Drinks on board

A little of what you fancy - that's what travel is all about. At Emerald Cruises, we believe that a glass or two of your favorite tipple can't hurt, which is why we serve a selection of complimentary drinks during lunch & dinner, including wine, beers and a selection of soft drinks.

Whatever you’re partial to, be it white wine, rosé or a refreshing pilsner beer, we offer a variety of complimentary drinks to suit you. Not only that, but our flexible Drinks Packages give you the option to make the most of our bar menu whenever you fancy during your cruise.

Our extensive drinks menu also consists of premium favorites and rarer labels to tempt when the mood takes you (additional charge). Plus, we also offer a range of complimentary hot beverages, perfect for when you’re in need of a warming pick-me-up during the day.

Rhine and Moselle

The Rhine and Moselle valleys are responsible for much of Germany’s wine, including both white and red varietals. Crisp Riesling and rich Pinot Noir characterize the region’s viticultural offering, with historic vines growing on the steep slopes which rise from the iconic Rhine River.

Wachau Valley and Austria

Wachau Valley, Austria
Austria is one of the oldest wine-growing nations on Earth, and it’s from here that we source a number of our prized vintages. The Wachau Valley, a UNESCO World Heritage Site on the River Danube, is revered for its old-world vines, while the Austrian capital, Vienna, is the only city in Europe which produces wine at scale.
