Review of Emerald Sun
Launched in 2015, MS Emerald Sun cruise ship is the third vessel in the Emerald Waterways fleet, with sisterships Emerald Sky, Emerald Star, Emerald Dawn, Emerald Destiny and Emerald Luna. With similar Star-Ship design are the 2017-launched fleetmates 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.
The ship Emerald Sun 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 cabins are Suites with a balcony (in-room/step-out veranda).
