About Emerald Liberté

Specially commissioned to sail the Rhône and Saône as part of our Sensations of Southern France river cruise, Emerald Liberté is one of three Star-Ships added to the Emerald Waterways fleet in 2017.
Custom-built to provide the most exhilarating and authentic experiences cruising through France, the Emerald Liberté will skilfully navigate the rivers Rhône & Saône when she enters into service in 2017. The standards of service, attention to food, and knowledge of wine you’d expect in France will be sewn into the very essence of the Emerald Liberté – providing on-board experience comparable with world class boutique hotels.

Completing the Sensations of Southern France itinerary, the ship exudes the same relaxed spirit as the lands which surround the rivers it sails upon. Travelling from Lyon to Avignon, the Emerald Liberté will explore culturally-rich and enigmatic cities before dissecting the wine regions and charming Mediterranean settlements of France.

The Emerald Liberté is just one of three new ships to be added to the Emerald Waterways fleet in 2017, a year promising amazing things for the river cruise world.

Sensations of Lyon & Provence from Lyon

Join us on the Rhône as we drift through provincial wine lands dotted with spirit-lifting heritage towns and ancient cities whose cobblestone streets bristle with culture and epicurean tradition. From Lyon to Arles over eight wonderful days, discover the wine-making customs of Chalon-Sur-Saône, the half-timbered charm of Mâcon, and the Roman-age splendour of Arles, all while cruising in effortless contemporary comfort on-board your Emerald Waterways Star-Ship. This memorable sailing introduces southern France in all its iconic style and splendour, from the revered vineyards of Beaujolais to the jovial bouchons of Lyon, the acclaimed culinary capital of the world. Your tour starts in Lyon, France’s third largest city. Feel the city’s heartbeat during a guided tour, which begins with a drive to the hilltop church of Basilique Notre Dame de Fourviere and concludes amid the byways of the old town, where gastronomy is all. This evening, sail north through Beaujolais to Chalon-Sur-Saône while savouring an on-board cheese and olive tasting, one of several EmeraldPLUS events scheduled for your journey. History and culture come easy in Avignon, a Celtic city that’s renowned as the seat of the Palais des Papes, and in Arles, whose World Heritage-listed centre boasts some of the finest Roman architecture outside of Italy. It’s here where your trip reaches its conclusion, but not before raising a glass of fine French wine to toast the end of an inspiring journey.
