Emerald Waterways Adds A New Ship & New Itineraries in 2021

Emerald Waterways Adds A New Ship & New Itineraries in 2021

Emerald Waterways is already looking ahead to 2021 when it will not only introduce new itineraries to its European line-up but also a brand new river ship – Emerald Luna.

The new Star-Ship, Emerald Luna, will debut in the Spring of 2021 and will sail itineraries on the Rhine, Main and Danube rivers. Built to the same specifications as the lines other river ships, the Luna will feature Emerald Waterways’ signature indoor pool that converts to a cinema at night, as well as the line’s innovative all-weather indoor balconies with floor-to-ceiling windows.

In addition to the new ship, Emerald Waterways will also add a new itinerary to their 2021 season—a 10-day sailing through Holland and Belgium entitled Springtime Delights. Sailing round trip out of Amsterdam in April, the itinerary will include stops in lesser-explored ports such as Maastricht, Holland’s oldest fortified city, and Haarlem, the heart of the Dutch flower growing industry. And because April is the height of tulip season in Holland, the itinerary will include a visit to the iconic Keukenhof Gardens, which boasts nearly 80 acres abloom with more than seven million multicoloured flower bulbs.

There is also a new, eight-day ‘Legendary Rhine & Moselle’ river cruise that travels from Frankfurt to Bernkastel and includes stops in Wiesbaden, Koblez, Cochem and more. Emerald Waterways' 2021 European river cruise pre-release brochure is available for download now.
