Emerald Liberte, sailing from Lyon to Avignon

Emerald Waterways’ newest ship coming spring 2021

VANCOUVER — Emerald Waterways is adding a new Star-Ship to its fleet: Emerald Luna.

Set to debut in spring 2021, Emerald Luna will become the line’s sixth Star-Ship to sail the Rhine, Main and Danube rivers, and will bring the total Emerald Waterways river fleet to nine.

Built to the same specifications as the line’s other RMD ships, Luna will offer Emerald Waterways’ signature indoor pool that converts to a cinema at night, as well as all-weather indoor balconies with floor-to-ceiling windows.

“We are thrilled to welcome Luna to the Emerald Waterways family,” said Patricia Wu, Brand Director for Emerald Waterways Canada. “Canadian interest in sailing the Rhine, Main and Danube rivers has been growing, and we look forward to offering our unique brand of exceptional Emerald Waterways’ value to an even larger audience.”

In addition to the new ship, Emerald Waterways will also add a new itinerary to their 2021 season – a 10-day sailing through Holland and Belgium, called Springtime Delights. Sailing roundtrip out of Amsterdam in April, the itinerary will include stops in lesser-explored ports such as Maastricht, Holland’s oldest fortified city, and Haarlem, the heart of the Dutch flower growing industry. And since April is the height of tulip season in Holland, the itinerary will include a visit to Keukenhof Gardens.

Clients booking any 2021 European sailing Jan. 20 – May 14, 2020 will receive free or reduced roundtrip air depending on the length of the sailing they choose.

Clients interested in sailings 15 days or longer will receive free, roundtrip air to Europe, while guests looking to book shorter sailings between eight and 14 days will receive roundtrip air for $295.

Emerald Waterways will be hosting a series of free travel showcase information sessions in cities across Canada during February and March.
