Emerald Destiny

Emerald Destiny is one of five of our Emerald Waterways Star-Ships specially designed to traverse the Rhine, Main, Danube and Moselle rivers in style. With tasteful and modern décor visible throughout the ship, including in the form of our three-tiered atrium that allows natural light to pour in and illuminate the interior.

At the back of the Horizon Deck, you can find our daytime pool and evening cinema. This is a feature on all of the Star-Ships that sail along the Rhine, Maine, Danube and Moselle. With a retractable roof, floor-to-ceiling windows and picture perfect views; this is the ideal spot for a gentle swim. On selected evenings, the pool seamlessly transforms into a cinema, where you can watch a number of blockbusters and classic films.

Our Reflections Restaurant on the Vista Deck is the centre point of our dining experience on board, where sizeable windows offer excellent views of the surrounding landscapes and you can enjoy regional and seasonal flavours. For a more intimate experience, you can head to the contemporary Horizon Bar & Lounge, where authentic entertainment will be available on selected evenings.

Boasting more than ninety suites and staterooms, the Emerald Destiny has a lot to offer when it comes to comfort, with features that would be aligned with those of a world-class hotel. You can spend your time on this vessel relaxing as picturesque views pass by, watching them from your private balcony as we sail past.

Accommodation

Our suites and staterooms are chic, modern sanctuaries, something you would expect from that of a world-class hotel. Inspired by innovation and contemporary design, we have five suite and stateroom grades. In all suites, the traditional French balcony has been substituted for our ingenious all-weather system, transforming your balcony into the perfect place for you to enjoy the endless river views, regardless of the weather. Our staterooms offer a picture window, perfect for admiring the views.

All suites and staterooms boast a wealth of sumptuous features, from luxurious toiletries and a revitalising shower in your spacious en-suite bathroom, to a queen size* or twin hotel-style bed, draped with luxurious linens. Not forgetting, a flat screen HDTV and infotainment system, free Wi-Fi to keep you connected with loved ones, and a bottle of water, replenished daily. We also provide trekking poles to assist on guided walking tours and hikes.

Dining

Expect truly memorable on board dining experiences, from start to finish. Every Emerald Waterways river cruise begins with a festive Welcome Buffet Dinner where you'll meet the intimate group of cruise guests, and ends with a sumptuous Captain’s Farewell Dinner where you share mutually treasured moments in camaraderie with new-found friends.

We believe that great service plays an important role in the dining experience, which is why all of our team members have been carefully selected for their experience and expertise. And with one of the very best guest to crew ratios on Europe’s and Asia's rivers, you can expect customer care at its finest. No matter where or how you choose to dine on-board our ships, you’ll find our friendly, professional team are always ready to help you.

Free drinks with meals

What’s better than free meals? Free drinks perhaps? During mealtimes on-board Emerald Sun and Emerald Dawn, you’ll be able to enjoy complimentary drinks, including a selection of beers, wines and soft drinks. Alternatively, buy a drinks package to take advantage of our bar menu whenever you fancy throughout the day.

Entertainment

As the host on-board, our Cruise Directors strive to ensure there’s never a dull moment during an Emerald Waterways river cruise. With this in mind, a fantastic range of entertaining activities are available for you to enjoy.

Thanks to the unique design of our Star-Ships, we are able to host a unique event program throughout your cruise. In the Horizon Bar & Lounge, immerse yourself in ancient folklores, passed from one generation to another for hundreds of years, during an authentic show. Or, let the music of a nation sweep you off your feet as a local band takes to the floor in their traditional attire. Alternatively, catch that film you never got round to seeing during movie nights in the cinema.
