Group travel on the rivers of Europe has enjoyed an upswing in popularity among North American travelers, with families, affinity groups, and friend circles looking to share the experience of a lifetime with people they know and trust. A group with Emerald Waterways can be as small as five cabins—or as large as a full ship charter. Special group rates and group air promotions are available, and booking a group allows for one free sailing for every nine paying guests, representing an excellent value in addition to a novel way to travel with friends and family. With Emerald Waterways’ Group Value Points program, group organizers may also tailor their guests’ experience with a range of amenities, such as onboard credit, drink packages, and additional discounts.
Emerald Waterways is also taking bookings for the 2022 Mekong River cruise season, with sailings through Cambodia and Vietnam take place aboard the line’s newest Star-Ship, Emerald Harmony.
Emerald Cruises is the parent brand of Emerald Waterways and the newly formed Emerald Yacht Cruises. The Emerald Azzurra, the first yacht to launch under the Emerald Yacht Cruises brand, is a 100-guest super yacht that will ply the warm waters of the Mediterranean, Adriatic and Red seas. Emerald Waterways features nine branded Star-Ships offering river sailings in Europe and on the Mekong, as well as the chartered river ship along the Volga River in Russia (MS Nizhny Novgorod). The brand offers contemporary deluxe ships, outstanding service and an incredibly inclusive pricing plan that has won them the honor of being named Best River Cruise Line for Value by the Cruise Critic Editors’ Picks Awards for five years running.
