Emerald Waterways christens newest ship Emerald Radiance

Emerald Waterways christens newest ship Emerald Radiance

Emerald Waterways christened the latest addition to its fleet of river ships, Emerald Radiance, on June 16 in Porto, Portugal, where the ship will sail on the Douro River, the company has announced.

Gill Williams, a UK travel agent with cruise specialist Cruise Village, served as Godmother.

This year, Emerald Waterways has welcomed three innovative new Star-Ships to its fleet, bringing the total number of ships to seven.

Emerald Destiny was christened last month in Vienna and Emerald Liberté is scheduled to be christened in Lyon, France in September.

Emerald Radiance is the river cruise brand’s most intimate ship to date, with a capacity of 112 guests and a crew-to-guest ratio of 1:3.

A new category of stateroom, the Riverview Suites, are located at the rear of the ship on the Horizon Deck and will boast 300 sq. ft. of living space and panoramic floor-to-ceiling windows on two sides.

Emerald Radiance will explore Portugal’s Douro region, known for its steeply sloped valleys dotted with vineyards and quaint, historic villages.
