“It is an honour for us to have such an accomplished industry leader as Joanie Ogg as godmother of the Emerald Starand it is only fitting that she welcomes in the next generation of river ships,” said Glen Moroney, pictured with Ms Ogg.

As star of the US travel industry Joanie Ogg has been voted “Travel Agent of the Year” by her peers, is the recipient of two “Lifetime Achievement Awards” from Travel Trade Magazine, and has been named as one of the “Most Powerful Women in Travel” by Travel Agent Magazine, three years running. She was also recently inducted into the CLIA “Hall of Fame”.

Evergreen Tours is currently constructing a further two deluxe Emerald ‘Star Ships’ – Emerald Sun and Emerald Dawn – which will launch in 2015, taking the fleet to four river cruisers.

The Emerald ‘Star Ships’ each welcome 182 guests in 72 suites and 20 staterooms, including two specifically built for solo occupancy. Unique items include an on board heated swimming pool with a retractable roof which transforms into a movie theatre in the evening; two restaurants – Reflections, the main dining room, and The Terrace, which serves breakfast and lunch; and a special suite design featuring an innovative indoor balcony. With the push of a button, the upper half of the floor-to-ceiling panoramic window drops down to form a glass balcony. In addition, there’s an on board hairdresser, massage therapy room and fitness area.
