Emerald Waterways has arrived

Award-winning deluxe river cruises and exceptional value

Evergreen Cruises & Tours’ award-winning sister company, Emerald Waterways, has now launched in Australia!

Our river cruises in Europe and South East Asia have been operated by Emerald Waterways since 2014. During this period, Emerald Waterways has grown into a successful international river cruise brand with a fleet of nine stylish Star-Ships.

With the promise of exceptional value inclusions, high quality experiences, and a commitment to excellence and innovation, the company has won multiple awards and legions of fans all around the world.

Evergreen and Emerald Waterways proudly share the same values so the only thing that will change is the name. Over the next few months we’ll be transitioning our river cruises from the Evergreen brand to the Emerald Waterways brand, to ensure your experience is seamless from the time you book, to when you board, during your cruise and after you arrive home. 

A new Emerald Waterways website is coming soon but in the meantime please keep using evergreentours.com.au to find your next Emerald Waterways river cruise.

The world is starting to open up again, so when you are ready, we look forward to welcoming you on board an Emerald Waterways Star-Ship for the cruise of a lifetime.
