ABOUT EMERALD RADIANCE:

Brand new for 2017, Emerald Radiance is our new ship sailing the Douro. The ship features a serenity pool on the Sun Deck, so guests can enjoy the Portuguese sun.

The Emerald Radiance will explore Portugal’s Douro region, navigating the eponymous river Douro. Dissecting some of Europe’s most beautiful vineyards and wine-producing villages, the river Douro evocatively stretches through beautiful backdrops on either bank. Fittingly, the bespoke Emerald Radiance has been lovingly designed and built to complement the jaw-dropping scenery unfolding before the ship’s bow.
