Our heated pool and cinema

Introducing our most innovative feature

Where else can you enjoy an indoor heated pool with retractable roof?

Make your way to the back of our Star-Ships and you'll discover our most innovative feature, the likes of which you won't find anywhere else on Europe's rivers. In our constant dedication to bring the highlights of ocean cruising to the intimacy of Europe's waterways, we've developed a custom-built feature that promises to give your time on board an edge.
Our indoor heated pool is located on the Horizon Deck of most of our vessels*. This sanctuary of calm features a retractable roof which will welcome the cool river breeze during those warmer days on the water. Floor-to-ceiling windows surrounding the entire area bring the outside in and promise endless views while you enjoy a revitalising swim. 
Whether you choose to soak in the sights from the crystal-clear pool during your morning dip or lie back pool-side to marvel at the awe-inspiring night skies, it’s hard to imagine a more tranquil setting to relax and unwind.
If you would prefer to stay dry, you will find that the contemporary decked area surrounding the pool is the perfect place to unwind with a good read. There's a scattering of comfy lounger chairs and tables, topped off with a tranquil ambience.
Specialty teas and coffees are available free of charge from the intimate cafe at any time of the day. Feel free to help yourself to a creamy cappuccino and take some time to yourself as your Star-Ship navigates the water at a leisurely pace. Whether you’re looking to relax after a morning of sightseeing or being your day with a refreshing dip before stepping foot ashore, this oasis of serenity will soon become one of your most cherished areas of our ships.
At Emerald Waterways, we strive to exceed your expectations. That’s why we go above and beyond to provide guests with memorable experiences, both on-board and onshore. From the luxurious comfort of our heated indoor pool, to the sleek, modern design of our suites and public areas, it’s no surprise that our commitment to excellence has been recognised with countless industry awards over the years. 
*Please note: On the Emerald Radiance, the indoor pool is replaced with a Serenity Pool on the Sun Deck

Watch our heated pool transform into a cinema

Our most innovative feature

Unlike any other on Europe's waters, our ships boast a heated pool* complete with retractable roof and bar which cleverly transforms into a cinema in the evening. *please note the Emerald Radiance does not have an indoor pool/cinema.
