Full of beautiful landscapes, welcoming people, superb food and poignant history, Emerald Cruises will ensure you experience the many highlights of Southeast Asia. Enjoy a journey of discovery as you uncover hidden wonders, and enjoy authentic local experiences.
EXPLORE THE MEKONG - VIETNAM & CAMBODIA
At over 2,700 miles long, the mighty Mekong river is most definitely king, and its people have developed ingenious ways to live in harmony with this beautiful landscape. Journey with us through the wonderful maze of waterways of the Mekong Delta, where life is simple and traditional yet fascinating and captivating. Travel in complete comfort and style on board our specifically designed Emerald Harmony Star-Ship.
Our three immersive itineraries all allow you to explore this magnificent region. From cruising through floating markets where you can shop for fruit, clothes and souvenirs from the side of your boat, to watching children riding on the backs of water buffalo, you will be immersed into this rural lifestyle and learn why this region is called the ‘rice bowl’ of Vietnam. Being one of the most important and successful agricultural regions in the world, it holds a myriad of exquisite foods to sample.
Our spectacular Emerald Harmony Star-Ship will exceed all your expectations, as it introduces you to the majesty of the Mekong. Reaching 239ft (73m) in length, 42 cabins accommodate 84 guests and 40 crew members, enabling us to provide spacious suites and public areas, as well as an excellent staff-to-guest ratio. Unlike other similar sized ships, we have specifically designed the Emerald Harmony to sail into the centre of Ho Chi Minh City, allowing us to dock in the heart of this fantastic city.
Every one of our suites and staterooms are chic, modern sanctuaries fusing authentic Asian style with contemporary design. With all the amenities you’d expect from a world-class hotel, you’ll enjoy a restful sleep in your queen or twin-size bed, as well as an en-suite bathroom, luxury toiletries and bath robes. And once back from your included excursion unwind by watching films on your HD flat-screen television and keep up with loved ones, using free Wi-Fi.
Savour delicious cuisine every day in the Reflections Restaurant, including Asian-inspired dishes and home favourites. Breakfasts and lunches are included, as well as decadent five-course à la carte dining in the evenings, Reflections Restaurant is a great place to meet up with your fellow guests and recall the highlights of the day’s onshore exploration.
