Emerald Waterways has chartered a yacht that will run a programme of cruises off the Dalmatian coast in Croatia.
The move marks the companies first foray into ocean cruising after its ultra-luxury sister brand, Scenic, announced that it was due to launch Scenic Eclipse, a luxury mega-yacht that will begin sailing this year.
The 18-cabin Adriatic Princess II will offer eight-day Islands of Dalmatia cruise between Trogir and Dubrovnik, Croatia. The programme runs between April and October 2019.
The ship is capable of handling 36 guests.
Emerald Waterways currently offers cruises on the Rhine, Danube, Seine, Douro as well as rivers in Russia and southeast Asia.
