The evenings may be getting slightly lighter but it’s decidedly chilly and spring feels a long way off right now, so I think we could all do with something fabulous to look forward to. Which is why I’m welcoming the news of Emerald Waterways‘ January sale.

Guests can save a guaranteed £1,000 per couple on every 2015 river cruise when booked by 30 January and new dates and availability have been added to their most popular sailings. Since over 80% of spaces on-board 2015 cruises were already sold out, this will be good news for avid river cruises looking to try out the acclaimed (and newest) river cruise line.

A particularly popular itinerary is their eight-day Danube Delights cruise, a cruise through ‘Old Europe’ exploring ancient Abbeys, classic landmarks and mesmerising landscapes including vibrant cities such as Vienna and Budapest.


But what has really caught my eye is the chance to sail on one of Emerald’s famous ‘Star-Ships’, the innovative vessels that have been turning heads in river ship design. They really do set a new standard with their ample amenities and state-of-the-art features.

If you don’t believe me, take a look for yourself on their 360° virtual ship tour, or watch one of their eight brand new videos.
