Emerald Cruises’ new ship, Emerald Azzura, has completed her sea trials.

The ship left Ha Long Shipyard, Vietnam, on 20 November at 6am and completed the testing within 48 hours before returning. She will now undergo further work to complete her interiors and exterior, while onboard teams will complete their training.

“During Emerald Azzurra’s sea trials, all design parameters were exceeded, including speed, noise, vibration and overall comfort and maneuverability whilst sailing,” said Glen Moroney, founder and chairman of Scenic Group. “Emerald Azzurra really is a very special superyacht, and will undoubtedly deliver a fantastic experience for our guests.” 

Emerald Azzurra’s maiden voyage will depart on 28 January 2022 and travel across the Red Sea. The ship features 50 deluxe suites and staterooms and can carry 100 guests.

Emerald Cruises now has 10 vessels in its fleet, with nine river-cruising Star-Ships. The 10th Star-Ship, Emerald Luna, is currently under construction and will join the fleet in spring 2022. A second superyacht, Emerald Sakara, is expected in early 2023.
