The four cruises we offer generally operate April through October and we have varying pricing depending on departure date. The weather in Europe is pleasant during that time of the year (although summers can be hot,) perfect for navigating the diverse rivers and seeing the beautiful countryside, historic sites, vineyards, castles and palaces. Emerald Waterways is an award-winning cruise line with new ships that are relatively small, accommodating less than 200 people.
