Emerald Waterways started in 2014 with custom-built ships to exceed guest's expectations. The Star-Ships are Emerald Star, Emerald Sky, Emerald Dawn and Emerald Sun. These Star-Ships navigates the rivers of Rhine, Main, Danube, Moselle and guide through some of Europe’s most magical stretches of water and explore many of the continent’s most arresting and enchanting cities.
