Emerald Waterways will expand beyond river cruising with the launch of a 100-guest yacht that will sail the Adriatic, Mediterranean and Red seas.

The Emerald Azzurra, scheduled to enter service in July 2021, will be the first ship under the Emerald Yacht Cruises brand, which is also part of the newly formed Emerald Cruises portfolio. 

“Emerald Waterways has been operating award-winning river cruises in Europe since 2014,” said Glen Moroney, owner and chairman of the Scenic Group. “The launch of Emerald Yacht Cruises and the stunning new Emerald Azzurra are a logical extension of the Emerald Cruises portfolio, adding intimate yacht cruising in the Mediterranean to the existing Emerald Waterways river cruise offerings.” 

The 360-foot long Emerald Azzurra will offer what the company describes as an “intimate, boutique yachting experience.”

The yacht will call on multiple ports in Greece, Italy, Croatia, Montenegro, France, Turkey, Cyprus, Malta, Spain, Israel, Jordan and Egypt, including smaller ports off the tourist track that are accessible only by yacht.
