Pool and Cinema


Where else can you enjoy an indoor heated pool with retractable roof?

Make your way to the back of our Star-Ships and you'll discover our most innovative feature, the likes of which you won't find anywhere else on Europe's rivers.

In our constant dedication to bring the highlights of ocean cruising to the intimacy of Europe's waterways, we've developed a custom-built feature that promises to give your time on board an edge.

Our indoor heated pool is located on the Horizon Deck of most of our vessels*. This sanctuary of calm features a retractable roof which will welcome the cool river breeze during those warmer days on the water.

Floor-to-ceiling windows surrounding the entire area bring the outside in and promise endless views while you enjoy a revitalising swim.

Whether you choose to soak in the sights from the crystal-clear pool during your morning dip or lie back pool-side to marvel at the awe-inspiring night skies, it’s hard to imagine a more tranquil setting to relax and unwind.


Watch our heated pool transform into a cinema

On-board our ships sailing the Rhine, Main, Danube and Rhone rivers, the indoor heated pool area transforms into a cinema* at night where we'll show a selection of classic and contemporary films and iconic concerts from some of the world's most famous musicians.

Grab your complimentary popcorn and take a seat!

*Onboard the Emerald Radiance, sailing the Douro, all films are available in your stateroom or suite using your flat screen television.


Relax with a Good Book

If you would prefer to stay dry, you will find that the contemporary decked area surrounding the pool is the perfect place to unwind with a good read.

There's a scattering of comfy lounger chairs and tables, topped off with a tranquil ambience.
