Emerald Waterways to expand its fleet

The owner of Emerald Waterways has revealed that the company is to dramatically increase the size of its fleet, following on from a successful launch just two years ago.

Speaking at the christening of Emerald Sun and Dawn, Glen Moroney said that the company was in negotiations for three new ships, which would not sail on rivers the company currently has a presence on.

Including the ships which were christened on Friday, and one which is due for delivery next year, the company has five ships, which operate on the Rhine, Danube and Main.

It also charters one vessel in France from A-Rosa and one for the Mekong River from Haimark.

It has been reported that the company will take the three ships onto the Seine, Douro and Rhone.

Speaking to Cruise Adviser, Moroney said: “I’m very happy with how successfully the launch of Emerald has gone. It’s proved hugely popular.

“Guests come on board feeling good and they leave feeling even better,” he added.

Julie Kendrick, the godmother of Emerald Sun, was picked as part of a competition for UK travel agents.

Kendrick works as head of commercial and marketing for Midcounties Co-operative Travel.

Kendrick said: “The Emerald Sun, with her innovation and style, will bring immense enjoyment and everlasting memories for everyone who sails in her. As Godmother I’m an ambassador for her and a brand which I believe is leading the way in putting stylish and iconic vessels into the river cruise market.”
