Emerald Cruises

Uncover celebrated waterways with the small ship experts and explore the world’s stunning seas and coastlines in contemporary luxury.


Striking the perfect balance of time on board and onshore, comfort and innovation are at the heart of the Emerald Cruises experience, and our collection of itineraries will showcase the soul of each destination we visit. Enjoy exclusive excursions, experiences, delicious dining options and more knowing everything is taken care of.

Since our humble beginnings in 2013, we have gained an award-winning reputation within the world of river cruising for excellence in service, innovations in travel and outstanding value. We offer culturally robust excursions, luxurious accommodations and a wealth of sailings that span the globe.

In February 2020, the success of our chartered yacht cruises led to the development of our nascent fleet of superyachts; the newly deployed Emerald Azzurra and her soon-to-launch sister vessel, The Emerald Sakara. Both represent a sea change in yacht cruising and the quintessential superyacht experience for your clients.

One of the core principles of our philosophy is our commitment to providing exceptional EmeraldVALUE. This means your clients can book with confidence knowing all flights, transfers and gratuities are included and they can expect a program of fascinating excursions, delicious dining and complimentary drinks with lunch and dinner.

EmeraldACTIVE & EmeraldPLUS
EmeraldACTIVE helps your clients find their center so they can keep active on board or onshore. Specialized Activity Managers help them script the perfect schedule of invigorating and immersive activities no matter their activity level. With EmeraldPLUS, they will discover rare sights and hidden gems everywhere we sail with the help of local experts offering moments of discovery that they will treasure forever. Both are included.


Explore the Christmas markets of Europe with our specially tailored itineraries and epic journeys that combine up to three of our award-winning cruises. Or indulge in a themed cruise for wine lovers, wellness enthusiasts, art connoisseurs, photography lovers and foodies. Wherever your clients’ wanderlust wants to go, we’ll take them there.


Boasting a sleek, ultra-modern design with some of the most luxurious amenities found anywhere on the world’s oceans, Emerald Azzurra embodies the meaning of the word “superyacht.” Due to its size, she is capable of nestling in harbors inaccessible to commercial cruise ships and her small guest size makes everyone on board feel like they have the vessel all to themselves. Consider your cruising expectations exceeded.
