Emerald Waterways offers cruises on the Rhine, Rhône, Saône, Douro, Main, Danube and Moselle rivers, with journeys ranging from eight to 24 days. One of Emerald Waterways’ most popular itineraries, the eight-day Danube Explorer, sails between Budapest, Hungary and Passau, Germany with ports of call in cities including Vienna and Durnstein. Highlights of this sailing include a Viennese concert with music from Mozart and Strauss and several guided hikes and bike tours through some of Germany and Austria’s regions.
For those wanting to explore Provence, the eight-day Sensations of Southern France voyage travels between Lyon and Arles along the picturesque Rhône and Saône Rivers aboard the Emerald Liberté. Guests will visit several country villages that are synonymous with this region and be introduced to its history with tours of the area’s castles, palaces and ruins. The region’s wine and culinary offerings are highlighted through wine, cheese and olive tastings as well as an on-board, Provençal style dinner cooked by acclaimed local chef and Top Chef France finalist, Fabien Morreale.
