Evergreen’s River Ships Named “Best Value for Money” by Cruise Critic for the Third Consecutive Year

December 14, 2017 Accolades No Comments Email Email

Evergreen Cruises & Tours’ sister company Emerald Waterways has been named “Best Value for Money” in the river cruise category for the third consecutive year by industry leader Cruise Critic in their annual 2017 Editors’ Picks Awards.

The Cruise Critic Editors’ Picks Awards are chosen by the publication’s international team of editors, based on the lines and ships they feel best represent excellence in each category. Emerald Waterways has received an award from Cruise Critic every year since the line launched in 2014.

The three-time win in the value category is reflective of the contemporary ship design, the high level of service which often draw comparisons to upscale boutique hotels, as well as the inclusions:

  • Daily guided tours and shore excursions
  • All meals with complimentary wine, beer and soft drinks with lunch and dinner; bottled water in cabins is replenished daily
  • All gratuities, tipping, airport transfers, hotel and ship porterage, port charges and taxes
  • Innovations like the pool which converts into a cinema in the evening
  • Complimentary bikes on board most Star-Ships
  • Unique “You’re Invited” cultural events and the “EmeraldACTIVE” program including guided hikes, guided bike tours and more

“Our goal is to offer guests a river cruise experience that is both indulgent and affordable,” said Glen Moroney, founder and managing director of the Scenic Group, the parent company for Evergreen Cruises & Tours and Emerald Waterways. “We’re thrilled that our efforts to raise the standards on European river ships has been recognised by an important industry leader like Cruise Critic.”

Emerald Waterways fleet of seven Star-Ships cruise the Rhine, Main and Danube Rivers, as well as Portugal’s Douro River and the Rhone and Saone Rivers in southern France. The river cruise itineraries in Europe range from eight to 15 days and are exclusively marketed in Australia by Evergreen Cruises & Tours.
