Launched in 2006, refurbished in 2013, and then again in 2017, ms Emerald features a redesigned deck plan that accentuates updated accommodations to provide you with a cozy and comfortable cruising experience. ms Emerald now carries just 98 guests on each voyage, whereas ships of similar size will typically carry 160. This grants you more room to enjoy your vacation and a more personalized experience with the ship’s staff and passengers. Grab a glass of wine with that couple you just met in one of the inviting onboard lounges or sample cider and calvados together in Chateau Gaillard. One of the best features of Tauck river cruises is their small size, so you can have the best river cruising experience possible.
ms Emerald boasts some of the finest staterooms offered on European rivers, ranging in size from 150 to 300-sq. feet. As a result of its most recent refurbishment, ms Emerald now features 14 all-new Tauck Suites and 20 225-sq. foot cabins. 85% of all staterooms feature floor-to-ceiling windows with a French balcony, allowing for unimpaired views of the riverside. All rooms are equipped with in-house movies, a minibar with water and soft drinks, adjustable temperature controls, a hair dryer and a private bathroom and shower with Essentials Line of Molton Brown bath amenities. Rest comfortably after a long day of adventuring on your delicate pillowtop mattress, covered by 400-thead-count satin linens, your head resting on rounded pillows formed from fine mako cotton and your body snuggled up beneath a soft, cotton hypoallergenic comforter with 90% down filling. These are just a few of the comforts you will find yourself surrounded in once aboard ms Emerald, where keeping you refreshed and relaxed for your traveling pleasure is the key focus of Tauck's service.
Sailing up and down France's Rhône and Saône rivers year-round, ms Emerald visits many of the beautiful towns settled along the French countryside. Voyages on this river cruise ship include French Waterways, French Escapade, A Taste of France and Bon Voyage! Some of the towns that are visited by these river cruise journeys include Paris, Monte Carlo, Vienne, Arles, Nice, and Lyon. You will get to experience all the romance that is the French culture when cruising on ms Emerald.
Dining onboard ms Emerald is the equivalent of bringing the French countryside to your plate every night. The chefs work tirelessly throughout the day, gathering the freshest and best ingredients, to deliver exciting dishes throughout your entire cruise. ms Emerald features two main dining venues: its main restaurant, The Compass Rose, featuring open-seating and expertly prepared international cuisine and Arthur’s, which offers light breakfasts and casual fare for lunch and dinner. You may also have the opportunity to dine al fresco on the sun deck as long as the weather permits. Don’t forget about the exciting offboard dining options that are included in your fare – if you’re feeling adventurous, venture away from the onboard venues and see what the locale has to offer. It’s not every day that you have the opportunity to experience a homemade meal in a private manade, complete with authentic storytelling and a bull-herding demonstration.
