The 180-guest ship will dock directly in the centre of cities, towns and villages

Emerald Luna, the ninth Star-Ship to join Emerald Cruises’ fleet, has completed an inaugural eight-day Holland and Belgium river cruise. 

The 180-guest ship will dock directly in the centre of cities, towns and villages along the rivers of central Europe. She features a three-tier atrium and a heated swimming pool that can transform into a cinema, along with suites and staterooms featuring Emerald Cruises’ panorama window balcony design. 

“Emerald Luna marks a new, exciting addition to our growing fleet,” said David Winterton, global director of brand and marketing at Emerald Cruises. “While bookings remain strong for this spring and summer and with Europe continuing to be a popular destination for both new-to-cruise and loyal guests, the launch of Emerald Luna allows more opportunity for our trusted agent partners to sell experiences on Europe’s rivers in our signature Emerald Cruises style.”  

Emerald Luna will be officially welcomed to the cruise line’s fleet at a christening ceremony in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, on 21 July by godmother and travel industry advocate Vanessa McGovern of Gifted Travel Network. She will then join sister Star-Ships Emerald Sun, Emerald Sky, Emerald Star, Emerald Dawn and Emerald Destiny sailing the Rhine, Main, Moselle and Danube rivers in Europe.
