Emerald Cruises’ newest river ship, Emerald Luna, joined the line’s fleet on 08APR when it set sail from Amsterdam on an eight-day Holland and Belgium in Bloom river cruise. The launch comes as Emerald Cruises celebrates its eighth year of operations and the restart of its 2022 Europe river cruise season.

The 180-guest Emerald Luna is a brand-new river ship with new features and a contemporary design. From its three-tier atrium to the heated swimming pool that transforms into a cinema, Emerald Luna has been designed to blend space and comfort. Also designed to dock directly in the heart of cities, towns and villages that line rivers of central Europe, the river ship boasts balconies for suites and staterooms complete with decked area and an open-air system.

“Emerald Luna marks a new, exciting addition to our growing fleet – following closely from last month’s launch of our first-ever ocean-going superyacht, Emerald Azzurra” said David Winterton, global director of brand & marketing at Emerald Cruises. “While bookings remain strong for this spring and summer and with Europe continuing to be a popular destination for both new-to-cruise and loyal guests, the launch of Emerald Luna allows more opportunity for our trusted agent partners to sell experiences on Europe’s rivers in our signature Emerald Cruises style.”

Emerald Luna will be officially welcomed to the fleet when it is christened in Amsterdam on 21JUL by godmother Vanessa McGovern, U.S. co-founder of Gifted Travel Network. Emerald Luna will join sister Star-Ships Emerald Sun, Emerald Sky, Emerald Star, Emerald Dawn and Emerald Destiny sailing the Rhine, Main, Moselle and Danube rivers in Europe.

Emerald Cruises’ river fleet also includes the 132-guest Emerald Liberté sailing the Rhône and Saône Rivers in France, 112-guest Emerald Radiance sailing the Douro River in Portugal, and 84-guest Emerald Harmony sailing the Mekong River in Vietnam and Cambodia.
