ABOVE:  Emerald Sky (shown) and its sister ship, Emerald Star, are the first two vessels in the Emerald Waterways fleet. INSET BELOW: A suite balcony, and the swimming pool with bar and gelato station.

photoEmerald Waterways is a new river-cruise line from Scenic that caters to both experienced cruisers and what the company describes as a "younger demographic." The line's two luxury vessels, Emerald Sky and Emerald Star, incorporate unique design features that should appeal to passengers who have cruised on oceangoing ships:

  • A swimming pool with a retractable roof that transforms into a movie theatre after dark.

  • Suites with "indoor balconies" that can be turned into recessed outdoor balconies at the touch of a button.

photoOther features include indoor and alfresco restaurants, a bar-lounge with floor-to-ceiling windows, a bar and gelato station by the pool, and a "Sky Bar" that occasionally pops up (weather permitting) on the large sun deck.

In 2015, Emerald Waterways is offering nine cruise itineraries on the Danube, Rhine, and Moselle, ranging from eight to 15 days in length.

Fares include airport transfers, complimentary drinks at lunch and dinner, WiFi, shore excursions, and all tips.
