Amenities

Beautifully designed common areas and open-air venues aboard Emerald Sun are a big draw of the cruise ship.
 
The Sun Deck is the heart of the vessel’s leisure spots, with a retractable glass roof providing seasonal cover for the lounge and alfresco area below. On this deck, guests can take a refreshing plunge in the indoor heated Swimming Pool surrounded by plush chairs and glass walls. The pool area transforms into a cozy Cinema playing famous films or concerts for the guests at night.
 
Another popular social spot among passengers is the Horizon Bar & Lounge. The chic lounge is a great after-dinner hub with a well-stocked bar, skilled bartenders, complimentary refreshments, and plush seating. Floor-to-ceiling windows keep the space light-filled and set against the backdrop of the rolling European scenery.
 
Other notable Emerald Sun amenities include the Wellness Area, Fitness Center, and Hairdresser.

Expertly preserved dishes are par for the course at Reflections Restaurant, which is the central dining venue onboard. Thanks to the Sky Deck’s Sky Barbecue, guests also get the chance to dine under blue skies and starry nights.
