This is the second of their cutting-edge Star Ship vessels, which features a huge number of river cruise innovations that are already getting passengers excited about upcoming voyages.
The Emerald Star features:
- On-board cinema and two dining venues
- Heated pool with retractable roof
- Innovative new balcony suite design
- On-board fitness, therapy and salon areas
- 72 suites and 20 staterooms, accommodating 182 guests
The Emerald Star’s elegant modern design is a sign of the times. With new innovations coming along all the time, and with a greater demand for river cruise holidays in general, the lines are beginning to blur between stylish modern ocean liners and their smaller river-cruise counterparts. Spacious, modern river ships like the Emerald Star are at the forefront of this change.
Emerald Waterways’ Star Ships offer more state-of-the-art features and amenities than any other river cruise line. Along with the Emerald Star and Emerald Sky there are two more ultra-modern Star Ships to come in 2015, the Sun and the Dawn – giving river cruise lovers more choice, and a greater range of exciting travel experiences along Europe’s waterways.
Good food and wine make a luxury river cruise. The Emerald Star offers its guests two dining venues on board – the outdoor Terrace, which makes the perfect place to sit back and watch the countryside roll by with a light breakfast or lunch; and Reflections, the ship’s elegant main dining room, serving delicious main meals prepared freshly by chefs on board.
The Emerald Star’s bright, airy suites and staterooms are characterised by modern fittings and stylish design, reflecting an emphasis on luxury travel experiences. One of the ship’s stand-out innovations can be found in its cabin balconies, in the shape of a revolutionary window design. At the touch of a button your suite’s floor-to-ceiling window lowers down to create a glass-front balcony – while in the ship’s premium suites, you could enjoy all the space of a full outdoor balcony with sliding-door access from your room.
