100Ship Type: Motor YachtOperated by: Emerald WaterwaysEmerald Azzurra
, a luxury superyacht added to the Emerald Cruises
fleet in 2022, sets sail with unparalleled style as the first ocean-going cruise ship of the brand. The magnificent 110-meter vessel is lavishly appointed, with six sweeping decks, deluxe amenities, and 50 beautifully designed staterooms and suites for up to 100 passengers.
The Azzurra yacht is custom-built for warmer destinations like the Mediterranean
, the Red Sea, and the Indian Ocean. Agile and small enough to navigate ports that are typically too narrow for larger yachts, Emerald Azzurra cruises are customized to take travelers to a wide variety of exotic locales on the world’s most famous seas.
Emerald Azzurra Staterooms & Suites
Guests get their pick of six different types of accommodations on Emerald Azzurra. All cabin categories feature windows and private bathrooms, while 88% have balconies overlooking the sea.
While Oceanview Staterooms are the most compact accommodations on the Azzurra yacht, they are bigger than your average cabin. Balcony Suites and Deluxe Balcony Suites are a little roomier with balconies and cozy indoor sitting areas. In contrast, the more premium Terrace Suites and Yacht Suites enjoy large private terraces with lounge furnishings and superb views. The most opulent of all Emerald Azzurra accommodations is the Owner’s Suite, which has a separate bedroom, a sitting area, and an oversized private terrace perfect for lounging and alfresco meals.

Everything necessary for a world-class vacation is onboard, including a well-equipped gym, sauna, spa, medical center, and an observation lounge. There are also yoga classes and fun fitness activities. Head to the pool deck for a relaxing dip on the infinity pool, then relax on the poolside sun lounges after your swim. A smaller spa pool is set on the sky deck, with a bar and a large lounge area featuring unrestricted views of the sparkling ocean around.
Active passengers will enjoy the marina platform, where they can enjoy water-based activities. From here, guests can use gear like paddleboards, snorkeling equipment, and kayaks in specific ports. The platform is also where guests can board the Zodiac for excursions away from the yacht.
Other perks of Emerald Azzurra cruises are complimentary Wi-Fi, an English-speaking crew, inclusive excursions, and all onboard gratuities included.
Expert chefs onboard prepare delicious meals using fresh, locally-sourced ingredients every day, which guests can savor with complimentary wine, beer, or soft drinks carefully selected by a sommelier. Reflections Restaurant is where most meals take place, but Sky Bar and Pool Café are great spots for a quick drink. At night, the Horizon Bar & Lounge is a plush, elegant space for cocktails and good conversation.
