Emerald Waterways has opened bookings for its 2021-2022 Mekong River cruises with sailings through Cambodia and Vietnam on the line’s newest Star-Ship, the 84-passenger Emerald Harmony. It will offer four different itineraries. 

Launched in 2019, this ship has a design that allows it—unlike most similarly-sized Mekong river ships—to sail all the way to the city center of Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. So guests disembark downtown and do not have to take a motorcoach from outside the city. 

Incentives for Mekong Sailings

Emerald Waterways unveiled several deals in connection with the opening of the Mekong River cruise season:

  • Guests booking any 2021-2022 Mekong River cruise and tour itinerary of 13 days or longer will receive their choice of $2,000 savings per couple or free, roundtrip air to Asia
  • Those booking the eight-day river cruise will receive $1,500 savings per couple or roundtrip air for $295 per person

These offers apply for bookings made by December 31, 2020. Also, guests paying in full within 14 days of booking will receive an early payment savings of $400 per person; that early payment discount expires September 30, 2020. All bookings include a complimentary "Deposit Protection Plan," allowing guests to book with confidence in the event plans change.

Four Itineraries

Emerald Waterways will operate four different Mekong River itineraries as follows:

  • An eight-day “Majestic Mekong” cruise sails between Prek’kdam, Cambodia, and Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
  • A 13-day “Majestic Mekong Discoverer” cruise sails between Ho Chi Minh City and Siem Reap, Cambodia, with time on land to explore ancient Angkor Wat
  • A 17-day “Treasures & Temples of Vietnam & Cambodia” river cruise and tour adds stops in Hanoi and Halong Bay in the north.
  •  21-day “Grand Tour of Vietnam & Cambodia”  river cruise and tour includes visits to Hanoi, Halong Bay, Hoi An and Hue in Vietnam, plus Siem Reap.

Emerald Waterways is a brand of Emerald Cruises, which also serves as parent company for the newly formed Emerald Yacht Cruises. Emerald Waterways has nine Star-Ships offering river sailings in Europe and on the Mekong, as well as a chartered river ship, Nizhny Novgorod, along Russia’s Volga River.
