Emerald Radiance

    New for 2017, Emerald Radiance will be navigating the beautiful Douro, giving guests the chance to enjoy the famous Portuguese climate and the beautiful vineyard-strewn panoramas. The Emerald Radiance is our most intimate ship to date, with a capacity of just 112 guests. Paired with the crew-to-guest ratio of 1:3, this low capacity accommodates incredible levels of service, with personal butlers happy to cater for your every whim. However, the small scale of the Emerald Radiance does not mean it is missing the key amenities and features to make your holiday atop the Douro any less comfortable or enjoyable. Intelligent deck planning has allowed us to add all the favorite features of Emerald Waterways’ fleet to the Emerald Radiance, and there are even beautiful extra flourishes throughout. From the generously-proportioned suites and staterooms to the contemporary, chic Horizon Bar and Lounge, no aspect of the ship has been compromised by its moderate size.

    Amongst the brand new additions featured aboard the Emerald Radiance are the Riverview Suites. Located at the rear of the ship on the Horizon Deck, and boasting floor-to-ceiling windows encasing our innovative balcony; the two Riverview Suites offer amazing, unspoiled panoramic vistas of the river as it flows on by.

    Enjoy your fantastic voyage on the 112-passenger Emerald Radiance through the beautiful Douro Valley in Northern Portugal. A land almost lost in time, delight in the traditional warmth of the Portuguese people, their food, music and dance. Visit extensive wine cellars in the area of Vila Nova de Gaia, and traditional villages like Pinhão and Regua. Savor their world-famous port, the vintage result of secret fortified winemaking methods handed down through the generations.

Activities on Emerald Radiance

Purpose built for Portugal’s warm climate, the comprehensive Sun Deck aboard the Emerald Radiance provides ample opportunity to sample the sun and gentle river breezes. The open-air aspect of the Emerald Radiance includes The Terrace, the perfect place to enjoy a bite to eat and a drink or two with new friends. Or if you fancy a plunge, the Serenity Pool on the Sun Deck is the perfect place for a few lengths before breakfast, under the beautiful Iberian sky.
