(TRAVPR.COM) UNITED KINGDOM - July 8th, 2014 - Emerald Waterways may be the ‘new kid on the dock’, but they are already making a splash with the media as popular UK newspaper the Telegraph has heaped praise on the river cruise line in recent articles.

Ever since Emerald Waterways appeared at the top of the list in ‘The best river cruises for 2014’ article by Pat Richardson earlier this year, praise for their innovative Star-Ships and cutting-edge features has been non-stop. In Richardson’s article he quite rightly described river cruises as ‘a more immersive experience’ than that of ocean cruises as Emerald Waterways’ detailed itineraries take you through countries rather than to them. Emerald Waterways was the river cruise line of choice when it came to ‘scenic splendour’, with the 12-day cruise along the Rhine and Moselle rivers coming highly recommended.

In more recent news, Emerald Waterways has been praised by the paper for their free WiFi and iPad use for Owner’s One-bedroom Suite guests, their exceptional Emerald value in another and for their reduced-price river cruises on the Danube by travel writer Sophie Butler just last week. In this most recent article, which can be read here, Emerald Waterways was named as one of the best river cruise lines offering great deals at the moment, with savings of £500 per person available on 2015 river cruises booked before 29th August.
