As we see the cruise sector making waves this year, Emerald Waterways announced the release of its 2019 collection, showcasing new itineraries and packages along the majestic Danube.
Emerald Waterways was founded in 2013, with a goal of catering to a new demographic of river cruise travellers.
On announcing the new main edition brochure, David Winterton, global brand curator for Emerald Waterways, commented: “In just a few years, Emerald Waterways has gone from Europe’s newest river cruise line to a market leader, winning awards for onboard innovation and exceptional value for money.”
“Guests have already been eager to book their 2019 river cruise with us, since the launch of our Preview Brochure earlier in the year. And we hope that this enthusiasm will continue with the launch of our 2019 Main Edition European River Cruises Brochure, which includes two new eight-day Danube River itineraries: Classic Danube and Lower Danube Waltz, alongside four new combination river cruises,” added Winterton.
The Classic Danube cruise will sail from Nuremberg to Vienna, while the Lower Danube Waltz will sail from Vienna to Belgrade. In addition to these new itineraries, Emerald Waterways has also introduced a new collection of combination cruises. The four new combination cruises include: 23-day Amsterdam to Bucharest, 16-day Treasures of the Danube, 15-day Three Rivers Discovery and 15-day Rhine & Rhône.
On this cruise, passengers with get a fascinating insight into German military history on coach tours passing the Nazi rally grounds. The tour will pass through thought-provoking places such as the Justice Palace and the WWII Documentation Centre. Highlights also include views of the Oberhaus Fortress and Vienna’s famous Ringstrasse, a 3.3-mile stretch of monumental buildings and historic sights.

The cruise also offers a tour of Ringstrasse by coach or as part of a guided city tour. In addition, passengers will be able to explore Budapest and enjoy a hike on Buda Hill. There’s also a tour on the border of Hungary and Croatia filled with architectural landmarks to explore. Other highlights include lunches with Croatian locals in Osijek and visits to Novi Sad and Belgrade.
Winterton added: “Our fleet of seven revolutionary Star-Ships is one of the youngest on Europe’s waterways with three innovative new Star-Ships launched last year, offering our guests modern luxury at an affordable price.”
