AmaWaterways has released an expanded itinerary lineup for 2018 in Southeast Asia. Cruises will take guests to Vietnam and Cambodia on the Mekong River for seven nights on an up or downstream tour. Vacation extensions are available for pre and post-cruise. 

The AmaDara will journey upstream from either Ho Chi Minh City or Siem Reap. Stops along the way include visits in rural villages, historic sites, floating markets, and a Buddhist monastery. Guests will stay overnight in Phnom Penh, the capital of Cambodia. 

Extension options are available for each cruise. For those traveling upstream from Ho Chi Mihn City to Siem Reap, guests can opt for a 15-night cruise and land program spending two nights in Ho Chi Minh City before the cruise, and finish with two nights in Siem Reap, three nights in Hanoi, and one night in Ha Long Bay. Those traveling upstream can also do a 10 night cruise and land program, which includes the cruise with an additional three nights in Siem Reap.

For those traveling downstream from Siem Reap to Ho Chi Minh City, there are also two options available. The 15-night cruise and land program will offer two nights in Hanoi, one night in Ha Long Bay, three nights in Siem Reap before the cruise, and end with two nights in Ho Chi Minh City. The ten-night program offers a three night stay in Ho Chi Minh City following the cruise. 

Guests will stay onboard the AmaDara, a 124-guest ship that includes private twin balconies in each stateroom, as well as amenities including a spa, sun deck pool, and fitness room. In addition to the main dining room, guests have the option of The Chef’s Table restaurant, offering a fusion menu developed by award-winning executive chef, Primus Perchtold.

AmaWaterways offers early booking rewards and past guest benefits.  Bookings on select departures will be eligible for triple rewards if confirmed before July 31, 2017. Seven-night cruises start at $1,549 per person.
