The sea trials took place in Ha Long in Vietnam, departing Ha Long Shipyard on the 20th November at 06:00, with the sea trials completed within 48 hours.
Emerald Azzurra will shortly undergo the final touches to its interior and exterior, as well as complete the training of the on board teams before the maiden voyage on 28 January 2022. Emerald Azzurra will launch with its eight-day Best of the Red Sea itinerary.
Offering a luxury small ship cruising experience, the superyacht will carry just 100 guests in 50 deluxe suites and staterooms, with more than 80 per cent of cabins featuring a balcony.
Glen Moroney, Founder and Chairman, Scenic Group (which includes Emerald Cruises and Scenic Luxury Cruises & Tours) commented:
Emerald Azzurra is the 10th vessel in the Emerald Cruises fleet – joining nine river cruising Star-Ships. Emerald Cruises’ 10th Star-Ship, Emerald Luna, will join the fleet in spring next year, followed by a second superyacht – Emerald Sakara – in early 2023.
