Emerald Cruises Celebrates New Superyacht Emerald Azzurra’s Float Out

The brand new ocean-going superyacht Emerald Azzurra from Emerald Cruises floated out on 5th December 2020 at The Halong Shipbuilding Company in Vietnam, marking just over a year until guests will be able to set sail on the brand new superyacht. 

Emerald Azzurra is the first custom-built ocean superyacht launched by Emerald Cruises, and will set sail on 28 January 2022 on the 8-day Best of the Red Sea itinerary. The cruise starts from $10,839 per person. Guests can also take advantage of the Super Earlybird savings (departing 28 January 2022).
Once complete, Emerald Azzurra guests will enjoy a modern luxury small ship cruising experience, with the superyacht carrying just 100 guests in 50 deluxe suites and staterooms. 88 per cent of cabins include a balcony and the yacht features an on board Wellness Centre (including spa, gym & sauna), three tenders and a Zodiac for shore landings. Emerald Azzurra also features a Marina Platform to allow easy access to snorkelling, paddleboarding or swimming at one of the many swim stops.

As well as having access to small ports and harbours that large ships can’t access, guests will have the opportunity to taste local flavors and cocktails whilst taking in the views from one of the three different bars and restaurants.

Glen Moroney, Founder and Chairman of The Scenic Group (including Emerald Cruises) comments:
"We are incredibly excited to see Emerald Azzurra successfully enter the water as the next stage of her build, the completion of the interior, commences. Once again Emerald Cruises is looking to the future and building a game changing vessel at a time when small-ship experiences are gaining in popularity. We can’t wait for past river cruise guests and new customers alike to join us on board our very own ocean-going yacht in 2022.”
