Labelled by Emerald Waterways as their “star-ship”, the
Emerald Dawn is one of four technical marvels promoting a sleek and comfortable
design that is entirely Emerald’s own. With wide space, wonderful décor,
innovative features and warm staff, the Emerald Dawn is set to impress any who
step on board, whether its tasteful dining in the Reflections Restaurant or
going for a swim in the heated pool in the afternoons to then enjoy a film as
it switches to the cinema in the evenings.
The Reflections Restaurant is a beautifully clean but
surprisingly informal place for all on board to enjoy a wonderful buffet
breakfast in the morning or partake in the Egg Chef’s selection of morning
meals. In the evenings you can expect to melt away into a four-course dinner,
all while revelling in extraordinary panoramic views of the landscape.
Al fresco dining is available at The Terrace at the bow of
the ship. The experience of riding headfirst along each river and into each
town, being the first to get wonderful views, all while dining on some of the
ship’s finest meals is without a doubt phenomenal and a must for anyone on the
In the evenings, after a long day, you can pop into the
Horizon Bar and Lounge for a glass of Emerald’s finest wines, warm teas and
coffees and delicious soft drinks. The Lounge is also equipped with a piano, so
expect soothing music to be playing on quiet evenings.
On the ship is a small and personal Fitness Room and Massage
Room. Unlike some other cruise lines, Emerald also offers a Hairdresser for
those who want a change of hairstyle.
Each of Emerald Waterway’s ships are equipped with a fabulously small and relaxing heated swimming pool, which comes with a surprise. In the evenings this pool turns into a cinema where you can watch classic films and the latest releases.
Apart from the heated pool, there is a golf putting green
and giant chess set on the Sun deck, along with many events, occasions and
activities that take place on board.
