Emerald Waterways announced the release of its 2018 European River Cruises Brochure, which showcases a collection of itineraries that sail through Central Europe, France and Portugal.
On announcing the 2018 brochure, David Winterton, Global Brand Curator for Emerald Waterways, commented: “In just few years, Emerald Waterways has gone from Europe’s newest river cruise line to a market leader, winning awards for on-board innovation and exceptional value for money.
“Our fleet of revolutionary Star-Ships is now one of the youngest on Europe’s waterways, with three innovative new Star-Ships launched this year, offering our guest modern luxury at an affordable price. Plus, we’re excited to continue our journey in 2018 with the addition of three new eight-day itineraries, sailing in Europe.”
Emerald Waterways’ popular Danube, Main and Moselle river cruises will be accompanied by the launch of two new itineraries on the Rhine and a new sailing through Holland and Belgium, all of which feature in the new brochure.
The 8-day Charms of Holland and Belgium: Vibrant capital cities, UNESCO World Heritage-listed windmills, battle grounds and magnificent architecture. Get to know Holland and Belgium’s past and present during coffees on Antwerp’s cobblestone streets and canal cruises through cosmopolitan Amsterdam. Peruse museums and historically relevant landmarks, and end your trip walking the streets of Edam, famed for its delicious cheese. There’s tradition and culture in abundance on this inspirational itinerary.
8-day The Classic Rhine: Starting in the Dutch capital, enjoy guided bike tours and museum visits, before sailing the beauty of the Rhine towards Germany, scooping up Xanten’s Roman Archaeological Park, Andernach’s Geysir Museum and Site, as well as the Medieval beauty of Cochem’s Reichsburg Castle.
Walking tours, wine tasting and ancient history transform this classic river cruise into a diverse and exciting adventure you’ll never forget.
8-day The Majestic Rhine: Your journey through Germany includes a visit to Rüdesheim to see Seigfried’s Mechanical Musical Instrument Museum. While ancient Koblenz and Mannheim’s beautifully diverse architecture will be sure to amaze, as will your following exploration of the picturesque spa town of Baden-Baden in the southwest of the Black Forest. Take a coach to the Alsace capital Strasbourg and cross the border into France on a visit to Colmar, before heading home from Basel.
