Emerald Sakara sailing inaugural summer Mediterranean season

Emerald Sakara's inaugural season is in the Mediterranean
Emerald Cruises’ second luxury yacht, Emerald Sakara, completed her inaugural Piraeus to Civitavecchia (Rome) cruise this past weekend.

Under Capt. Jonathan Edwards, who served as the master for sister Emerald Azzurra when she launched in 2022, Emerald Sakara is now sailing a summer season in Italy, Greece and the Adriatic. 


Nearly identical to her sister, Emerald Sakara’s interiors feature enhancements from furniture brands like Tribu and Gervasoni, lighting by designer Tom Dixon, as well as a collaboration between Freifrau and Missoni.

Technology upgrades include Starlink Internet services. 

'Launching a new luxury yacht is always exciting as the tremendous work done by our talented team of designers and builders comes to life,' commented Glen Moroney, Scenic Group chairman and founder.

'Being able to add Emerald Sakara nearly a year after we launched Emerald Azzurra speaks volumes about how well our yacht cruising programme has been received by guests and our agent partners,' he added.

Winter in the Caribbean and Central America

At the end of the summer Mediterranean programme Emerald Sakara heads across the Atlantic where both Emerald Sakara and Emerald Azzurra will winter in the Caribbean and Central America.

Emerald Sakara will be christened in San Juan, Puerto Rico on December 2, with godmother Kelly Craighead, president/CEO of Cruise Lines International Association, doing the honours.
