Set for refurbishment in March 2017, the MS Emerald is a river ship operating on France's Rhone and Saone rivers. Alongside the MS Sapphire, the France river ships are the smallest of Tauck's fleet, at 361 feet long and carrying just 98 guests. 

The refurbishment will make the MS Emerald meet the standards of space that Tauck's ships are known for, with 20 category 6 cabins now on the Ruby deck in particular.

The MS Emerald features the excellent Compass Rose and Arthur's restaurants, a fitness centre and massage parlour, and a sun deck with a putting green and a jacuzzi, which replaces the plunge pool on other ships.

Cuisine and Dining on MS Emerald

A buffet-style breakfast greets guests in the morning in the ship's elegant Compass Rose restaurant, with a selection that's bound to leave guests spoilt for choice. Meet your fellow guests and possibly arrange time to explore ashore together in the day ahead. 

Accept an invitation to a private ranch in Camargue for a Provencal meal and wine, or let the expertly prepared lunch onboard entice you. Guests are given appropriate towels and drinks to warm up or cool down after stepping back onboard.

In the evening, choose from a la carte dinner with complimentary beverages or an incredible dinner in a local castle and chateau, provided exclusively by Tauck.

The ship offers a lighter breakfast and alternative lunch and dinner at the intimate Arthur's restaurant, named after Arthur Tauck. Guests can also enjoy al fresco dining on the sun deck, American breakfast room service in Category 7 suites and complimentary snacks served between 10:00 AM and midnight.

Entertainment on MS Emerald

Tauck's endeavours for enriching experiences means that Tauck guests will be able to enjoy excellent entertainment from experts and local artisans providing their insight or performing their craft, such as informative lectures and tantalising culinary demos and tastings. You can also enjoy soothing evening piano music and in-room movies if you want to take the time to relax or enjoy time on your own.

Spa & Fitness on MS Emerald

For the comfort and pleasure of their guests, the ship is fitted with a generous Fitness centre and massage parlour on the Emerald Deck, while the sun deck features a putting green and a jacuzzi.
