The upcoming season will feature a newly launched Star-Ship, Emerald Luna, new land extensions to Istanbul and Transylvania, and several fresh itineraries on some of Europe’s most popular rivers.

All 2021 river cruise bookings also now include Emerald Waterways’ Deposit Protection Plan at no extra charge (value of $125 per person) as well as a reduced deposit payment, so guests can book their vacations with confidence.

Christmas Market sailings have become increasingly popular as an ideal way to visit the festive traditional holiday markets of Europe. New for 2021, Emerald Waterways is offering three 5-day itineraries to see and shop the iconic markets on the Rhine (sailing between Basel and Frankfurt), the Danube (sailing between Vienna and Budapest) and for the first time on France’s Rhone river between Avignon and Arles.

During the Canada Day launch period, all guests can choose either a $600 savings per couple or €400 on-board credit per couple. All European river cruises of 15 days or longer will receive free, round trip airfare to Europe and for Canada Day a complimentary extended drinks package. Guests booking a sailing of eight to 14 days will receive round trip air for $295. The Canada Day sale booking deadline is July 15, 2020. Plus, for added flexibility and peace of mind, Emerald Waterways is also offering free Deposit Protection Plan (Value $125) to protect the value of the deposit and reduced deposit of $250 per person.

Emerald Waterways remains committed to ensuring the health and safety of their guests and crew.
