Emerald Waterways Christens Destiny, Completes Trio of New Ships

Emerald Waterways has taken delivery of three new Star Ships - Destiny, Liberte and Radiance - bringing its total fleet seven. The 186-passenger Emerald Destiny was christened on May 9 in Vienna by Godmother Colleen Christie, a Canadian broadcaster. Destiny is the river cruise line's fifth ship to sail through Europe on the Rhine, Main and Danube rivers. 

Emerald Liberte was custom-built to sail France's Rhone and Saone as part of the new Sensations of Southern France itinerary, from Lyon to Avignon. The Emerald Radiance, sailing round trip from Porto,  sails the Secrets of the Duoro itinerary. 

Since the launch of its first Star-Ships, Sky and Star, which were christened in Amsterdam three years ago by fashion icon Twiggy, the line has seen substantial growth within the river cruise market.
