New Emerald Cruises yacht cruising destinations added for 2023 and 2024

We’ve just announced our brand-new yacht cruising itineraries for 2023 and 2024. As well as travelling to new Mediterranean and Middle Eastern destinations, Emerald Cruises will voyage across the Atlantic and sail throughout the Caribbean and Central America – a first for the brand!

Our new itineraries will see our first ground-breaking luxury yacht, Emerald Azzurra, continuing to explore the Mediterranean and Middle East. She will also be joined in the Adriatic by her brand-new sister yacht, Emerald Sakara, before both yachts sail over to the Caribbean Sea for the winter. 

Extend Your Stay

We’ve also introduced a host of new Epic Voyages – our extra-special journeys which combine two or more of our spectacular itineraries to create the trip of a lifetime! Sail for longer and discover even more of whichever region you decide to visit.

Extend Your Stay

With this new season of sailings, Emerald Cruises continues to offer a number of pre- and post-cruise city stays on various itineraries, so our guests have to chance for further exploration. From the quaint city of Nice to the ancient history of Athens and the bright lights of Dubai – there’s an Extend Your Stay for everyone!

New regions to explore

The Red Sea and Middle East combine old-world glory with modern metropolises. Emerald Azzurra will journey throughout the Arabian Peninsula, visiting astounding cities such as Doha, Dubai, and Abu Dhabi. Guests will have the chance to visit marvels along the Red Sea, stopping at historic sites such as Petra and discovering the Holy Land – keen sailors will have the chance to enjoy a fascinating transit through Egypt’s Suez Canal.

The Mediterranean Sea encompasses a large expanse just waiting to be explored, touching on the coastlines of Europe, Africa, and Asia. A favourite with ocean goers, Emerald Cruises will once again sail to various Mediterranean ports of call, this time adding even more itineraries to be discovered in this sun-soaked region. Emerald Azzurra will return to the Med in 2023 and 2024, sailing along the Adriatic and Aegean Coasts, as well as venturing to the French and Italian Rivieras. Emerald Sakara will also make her debut in the Adriatic Sea in the summer of 2023.

Both of our fabulous yachts will sail across the Atlantic, taking our guests on a grand ocean voyage – a first for Emerald Cruises. Sailors will follow the path of many explorers before them on this bucket-list worthy journey, enjoying their time at sea in the sumptuous surrounds of contemporary luxury. Guests will take advantage of all that Emerald Azzurra and Emerald Sakara have to offer: soaking in the sun in the infinity-style Aqua Pool or relaxing Spa Pool; enjoying delicious à la carte cuisine in La Cucina Dining or light bites at the Aqua Pool Café; or rejuvenating in the Wellness Centre with luxurious spa treatments and a moment of relaxation in a state-of-the-art infrared sauna.

A whole new world awaits Emerald Cruises guests in the Caribbean and Central America. The French West Indies and US & British Virgin Islands are a slice of paradise, boasting glorious beaches and azure waters. And there’s no better place for our captains to drop anchor and launch the Marina Platform on select days, where guests will be able to partake in water sports, enjoy water toys, or even just relax on the open waters. In Central America, we’ll discover rich cultures, tropical landscapes, and colonial pasts – and we’ll transit through the Panama Canal, experiencing this wonder of engineering as we go.
Emerald Cruises has a wealth of luxury yacht cruising itineraries to discover across 2023, and 2024 on board Emerald Azzurra and Emerald Sakara. Read on to discover our brand-new 2023 and 2024 yacht cruising itineraries.
