The Yacht Cruising Experience

The Onboard Experience

⚓ Stateroom and Suites

There are a range of luxurious suites and staterooms to choose from, but no matter which cabin grade you select, you can be assured of a comfortable and indulgent getaway. Each suite and stateroom offers an en-suite bathroom, luxury ESPA toiletries, Wi-Fi, a TV and infotainment system, and either a queen or twin-sized bed adorned with exquisite linens.

Located on the Pool Deck, the Owner’s Suites are the largest on board. With a walk-in wardrobe and separate lounge and bedroom areas, you’ll have ample space to relax and unwind. Step out onto your spacious private terrace and bask in the breathtaking views. Yacht Suites, positioned at the aft of the Observation Deck, offer unparalleled coastal views from an expansive private terrace, as well as generous space and a convenient walk-in wardrobe. 

Taking pride of place at the aft of the Panorama Deck, the Terrace Suites offer spacious accommodations. Your private oversized terrace invites you to soak up the sun in style. Enhance your stay with a pillow menu and the option to have up to two items laundered daily. Nestled on the Pool Deck, the Deluxe Balcony Suites feature separate bedroom and lounge areas, along with a private balcony, while the Balcony Suites, spread across the Observation and Panorama Decks, offer a stylish and comfortable retreat with a private-access balcony. 

Situated on the Emerald Deck, the Oceanview Staterooms provide ample space and picturesque views through your ocean-view window. Luxuriate in the comfort of your plush linens and provided amenities, including ESPA toiletries in your en-suite bathroom.

⚓ Dining, Bars and Lounges

On all Emerald Cruises itineraries, you’ll find that dining is an essential part of your luxury yacht experience. Perfecting the blend of delicious meals, a wide selection of complimentary drinks, and stellar service, Emerald Cruises has made sure that every meal is a highlight of your journey.

Your yacht’s onboard restaurants are contemporary, elegant, and welcoming, with each space thoughtfully designed for maximum comfort and enjoyment. The premier dining spot, La Cucina, offers fine à la carte dining, sumptuous breakfasts, and lunches inspired by your destinations. With fresh, locally sourced dinners and a tranquil ambiance, it’s the perfect setting for a memorable meal. Alternatively, you can dine alfresco on the adjoining Terrace, enjoying your food under the sun. For a quick bite under the sun, head to the Aqua Pool Café, where flatbreads with various fillings and delightful gelato await. And if you need a caffeine boost, grab a delicious coffee to go.

For breathtaking views paired with your favourite cocktail, the Sky Bar on the Sky Deck is the place to be. Take in stunning vistas while enjoying a drink from the extensive drinks menu. And if the sun gets too intense, cool off in the nearby Spa Pool. After your evening meal, unwind in style at the Amici Bar & Lounge, the main lounge area. Emerald’s expert mixologists are ready to create the perfect drink for you from a comprehensive menu, offering a range of spirits, wine, beer, cocktails, mocktails, and soft drinks. 

A range of complementary wines, beers, and soft drinks are available with lunch and dinner, and there is a carefully curated drinks package available to be purchased. However, from April 2024, all day drinks will also be included.

⚓ Entertainment

Emerald’s yacht cruises offer a low-key approach to onboard entertainment, ensuring a relaxing and intimate atmosphere. You won’t find splashy production shows, but you will be able to delight in live music, line dancing, lively quizzes, and the odd late night dance party on the Sky Deck. During the day, you will find a number of activities on offer to keep you engaged, from invigorating yoga and pilates sessions, to cocktail making or cooking demonstrations. During sea days, tranquillity reigns supreme with the freedom to bask in the sun, enjoy a good book, and lounge around the pool with new friends. The priority is creating an atmosphere where you can unwind, connect with fellow travellers, and savour every moment of your luxury yacht cruise.

More Information

⚓ Cruising with Children

Children are welcome onboard Emerald’s luxury yachts, but it is worth noting that they are not specifically catered to in terms of onboard amenities and facilities, or onshore excursions. A luxury yacht cruise with Emerald is much more suited to adult guests.

⚓ On Shore Experiences

The EmeraldDISCOVERY shore excursions program ensures that you see the best of each destination with hand-picked experiences included on every cruise. The carefully curated EmeraldPLUS experiences immerse you in the local culture with guided tours, personal interactions with the locals, and unique events, while an EmeraldACTIVE experience (think bike rides and guided hikes) offer a new and authentic perspective on your destination, albeit, at a slightly faster pace.

You can also choose from the DiscoverMORE program of excursions for an extra fee. These experiences are designed to inspire and are personalised to enhance your days on shore, allowing you to delve even further into the local culture with unique, immersive experiences.

⚓ Accessibility

Emerald’s luxury yachts welcome guests of all abilities onboard, however, there may be some movement limitations to keep in mind. While there are elevators that service all seven decks of the yachts, making them all easily accessible, there are no specific wheelchair-accessible cabins onboard. You may also need to consider that some shore excursions may involve coaches with stairs, so you will need to be able to navigate these comfortably should you wish to join the excursion. It is advised that guests with limited mobility travel with a companion for assistance, as the crew onboard is limited and may not be available to assist at all times.


Frequently Asked Questions

What makes yacht cruising unique to larger cruise ships?

The smaller size of Emerald’s luxury yachts means that they can head into smaller, more out-of-the-way ports that larger cruise ships can’t access. So your itineraries are dotted with new and unique ports of calls that you won’t find on mainstream itineraries, meaning you can quite literally sail the route less travelled.

Is there a dress code on board?

Emerald Cruises recommends packing casual and comfortable clothing. Dinner is informal, but on certain evenings – such as the Welcome and Farewell Dinners – you may prefer to dress up a little.

Are drinks packages available on board?

All luxury yacht cruises departing after 17 April 2024 will have a drinks package included with your sailing. Until that time, a selection of drinks packages are available for purchase, with complimentary beer, wine and soft drinks available with lunch and dinner.
