Emerald Cruises has launched its new Epic Voyages collection, made up of longer, curated journeys ranging from 15 to 26 days.
Available on both Emerald Cruises’ European river cruises as well as luxury ocean yacht sailings on board the soon-to-launch Emerald Azzurra. All Epic Voyages combine two or three complementary itineraries—complete with transfers between ships when necessary—to create a single seamless adventure that calls on multiple countries. Instead of worrying about the logistics of hotel rooms, rental cars and crossing international borders, guests booking these extended cruise itineraries are free to focus on what’s really important—relaxing, discovering iconic cities and villages, and making memories with loved ones.
On the rivers of Europe, Emerald Cruises has crafted a selection of Epic Voyages connecting routes such as the 15-day Discover the Rhine and Rhone Rivers itinerary, which spans four countries. Guests booking the Oct. 8, 2022 sailing will spend a day in Amsterdam before departing to sail the Rhine through the Netherlands, Germany and Switzerland. In Basel, Switzerland, guests will be transferred to Lyon, France via coach where they will embark on Emerald Liberte for an 8-day sailing on the Rhone. A bonus for wine enthusiasts: both rivers traverse major wine regions and offer multiple opportunities to visit local vineyards and learn what makes each wine region unique. Other popular Epic Voyages on the rivers include the 16-day Discover the Treasure of the Danube between Bucharest and Nuremberg, and the 15-day Discover the Rivers of France and Portugal sailing between Nice and Porto.
For those looking to unplug on a Mediterranean journey, the 26-day Discover Gems of the Mediterranean Coastlines also visits four countries, providing a deep dive into the beauty and culture of both the Western and Eastern Mediterranean. Departing from Nice on April 25, 2023, this sailing takes guests onboard the 100-guest superyacht, Emerald Azzurra, from the French Riviera, down the Western coast of Italy with ports in Corsica and Sicily before heading to the Greek Isles and Turkey and concluding in Athens. Guests will have a hard time choosing a favorite port on a route that calls on the likes of Rome, Portofino, Amalfi, Athens, Mykonos and Istanbul, to name a few. Those interested in immersing themselves in history should check out the 18-dayDiscover the Wonders of the Red Sea between Aqaba and Limassol, with ports of call in Egypt, Jordan, Israel, Cyprus and a transit through the famed Suez Canal.
For your clients booking select suite or stateroom categories on 2022 cruises will receive up to 30 percent off the cost of the booking when paying in full 12 months prior to departure.
