A new ocean-going superyacht will give vacationers the opportunity to travel like a Hollywood A-listener or global business tycoon when she sets sail later this year.
Emerald Cruises’ new luxury ship, Emerald Azzurra, will set sail from Aqaba, Jordan, on her maiden voyage in March. The eight-day “Best of the Red Sea” route is followed by another trip in the region before heading to the Mediterranean and Adriatic coasts.
The purpose-built ship includes just 50 deluxe suites and cabins, carrying a maximum of 100 guests per trip to ports and harbors only accessible to small yachts, and offers a new and exclusive luxury sailing adventure.
The superyacht’s marina platform is designed for easy access to water sports activities like snorkeling, paddle boarding, swimming, and three dinghies on board.
On board, the various public areas offer the perfect retreat to relax, including an infinity pool on the upper deck. The Emerald Azzurra’s wellness center offers a spa, gym and sauna for ultimate indulgence.
The eight-day travel route “The Best of the Red Sea” runs back and forth from Aqaba, Jordan, to ports in Egypt and Israel. Prices for the eight-day inaugural Emerald Azzurra cruise on March 11th will start at £ 3,625 per person.
The eight-day “Highlights of Southern Italy” route in late summer explores Italy’s breathtaking south coast from Rome to Monopoli before crossing the Adriatic Sea to disembark in Dubrovnik. Prices start at £ 3,545 per person for departures on August 13th.
