Review of Emerald Star

Launched in 2014, MS Emerald Star cruise ship is the first vessel in the Emerald Waterways fleet, with sisterships Emerald Sky, Emerald Sun, Emerald Dawn, Emerald Destiny and Emerald Luna. With similar Star-Ship design are the 2017-launched fleetmates Emerald Radiance (Portugal) and Emerald Liberte (France).

MS Emerald Star 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.

Cabins

MS Emerald Star has a total of 92 staterooms in 8 categories for 182 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).

Shipboard facilities

MS Emerald Star 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). One lift (passenger elevator) connects all cabin decks.

Emerald Waterways ship pool-cinema
