Emerald Waterways has announced plans to add a new Star-Ship to its fleet for the 2021 season, which is now open for booking. Dubbed the Emerald Luna, the new ship will be the sixth for Emerald Waterways on the Rhine, Main and Danube rivers when the vessel makes its debut that spring. 

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

In addition to the new ship, Emerald Waterways will also add a new itinerary to its 2021 season—a 10-day sailing through Holland and Belgium entitled Springtime Delights. Sailing round trip 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 because April is the height of tulip season in Holland the itinerary will include a visit to the iconic Keukenhof Gardens, which has nearly 80 acres blooming with more than seven million multicolored flower bulbs. Emerald Waterways' 2021 European river cruise pre-release brochure is available for download now.

Guests booking any 2021 European sailing between January 21 and April 30, 2020, will receive up to free round trip air and drinks package depending on the length and cabin category they choose. Those interested in a sailing of 15 days or longer above will receive free, round trip air and a complimentary premium drinks package for booking in a Category C cabin and above, or $295 round trip air and complimentary drinks package for Category D, E, and F cabins. Guests looking to book shorter sailings between 8 and 14 days will receive free round trip air for booking Category C cabins and above, and $295 round trip air for Category D, E and F cabins.
