Entertainment Onboard

Emerald Waterways know that the journey is as important as the destinations when it comes to your cruise so the line ensures there is never a dull moment onboard.


Evening Cinema: head to the back of the ship and you’ll find that the heated pool has been transferred into a whole hub of entertainment. The floor rises through the pool’s surface and the screen is lowered from above for a night of your favourite flicks.


After-Dinner Entertainment: head to the Horizon bar and lounge to hear a phenomenal pianist, watch traditional performances (Hungarian dancing or a Bavarian band), take part in challenging quizzes or watch their famed crew show.emerald

Dining Options

Every Emerald Waterways ship will give you a different dining experience from a breakfast that sets you up for a busy day to a five-course a la carte meal.

 All meals are included in the price of your cruise as well as complimentary wine, beer and soft drinks with lunch and dinner.

The Terrace – The Terrace provides a lovely retreat from which to enjoy a light snack or a refreshing drink. This peaceful setting is also a great spot to enjoy a glass of local wine or beer with your loved ones or new-found companions. 

Reflections Restaurant – Open seating is perfect for relaxed dining and socialising with fellow guests, as you savour a wonderful variety of Asian-inspired dishes. A wonderful way to conclude a day of exploration, or prepare for one of your many included excursions.

Lotus Lounge – Dark wooden tones and muted colours relax you as you sail towards your next destination. Located at the front of the Vista Deck, nibbles and snacks will be available here throughout the day, as well as teas and coffees. 


Emerald has made gratuities a stress-free subject for you by including them in the price of your cruise so once you’ve booked your cruise, there’s nothing left to pay.
