Scenic brings Emerald Waterways brand to Australia

Scenic Group has announced that its award-winning Emerald Waterways river cruise brand is launching in Australia from early July.


Marketed in Australia by Evereen Cruises and Tours since its establishment in 2014, the Emerald Waterways brand and product was created to offer high quality, four star and exceptional value river cruising in Europe, complimenting the luxury segment that is driven by the Scenic Luxury Cruises sister brand globally.

"The growth and success of the Emerald Waterways brand has been outstanding," Anthony Laver, Group General Manager, Sales and Marketing, Scenic Group said.


"Starting with two deluxe, custom-built river cruise ships in Europe, Emerald Waterways has since grown into a highly successful international brand, with a fleet of nine Star-Ships across Europe and South East Asia."


"In 2021, we will launch Emerald Azzurra, a new super yacht sailing the Adriatic, Mediterranean and Red Sea, with the Emerald Yacht Cruises brand."


Both the Evergreen and Emerald Waterways brands proudly share the same values. The river cruise experience and value pricing will stay the same, only the brand name will change.


"Like Evergreen, Emerald Waterways has always promised exceptional value river cruising. With a winning blend of inclusions, excellence and innovation, Emerald Waterways has won multiple awards and legions of fans around the world," said Angus Crichton, Director Sales, Marketing & Product.


"Having successfully launched in New Zealand two years ago, it makes sense to introduce Emerald Waterways as a standalone brand in Australia."


Emerald Waterways will offer the same exceptional value inclusions:

·         All meals included while cruising

·         Complimentary wine and beer with lunch and dinner

·         Daily shore excursions

·         Special cultural inclusions with the EmeraldPLUS program

·         EmeraldACTIVE experiences like yoga, cycling, hiking and canoeing on cruises in Europe

·         Wi-fi, tipping and gratuities, airport transfers, port charges and taxes

·         The services of a Cruise Director, and so much more


A new website is launching soon, however in the meantime, visit to learn more and find the perfect river cruise itinerary on the Douro, Rhône, Rhine, Danube and Mekong. Take a virtual tour of the spacious suites, explore the pool, or discover the stunning dining spaces.


Evergreen Tours will continue to offer the exceptional value land-based touring for which it is renowned, with 2021 tours including its ever-popular program to Canada and Alaska, and the exciting South America region.
