Our Star-Ships

The world's newest fleet and most innovative River Cruises

Emerald Waterways Star-Ships

Expect stylish and spacious ships designed to ensure the most comfortable journey. Breathe in the history of the continent's greatest rivers.

When you book an Evergreen river cruise, you will cruise with our sister brand, Emerald Waterways, whose award-winning Star-Ships are luxury floating hotels. Impressive from the moment you step on board, Europe's newest fleet and most deluxe vessels set new standards and offer guests the opportunity to experience the finest vessels in Europe.

With more space per person than most other river cruise ships and exceptional features like floor-to-ceiling windows in the Horizon Bar and all public areas, our ships provide an overwhelming sense of light and space. The public areas are well-designed with our guests in mind. The glorious Sun Deck with its 360° views, lounge chairs, walking track, putting green, giant Tic-Tac-Toe and Sky Barbecue is an inviting place to enjoy the ever-changing scenery.

Take a dip in our 24m² heated swimming pool at the rear of the Horizon Deck. A retractable roof allows you to enjoy it in all conditions. At night, the pool is covered by an extended floor and the area transforms into an entertainment lounge, hosting movie nights and other functions.

The Reflections Restaurant is a relaxed setting to enjoy our superb onboard cuisine, and complimentary wine, beer and soft drinks are served with lunch and dinner. Lunch is freshly prepared, featuring a tempting array of hot and cold dishes, and in the evenings you'll feast on a delicious five-course dinner. The Terrace on the ship's bow is perfect for a quiet breakfast. With panoramic views of the spectacular scenery, the Terrace is also a lovely alternative for a cafe-style lunch.

As you would expect from a deluxe hotel there is also a fitness room, a beauty centre and free Wi-Fi on board. Complimentary bicycles are also available for our more active guests.
