Emerald Harmony will sail its first itineraries this August in Vietnam and Cambodia. Emerald Waterways’ latest Star Ship will start out with 12-, 17- and 21-day cruises and tours along the Mekong River.

The shortest of Emerald Harmony’s trips, the 13-day Majestic Mekong cruise, transports passengers directly into the heart of Ho Chi Minh City thanks to the ship’s specialized design. At the other end of the trip, guests can visit Angkor Wat in Siem Reap. The 17-day Treasures & Temples of Vietnam & Cambodia package adds stops in Hanoi and Halong Bay. The 21-day Grand Tour of Vietnam & Cambodia offers the longest tour of the Mekong. It features all the stops of the 17-day trip as well as visits to Hoi An and Hue.

Passengers who book by August 31 can receive either free round-trip airfare to Asia plus $100 in on board credit per person or $3,000 per couple off the sailing. If guests pay in full by August 31, they can save up to another $1,000. Those who book after this date, but before October 31, can choose between the free air or $3,000 off per couple. Passengers who pay in full by this second date can save up to $600 per couple.

Emerald Waterways maintains a fleet of seven Star Ships, sailing in Europe and on the Mekong. It also operates the MS Rossia in Russia, the Adriatic Princess II in Croatia and the MS Hamees along the Nile.
