With itineraries ranging in length from eight to fifteen days, our river cruises along the Rhine, Main, Danube, Douro and Rhône offer an insight into the history of each magnificent waterway. What were once integral trade routes are now gateways to cultural enlightenment, to be navigated in style on-board an award-winning Emerald Cruises Star-Ship.
The Rhine is a reminder of the historical region’s diverse and eventful past, while the Main explores the states of Bavaria and is the primary transportation route for Frankfurt’s industrial region.
As Europe’s second-longest river, the Danube stretches through 10 countries, flowing through breath-taking landscapes that boast architectural masterpieces and cultural landmarks.
The Douro snakes its way from Spain, through Portugal, its banks lined with quaint villages and world-famous vineyards, while the Rhône, France’s second-longest river, has served as an important trade route through centuries of change and revolution.
