Paradise Awaits: Discover the Seychelles with Emerald Cruises

Emerald Azzurra is set to sail to a brand-new destination in 2024: the Seychelles!

This beautiful, yacht-style ship carrying a maximum of just 100 guests is perfect for sailing the Seychelles and the Indian Ocean, docking in smaller, lesser-known ports that bigger ships simply can't. The onboard atmosphere is relaxed and refined in natural surroundings that will take your breath away.

Nestled away, over 900 miles from mainland Africa, lie the blissful Seychelles Islands. Brimming with incredible landscapes, rare wildlife, and a vibrant atmosphere, a Seychelles cruise will introduce you to East Africa’s archipelago of utopia, with visits to Cousin Island, La Digue, Praslin, Aldabra, Aride Island and the Farquhar Group Islands to look forward to.
