Your Holiday Home Away From Home

Emerald Waterways revolutionary “Star-Ships” aren’t like any other riverships. They’re designed to impress and inspire with every little detail, exceeding any expectation you have of what a rivership should be like.

At VACAYA, we don’t want to just meet your expectations; we aim to create spectacular surprises that exceed what you’d expect from a rivership. That’s why we’ve chosen to partner with Emerald Waterways, whose deluxe ships boast a heated swimming pool complete with retractable roof – creating a brilliant onboard oasis for you to relax, whatever the weather. And on selected evenings, the pool area inventively transforms into a cinema showing a collection of films.


With its striking minimalistic design, sleek composition, and stylish features, Emerald Sun is comparable to a contemporary designed hotel. Only it’s better, because your hotel travels with you to a multitude of fantastic destinations, and offers incredible panoramic views of the stunning scenery you pass along the way.

The spacious, airy and contemporary reception area hosts a spectacular 3-tiered atrium which opens up the center of the ship, allowing natural light to pour through and illuminate the interior.

Throughout the public areas, elegant furnishings, modern art, and mirrored walls create a refreshing and luxurious environment for you to enjoy, while floor-to-ceiling windows allow you to fully appreciate your time on the river.

Raise a toast with a cocktail and some new-found friends, and watch the endless vistas roll by.
