A Look at the New Emerald Azzurra

So far, the company has only confirmed one yacht, but given the growth in Emerald Waterways' river cruise fleet, from two ships in 2014 to nine now, future growth is likely.

Itineraries for 2021-2022 will include the Adriatic, Mediterranean, and Red Seas which are available for booking now.

Part of the Scenic Group, Emerald Waterways now operates nine Star-Ships in 19 countries and charters two small ships sailing the Adriatic coast.

The Scenic Group has announced a new 100-guest super yacht in the Emerald Azzurra on Saturday, with delivery set for 2021.

"At just 110 metres in length, we are excited to be offering an intimate experience on board, with just 50 cabins, and on shore due to the fact we will have access to small ports and harbours that large ships can't access". We chartered a river ship on the Mekong River, before building Emerald Harmony and we have done the same by chartering small ships in Croatia past year before committing to building Emerald Azzurra. Unlike other ships in this class, 88% of the cabins feature balconies from which to admire the breath-taking views.

The ship's July 31 inaugural sailing is an eight-day "Cyprus, Turkey and Greece Delights" in the Aegean Sea, from Limassol, Cyprus, to Athens, Greece, and calling on Paphos, Cyprus; Fethiye, Bodrum and Kusadasi, Turkey; Mykonos and Santorini, Greece. In the true style of a superyacht, the ship features a marina platform from which guests can take part in a variety of activities including paddle boarding and snorkeling. An eight-day French and Italian Rivieras with Corsica itinerary, departing August 14, 2021, starts from £2,965pp.

Its 12-day Ancient World Wondersitinerary from Limassol calls at Haifa for Tel Aviv, in Israel, and Ashdod for Jerusalem, with three stops in Egypt, finishing at Aqaba in Jordan from £5,245 per person.

In keeping with the brands' inclusive pricing structure, the Emerald Azzurra fares will include á la carte dinners; breakfast and lunch buffets; complimentary wine, beer or soft drinks with lunch and dinner; all on-board gratuities; transfers to and from the airport; port charges and all taxes. Onshore, guests will enjoy included EmeraldPLUS cultural experiences, a range of included EmeraldACTIVE excursions, and can book DiscoverMORE optional excursions to tailor their cruise.
