MS Swiss Emerald defines the word luxury. Launched exclusively for Tauck's European river cruises in 2006, MS Swiss Emerald's three passenger decks are custom-designed to comfortably accommodate 118 Tauck guests in gracious style. She features 14 luxurious 300-square-foot suites that sport floor-to-ceiling windows, brocade upholstery, walk-in closets and marble baths with full-size tubs. Her 59 well-appointed, outside-facing cabins and junior suites range from 150 to 183 square feet.
Guests will enjoy exceptional vantage points throughout the ship, where panoramic windows provide spectacular views of the passing shoreline. Culinary pleasures are many, from a spacious restaurant that offers menus designed for a variety of tastes to special events and evenings that celebrate regional traditions. In addition to a roomy topside sun deck, steam room, spa and 24-hour Jacuzzi, the ship invites relaxation in the lounge, the library or in its teak-lined Lido Bar on the Aft deck. Featuring a 180º glass wall that fully opens for inside-outside cocktails at the end of each day, the Lido Bar also offers coffee & tea, cappuccino, soft drinks and snacks throughout the day.
