‘Sakara,’ Sanskrit for ‘thoughts becoming things,' will make her maiden voyage through the Seychelles before joining sister ship Emerald Azzurra in the Mediterranean, Adriatic and Red and Black seas.
The 110-meter, 100-passenger Emerald Sakara is the 11th vessel in the Emerald fleet, joining nine river Star Ships, as well as the company’s first super yacht Emerald Azzurra, to debut on January 28.
She will have an infinity pool, spa, gym and a marina platform where snorkelling equipment and paddle boards will be available. Like her sister ship, 88% of cabins will have balconies.
All-inclusive pricing includes wine, beer and soft drinks at lunch and dinner and a number of shore excursions. Airport transfers, port charges and taxes, Wi-Fi and on-board gratuities will also be included.
Strong response from Australasians
‘We are delighted with the strong response from Australian and New Zealand guests who have embraced our unique super yacht cruising concept,’ Angus Crichton, director of sales, marketing and product, said.
‘The extra capacity and new destinations the second ship offers are certain to be welcomed by our travel agent partners and their clients,’ he added.
