One of the Emerald Fleet’s Star-Ships, Emerald Sun is a chic, contemporary vessel that offers modern décor, fantastic communal space and excellent levels of service.

For those who enjoy staying fit and active, there are ample opportunities to do so onboard Emerald Sun. With a dedicated Fitness Centre, complete with free weights and cardiovascular machines, you’ll have no problem working up a sweat. If you prefer your exercise a little less strenuous, there’s also a walking track on the top deck (which will enable you to see the sites of Europe as you stroll), a putting green, so you can get sociable as you practice your swing, and a wonderful heated indoor swimming pool with retractable roof, which allows you to feel the sun on your face as you swim. Emerald Dawn also has a fleet of bicycles that are free to hire for offshore excursions, so you can see even more of Europe’s prettiest cities on two wheels.

Dining options

Food lovers will have plenty to choose from on board Emerald Sun. The Reflections Restaurant serves up gastronomical excellence morning, noon and night, while the Terrace encourages guests to dine al fresco as the sights of Europe sail idly by. For something a little different, try out the Sky Barbeque as the stars come out.
