Emerald Cruises Opens Early Access For 2025 Europe Bookings

Emerald Cruises has opened its booking window for early access to the entire 2025 Europe river cruise season following a strong early booking trend for 2024.

Pricing and details are now available for sailings on the Rhine, Main, Danube, Moselle, Rhône and Douro rivers, including the springtime “tulip cruises” and a variety of Christmas Market cruises. As always, a wide array of EmeraldACTIVE tours like guided hikes, bike rides and canoe trips are offered at no extra cost for travelers looking to pick up the pace while taking in the sights.

Guests booking their 2025 Europe river cruise by Feb. 15, 2024, will receive a Bonus Launch Savings of $500 per couple, plus their choice of offer:

  • The Super Earlybird offer includes 2025 cruise at the 2024 price, roundtrip air fare on 8 days and longer itineraries, and up to $1,400 CAD savings per person on select sailings, with full payment required 10 months prior to departure
  • The Earlybird offer includes 2025 cruise at the 2024 price and up to $1,600 CAD savings per person on all sailings

As well, Emerald Cruises has increased the number of departures for some its most popular itineraries. Jewels of the Rhine — an eight-day sailing between Amsterdam and Basel on one of Europe’s more storied rivers — will add 15 departures in 2025, with a longer sailing season stretching into early November. And the 15-day Splendours of Europe between Amsterdam and Budapest will add three departures.

It is also the ideal time to book group travel for 2025. Groups can be comprised by as few as 10 guests or five suites, and group bookings are eligible for excusive discounts and benefits.

Group bookings made by Feb. 15, 2024, will receive the same Bonus Launch Savings of $250 per person and choice of Super Earlybird or Earlybird offer. Plus, groups booking all April, July, August & October 2025 (excluding Douro) departures receive extra $750 CAD Group Savings per person, while all other departures will receive an additional $350 CAD Group Savings per person (excluding Douro).
