In response to current travel trends indicating increased demand for small ship cruising in 2022 and 2023, Emerald Cruises is launching wave season early with a new campaign themed Discover the World. This campaign, which runs through Dec. 15, 2021, offers travel across three continents in addition to savings on an array of 2022 and 2023 small ship river and yacht cruises. The program comes on the heels of Emerald Cruises’ announcement that it will launch a second yacht, Emerald Sakara, scheduled to sail in just over a year after sister-yacht Emerald Azzurra’s 2022 maiden voyage.

Guests booking select 2022 or 2023 European and Southeast Asia river cruises during the wave campaign can save up to $2,400 per couple on their booking depending on length of sailing. Guests who book a suite on the Horizon Deck (Europe) and Horizon or Pool Deck (Asia) will receive an additional bonus savings of 5 percent. And guests booking any of the above and paying in full by Dec. 15, 2021 will receive the Super Earlybird discount of an extra 10 percent off.

Popular itineraries for the line include the 8-day Legendary Rhine and Moselle through Germany’s towns and villages, and the 13-day Wonder of Vietnam, Cambodia and the Mekong between Siem Reap and Ho Chi Minh City.

Guests who wish to book select 2022 and 2023 yacht cruises in the Mediterranean, Red and Aegean Seas can receive up to 35 percent off the cost of their booking when paying in full by Dec. 15, 2021, plus a free Premium Drinks Package, which includes all beer, wine, cocktails and soft drinks. New for 2022, is the 8-day Greek and Turkish Coastline sailing round trip from Athens, which takes guests on a journey through the Aegean Sea.

All bookings come with the line’s flexible booking policy allowing guests to defer travel plans and transfer to an alternate departure date or itinerary up to 60 days prior to departure with no Emerald Cruises fees. Those looking for additional security can purchase the new Platinum Protection Plan, which provides coverage for guests who may fall ill or whose travel plans are affected by Covid-19.
