With immense credit to the wide river of the Yangtze, the Viking Emerald is a gargantuan far cry from the European ships. With a total of 4 decks and capacity of 256 passengers, the Emerald is described as one of the most sophisticated river ships in the world. 

Each deck features its own lobby spanning the entire height of the ship, and the top deck (not including the Sun Deck) has half of its space dedicated to an immense Observation Lounge.

Cuisine and Dining on Viking Emerald

The Viking Emerald features only three areas that travellers can go to for their dining. First is the Restaurant. The casual elegance of the Restaurant is a defining point of Viking’s river cruises, providing outstanding views of the scenery with its panoramic windows and specially prepared regional specialties on fine china.

Head to the comfortable and spacious Observation Lounge where guests can enjoy the majestic beauty of the Yangtze river, chat with fellow guests, and even relax into a fine drink.

A new feature available to the Emerald is the appropriately named Emerald Bar on the Sun Deck, the finest bar on the ship and a sure-fire spot to spend your evening. For the more casual travellers, there is also a Coffee Station on the Observation Deck for you to enjoy.

Entertainment on Viking Emerald

The Viking ships are designed more for the culturally invested and traditional travellers. As such, there are a number of demonstrations, cooking classes and dance performances on board. 

Viking offers talks and lectures regarding the history of places you visit, from the Dutch Masters or French impressionists to the life and works of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. 

Included in these talks are tastes of the local wines and cuisines as well as lessons in key words and phrases of different languages. All of which are enhanced by the exemplary excursions on land.

Spa & Fitness on Viking Emerald

A first for a ship in the Viking River fleet, the Emerald boasts a Beauty Salon, Massage Parlour and Sauna with highly trained professionals ready to give you a rejuvenating experience. Opposite to this, is the Gym for the athletic guests on board.

Recreation on Viking Emerald

In the times where you are just looking to sit back and relax, there is a Library in a prime spot on the Sun Deck, unlike any other ship, as well as an Internet room just below on the Observation Deck.

What our customers say

"I booked my first ever cruise on Tuesday 5th September 2017. After lengthy searching and much deliberation we booked through Iglu. So far, I am incredibly happy I booked with Iglu. This being our first cruise Debi proved very helpful. I was [also] very impressed with the level of assistance offered by Connie. She answered my questions and put my mind at rest. I am very impressed with all aspects of dealing with Iglu and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your support. "

"Leighanne has been excellent dealing with my various queries this year. She has been kind and informative and obtained what i think is a good deal for me in October. She is persistent and very informative, so even when my 1st deal fell through I felt confident enough to approach her for this present Crystal cruise...”
