Emerald Cruises has announced a number of new itineraries for the 2023-2024 season, including cruises to the Caribbean and Central America, transatlantic voyages, and new calls in ports across the Mediterranean and Adriatic Seas, according to a press release.
Travelers on the 100-guest Emerald Azzurra and Emerald Sakara will be able to visit fifteen countries in the Caribbean and Central America, as well as eleven distinct itineraries added to Emerald Cruises’ destinations, according to the company.
During the 2023-2024 season, the company will also expand transatlantically, offering three 12-day ocean crossing itineraries from Lisbon to Bridgetown, Barbados; Lisbon to St. John, Antigua; and San Juan, Puerto Rico to Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Spain.
The Emerald Azzura and Emerald Sakara will also make new port calls in the Mediterranean, including Sardinia in Italy, the Balearics in Spain, Casablanca in Morocco, Gibraltar, and the Canary Islands.
“The Caribbean and Central America are an ideal match for our intimate yachts, which can access the small harbors and bays that the big cruise ships can’t get to,” said Maggie Carbonell, VP of Marketing, Emerald Cruises US. “The marina platform on the yachts’ aft will be a huge draw in these ports, where guests can snorkel, kayak, paddleboard or just play in the turquoise waters.”
Both yachts feature 50 staterooms and suites, 88% of which have a private balcony. As an additional incentive to encourage guests to discover its new itineraries, Emerald Cruises is offering 30 percent off the 2023 collection of Caribbean sailing, for bookings made between July 1-14, 2022 with full payment due 72 hours after the booking is confirmed.
