Sky DeckEmerald Cruises has unveiled stunning first images of the brand new luxury superyacht, Emerald Azzurra, following its launch last month. The 100-guest yacht is the first of the brand’s two ground-breaking superyachts to join the award-winning Emerald Cruises fleet.

Featuring designer furnishings throughout, the pool deck boasts Paola Lenti day loungers and Kettal lounge chairs, to complement the infinity-style pool offering incredible sweeping views over the warm-weather destinations visited. Indoors, the stylishly appointed Observation Lounge includes a Dedon MBrace Wing Chair and footstool, as well as L’Object games such as chess and tic tac toe for guests to enjoy.

Of the 50 deluxe staterooms and suites, over 80 per cent feature private balconies and each one is equipped with Missoni towels and ESPA amenities – the same luxury line found in the onboard Elements Spa.

Setting sail for the first time from Aqaba in Jordan last month, Emerald Azzurra offers a luxurious small ship cruising experience to ports and harbours only accessible to smaller yachts. The custom-built vessel features a variety of public areas including a Wellness Centre, which comes complete with Technogym equipment and an infrared sauna – the first for a yacht of its size. The yacht’s marina platform provides guests with easy access to watersports and activities, including the onboard SEABOBs and the very latest in electric bikes from Gocycle.

Emerald Azzurra is currently sailing an 8-day Mediterranean Enchantment itinerary which finishes in Dubrovnik on 16 April 2022. Prices for the eight-day Mediterranean Enchantment departing later in the season, on 10 September 2022, start from $5,495 per person. The itinerary visits Kotor, Sarandë (Albania), Kerkira (Corfu), Párga, Cephalonia and Itea (Delphi) before transiting the Corinth Canal to Athens.

The new yacht will be joined by sister yacht Emerald Sakara in February 2023, with itineraries to Seychelles, the Black Sea and the Middle East, on sale now.
