Emerald Cruises has unveiled their new collection of luxury yacht cruises through to April 2026 aboard their twin, 100-guest Emerald Azzurra and Emerald Sakara yachts, featuring brand-new destinations — the Indian Ocean and the tropical Seychelles. The new collection also feature new ports of call and fresh itineraries in the Mediterranean, Adriatic, Red Sea, and Caribbean seas.
Available to book from 3 October 2023, the 2025-26 programme includes over 146 ports of call across 134 sailings. Highlights of the new 2024-26 programme include:
New for the winter 2024/25 season, Emerald Azzurra will take guests on a journey to the Seychelles, a vast Indian Ocean archipelago. Known for its pristine beaches, lush tropical rainforests, vibrant coral reefs, and dramatic granite rock formations, the Seychelles offers the opportunity for exploration and relaxation in equal measure. The ‘Tropical Charms of the Seychelles’ sailing departs Mahé and calls into eight islands during its eight-day sailing. On the tiny island of Praslin, guests can visit the Vallée de Mai reserve, a prehistoric palm forest where the coco de mer nut grows wild. Cousin Island is an important nesting ground for sea turtles and extremely rare magpie robins; while La Digue Island, known for the towering granite boulders and aquamarine waters that flank the beaches, is the perfect island to explore by bicycle.
Emerald Cruises is offering five new itineraries in the Red Sea, calling on gateway ports in Jordan, Egypt, Israel, and Saudi Arabia, offering access to iconic destinations in the ancient world. Guests can visit Jordan’s hidden city of Petra and the sweeping Valley of the Moon, the Pyramids of Giza and Valley of the Kings in Egypt, and the sacred city of Jerusalem across a variety of 8- to-12-day sailings. Caribbean
Emerald Sakara, launched in August this year, will spend the winter of 2024/25 in the Caribbean. Three distinct, eight-day itineraries call on a total of 22 ports in the Eastern Caribbean, Grenadines, Windward and Leeward Islands. Adventurers looking for a truly epic tropical voyage can combine the three, eight-day itineraries into a 15- or 22-day Hidden Treasures of the Caribbean sailing with no repeat ports.
In addition to the new destinations, from next year (2024) both yachts in the Emerald Crises fleet will spend summer 2024 in the Mediterranean and Adriatic seas. A variety of new itineraries have been added including the new eight-day ‘Yachting Gems of the French and Italian Rivieras’ sailing between Nice and Barcelona, and the new nine-day ‘Coastal Spain and the Algarve sailing between Barcelona and Lisbon.
