Emerald Waterways has announced it will launch its first Star-Ship on the Mekong river.
Emerald Harmony will include Emerald Waterways’ signature pool, an Asian-themed Horizon Bar & Lounge, plus, the Reflections Restaurant, with a locally-inspired menu.
The cruise line will offer three itineraries: the 15-day Majestic Mekong river cruise and tour, which takes in Ho Chi Minh City to Siem Reap; the 19-day Treasures & Temples of Vietnam & Cambodia river cruise and tour, from Hanoi to Siem Reap; and the 23-day Grand Tour of Vietnam & Cambodia river cruise and tour, which calls at Hanoi, Halong Bay, Hoi An, Hue and Siem Reap.
David Winterton, Emerald Waterways, global brand curator, said: “Our loyal guests are keen to explore new rivers but want the comfort of a brand they know and trust. As part of making the decision where to build our next Star-Ship, we spent a lot of time talking with our EmeraldEXPLORER members, to find out where they would like to travel with us next”.
Emerald Harmony will also feature the new Lotus Lounge, found at the aft of the Star-Ship, and will contain 42 staterooms and suites.
The accommodation is made up of four lead-in Emerald Staterooms, 32 Panorama Balcony Suites, four Grand Balcony Suites and two Owner’s Suites, each with a wrap-around terrace and hot tub.
