Emerald Cruises kicks off the Wave season early with the launch of new promotion

With demand for small ship cruises continuing to grow, Emerald Cruises welcomes wave season early with the launch of its new campaign, called ‘Explore the Extraordinary’.

This new promotion, which runs from October 1 to December 16, 2022, offers significant savings for guests booking travel on most of the line’s variety of river cruises and yachts for 2023 and 2024 that spanning three continents.

Customers booking Emerald River’s 2023 Europe or 2023-24 Southeast Asia cruises during the promotion period will be able to choose between receiving a free round-trip airfare or saving up to $2,000 per couple when booking them (with the amount depending on the duration of the cruise they choose).

Those booking voyages of 15 days or more, such as the popular Splendours of Europe itinerary, will also receive an onboard credit of €500 (approximately US$491) per stateroom. In addition, guests who pay in full at the time of booking (or at least 12 months prior to sailing for cruises departing in late 2023 or 2024) are entitled to an additional ten percent discount on the fare price.

Guests booking select luxury yacht cruises for 2023 and 2024 on Emerald’s newest vessel, the innovative Emerald Azzurra or her upcoming sister ship Emerald Sakara, can benefit from a 20% discount when paying in full time of booking (or at least 12 months prior to sailing, in the case of late 2023 and 2024 departures).

When she made her debut in March 2022, the ultra-luxury superyacht Emerald Azzurra became the line’s first ocean-going vessel and began life sailing the warm waters of the Mediterranean, Adriatic and Red Seas. New for the 2023/2024 season, she will move to sail the Caribbean and Central American seas.

The brand’s second luxury superyacht, Emerald Sakara – which will also carry up to 100 guests in an elegant yet relaxed atmosphere – will be launched sometime next year. Some of the line’s guest-favorite yacht cruises include the eight-day Eastern Caribbean itinerary of St. Barth, with port calls in Martinique, Saint Lucia and Guadeloupe and the eight-day Ionian Sea Adventure, sailing between the ancient and historic cities of Athens and Rome.

When it comes to river cruising, Emerald Cruises operates eight branded Star-Ships along the waterways of Europe and one on the Mekong River in Asia. Some of the most popular river cruises include the eight-day Sensations of Lyon and Provence, which takes guests on an idyllic journey through the south of France, and the spectacular 13-day Wonder of Vietnam, Cambodia and Mekong, which sails between Siem Reap and Ho Chi Minh City.
