Emerald Cruises has opened its booking window for the entire 2025 Europe river cruise season. Pricing and details are now available for sailings on the Rhine, Main, Danube, Moselle, Rhône and Douro rivers, including the springtime “tulip cruises” and a variety of Christmas Market cruises. As always, a wide array of EmeraldACTIVE tours like guided hikes, bike rides and canoe trips are available at no extra cost on each departure for travelers looking to pick up the pace while taking in the sights.
To help ensure guests can book the sailing of their dreams, Emerald Cruises has increased the number of departures for some their most popular itineraries. Jewels of the Rhine—an eight-day sailing between Amsterdam and Basel on one of Europe’s more storied rivers—will add 15 departures in 2025, with a longer sailing season stretching into early November. And the 15-day Splendours of Europe between Amsterdam and Budapest will add three departures—good news for travelers looking to spend their time abroad.
Now is an ideal time to book group travel for 2025—whether to celebrate a special birthday or anniversary, host a family reunion or get a group of friends together for the trip of a lifetime. Groups can be comprised of as few as 10 guests or five suites, and group bookings are eligible for exclusive discounts and benefits. For 2025 sailings, group guests will receive an extra $350 savings per person.
All 2025 Europe river cruises include two-for-one fares, as well as free, roundtrip air when paying in full at least 12 months prior to departure. All Emerald Cruises’ river cruise fares encompass a wealth of generous inclusions: airport transfers; daily guided tours including active options; all meals onboard; complimentary beer, wine and soft drinks with lunch and dinner; all gratuities; port charges; and WiFi.
