Stunning Design

Emerald Luna

One of six specially designed Emerald Cruises Star-Ships built to navigate the waters of the rivers Moselle, Main, Danube and most importantly the Rhine, travellers will leave the UK and fly to Amsterdam, boarding Emerald Destiny* on May 7, 2022.

Constructed in 2017, the ship is modern, tasteful and designed to enhance the river cruising experience.

Suite on board

Four decks in total including the Sun Deck, a mixture of passenger cabins, staff facilities and accommodation and leisure features, Emerald Destiny can accommodate up to 180 guests for an intimate small ship experience.

Spanning 135 metres, Emerald Destiny has an attentive crew of up to 51 including the all-important Captain.

Great Facilities

Riverview Club Lounge


Alongside various cabin grades to choose from, Emerald Destiny has fantastic facilities to take advantage of during your stay.

Ranging from staterooms to balcony suites, all include an en-suite bathroom, a luxurious queen-sized or twin hotel-style bed, draped in luscious linens as well as a flat-screen HDTV and infotainment system.

On the Horizon Deck, enjoy a Pool and Evening Cinema area.

A relaxing, heated pool during the day and on select evenings, an intimate evening cinema, this is one of the most luxurious areas onboard.

An excellent opportunity to work on your mind, body and spirit, Destiny also has her own Wellness Area.

Unwind, indulge in some spa treatments^, get active or visit onboard salon beauticians, returning home rejuvenated and rested.

Outside, we recommend making your way to the top of the ship, taking in spectacular views of the surrounding countryside from the Sun Deck.

Here, choose to relax on a sun lounger, try your hand at a game of giant Noughts and Crosses or develop your putting technique during free time aboard.
