
