Emerald introduces Mekong cruises with great savings

Emerald Harmony

The newest Star-ship was cleverly designed to provide an intimate and upscale sailing experience on the Mekong.

Several key features include:

  • 84 guests in 42 staterooms and suites, including 32, 273-square-foot Panorama Balcony Suites with drop-down windows; four, 398-square-foot Grand Balcony Suites; and two, 450-square-foot Owner’s Suites boasting wrap-around terraces with private hot tubs. 
  • Asian-themed Horizon Bar & Lounge
  • 2:1 guest to crew ratio
  • Locally-inspired meals on board
  • Lotus Lounge, situated at the front of the Vista Deck, is a new and quiet spot for guests to relax

The Emerald Harmony will be built to allow access to the center of Ho Chi Minh City, meaning guests will disembark in the centre of the action rather than needing to be coached in from outside the city.

Emerald Waterways will offer four unique itineraries on the Emerald Harmony:

All guests will enjoy a visit to Ho Chi Minh City.
