Emerald Star – which is operated by river and canal cruise company Le Boat and owned by specialist holiday group Travelopia – offers journey/route itineraries in Ireland, the UK, and continential Europe.

The update comes as Emerald Star introduces a new series of in-depth itinerary suggestions for 10 of its most inspiring destinations.

Understanding that many customers are first-time boaters excited about learning the ropes, Emerald Star has combined its decades of in-house expertise and local knowledge to create 10 perfectly balanced programmes, aimed at delivering a relaxed and memorable waterway experience.

The new fleet of itinerary suggestions cover some of Emerald Star’s best-selling holidays in France, Germany, England and Canada.

These hour-by-hour itineraries combine all the local must-see and lesser visited villages with Emerald Star’s own insider recommendations of where to stop, eat and explore – all without pushing the boat out.

As well as giving customers a realistic idea of what they can pack into their trips without going overboard, the well-balanced schedule suggestions are carefully designed to ensure holidaymakers enjoy the greatest possible self-drive boating adventure, whether they follow the routes verbatim or use them as a general guide. No boating license or experience necessary.

From where to stock up on provisions for a budget conscious purse and unmissable local delicacies, to ways to keep the kids entertained along the way or celebrate a special occasion, the itineraries are intended to complement the practical directions and boat instructions to bring each destination to life.

Cheryl Brown, Managing Director of Emerald Star, said: “We know it can be tempting for our guests to pack so much into their cruising experience that they return home as tired as when they set off. We hope that, by sharing our top tips of how to get the most out of some of our favourite trips, alongside a host of practical suggestions, we’ll not only take the hassle out of holiday planning, but also help keep all the family fully entertained while they’re away”.
