When cruising EMERALD with VACAYA, you're choosing casual elegance, fun, & discovery...

A river cruise is one of the most elegant and worry-free ways to travel. And with only 182 guests on the ship, not only is your VACAYA Luxe river cruise a great value, but it offers a truly intimate cruising experience, as well. Onboard, you’ll enjoy a continuous view of the incredible landscapes along the famous waterways, and you’ll also see a different side of Europe – one that can only be experienced on the rivers that have helped shape the history and cultures of the places they weave through.

This cruise offers luxury at a great price. We’ve layered in quite a few inclusions that will hopefully make it irresistible to global adventurers.
