Often compared to private yachts, the 100-guests Emerald Azzurra and her sister, the recently launched Emerald Sakara, have the amenities to back up this comparison. Their open-air infinity pool is surrounded by lounge chairs and day beds ideal for relaxing and enjoying cocktails from the nearby Aqua Pool Café. A wellness deck complete with spa, infrared sauna and gym allow you to keep focus on your health goals while enjoying the delicious meals prepared by the yachts’ chefs. A marina platform, located on the yacht’s stern, boasts water toys galore – kayaks, stand-up paddleboards, snorkel equipment, SEABOBs as well as a giant trampoline are available for guests to enjoy when the platform is deployed.
An exciting programme of warm water yachting departures is now available to be booked for 2024-2026 departures.
Beginning November 2023, Emerald Sakara will cruise the Caribbean until March 2024 and again from November 2024 to April 2025. Island hop your way around the Grenadines & Grenada, the Eastern Caribbean and St. Barts, British Virgin Islands & French West Indies, or venture into Central America on cruises ranging from 8 to 19 days in length. Enjoy some of the most beautiful beaches, majestic mangroves, hidden caves and coral reefs in the world as you explore this sunny haven, making memories you will treasure forever and making new friends along the way. Explore all Emerald Cruises’ Caribbean yachting options here.
Both yachts will spend summer 2024 in the Mediterranean and Adriatic seas. A variety of new itineraries have been added including the eight-day ‘Yachting Gems of the French and Italian Rivieras’ sailing between Nice and Barcelona, and the nine-day ‘Coastal Spain and the Algarve’ sailing between Barcelona and Lisbon. Explore breathtaking coastlines and uncover countries rich in culture and history. Itineraries range from 8 to 20 days in length, without repeating ports.
Discover paradise, as you sail the vast Indian Ocean archipelago, comprising of 115 islands located off the coast of East Africa. Between December 2024 and March 2025, Emerald Azzurra will take guests on a journey of the Seychelles Islands, with a choice of cruises ranging from eight to 13 days. Known for its pristine beaches, lush tropical rainforests, vibrant coral reefs, and dramatic rock formations, the Seychelles offers the opportunity for exploration and relaxation in equal measure.
Each cruise has been carefully designed to give you the freedom to explore at your own pace. The shortest, 8-day Tropical Charms of the Seychelles itinerary, sails round trip from Mahé, the largest of the Seychelles Islands, with beautiful scenery and unique landmarks influenced by a range of cultures. It is famous for its mesmerizing white-sand beaches and laid back vibes. On the tiny island of Praslin, guests visit the Vallée de Mai reserve, a prehistoric palm forest where the colossal coco de mer nut grows wild.
Cousin Island is an important nesting ground for sea turtles and home to Aldabra giant tortoises; while La Digue Island, known for the towering granite boulders and aquamarine waters that flank the beaches, is the perfect island to explore by bicycle. Nature lovers will be in their element, as they explore Belle Vue peak, hike the luscious greenery, and search for the black paradise flycatcher in its natural habitat. And, of course, below the surface of the Indian Ocean, the dazzling waters of La Digue attract marine life ranging from rays to sharks; perfect for anyone looking for an exciting snorkelling adventure. Select the itinerary most suitable to your interests here.
