Book Emerald, Fly Free

Travellers have until the end of the month to take advantage of Emerald Waterways’ free air offer on select 2016 sailings.

All guests booking a Balcony Suite, including the Panorama Balcony Suite, the Grand Balcony Suite and the Owner’s One Bedroom Suite on 2016 Europe river cruise itineraries departing through Aug. 31 will get free round-trip airfare from major Canadian and US gateways.

Guests booking a stateroom cabin category on a Europe itinerary will be eligible for a reduced airfare rate of $995 per person. Additionally, guests booking any cabin category on all 2016 Southeast Asian itineraries – which include sailings on the Irrawaddy and Mekong Rivers – will also receive free airfare from major gateway cities.

This offer is good on bookings made through Feb. 29.

Emerald offers river cruises on the Rhine, Main, Danube, Moselle, Rhone, Mekong and Irrawaddy Rivers, with journeys ranging from eight to 24 days.

Some of Emerald’s most popular itineraries include the eight-day Danube Delights between Nuremberg and Budapest, the 15-day Splendours of Europe between Amsterdam and Budapest, and the 10-day Enchantment of Eastern Europe between Budapest and Bucharest. The Southeast Asia itineraries – the 16-day Highlights of Vietnam, Cambodia and Mekong River cruise and the 16-day Mystical Myanmar & Irrawaddy cruise – have proven to be popular and space is limited.

Emerald Waterways’ Star-Ships carry 182 guests in 72 suites and 20 staterooms, including two built for solo occupancy. Unique features include an onboard heated swimming pool with a retractable glass roof, which transforms into a cinema in the evening; two restaurants: Reflections, the main dining room, and The Terrace for light breakfast and lunch; and a new type of cabin design that replaces the French balcony, common to most ships, with an indoor balcony complete with decked area and an open-air system.

A near all-inclusive pricing plan features all transfers to and from the ship; all onboard (and some on-shore) meals; unlimited tea and coffee; wine, beer and soft drinks with lunch and dinner; bottled water in the cabins replenished daily; continental breakfast, pre-dinner canapés and after-dinner sweet treats served in the top suites; complimentary WiFi onboard the ship, a shore excursion daily; and more – as well as all gratuities on and off the ship and port charges.
