Review of Emerald Sky

Emerald Sky (built in 2014) is the 2nd among Emerald Waterways ships, with fleetmates Emerald Star, Emerald SunEmerald Dawn and Emerald Destiny (2017). The expansion of the fleet continues in 2017 with the launch of Emerald Radiance (Portugal) and Emerald Liberte (France).

Emerald Waterways is a new river line, established in 2014 and owned by Scenic Tours company. Like the new longships of Viking River Cruises, the innovations onboard Emerald Waterways ships make these vessels an alternative to ocean cruise vacations. Emerald Sky adds more choices of itineraries and sailing dates for the aficionados of European luxury river cruise ship travel – an all-inclusive style.
