We offer a range of delightful pre- and post-cruise city stays and stopovers to extend your luxury river cruise.
Read on for our quick guide to city stay extensions as we answer your frequently asked questions.
Our range of city stays encompasses both pre- and post-cruise extensions. The availability of each city stay depends on your itinerary and cruise sailing.
Each city stay extension will include a city tour, transfers to or from hotels, Star-Ships and airports as required, as well as any optional DiscoverMORE experiences^ you wish to join. The rest of the time is yours to enjoy at leisure.
During your city stay extension, you will stay in a centrally-located hotel chosen by Emerald Cruises. We work with a number of hotel partners in each city to ensure you get the most out of your cruise extension.
If you choose to extend your journey with us on a city stay, Emerald Cruises will organise transfers from the ship to your hotel, and to your airport for onwards travel, all included in the price of your journey.
