VANCOUVER – Emerald Waterways is offering big savings on its 2021-2022 Mekong River cruise season through Cambodia and Vietnam.
Guests booking any 2021-2022 Mekong River cruise and tour itinerary of 13 days or longer will receive 50% off one cabin upgrade category (up to a Category S cabin) or $400 CAD per couple off the booking. Combined with the existing fall promotion of $4,000 CAD savings per couple, this translates to a possible savings of $4,400. The offer applies to bookings made between October 22 and November 20, 2020. Additionally, all bookings include a reduced deposit of $250 per person (regularly $500) and complimentary Deposit Protection Plan, allowing guests to book with confidence in the event plans change.
The cruises will take place on Emerald’s newest and most intimate Star-Ship, Emerald Harmony. The Emerald Harmony is also the river cruise line’s greenest vessel to date, built to the highest level of European emission standards and featuring a commitment to a single-use plastic-free experience.
Travellers wishing to explore the Mekong River onboard the Emerald Harmony can choose from one of three itineraries ranging from 13 to 21 days, each designed to allow guests to discover a fascinating way of life, sample regional cuisine and learn about a culture rooted in agriculture and a warm community spirit. The longer itineraries feature time on land to explore iconic locations in Cambodia and Vietnam such as the famous temple complex at Angkor Wat in Siem Reap, the bustling capital city of Hanoi, and breathtaking Halong Bay. Those looking to further explore Asia can opt for a four-day land extension in the ancient city of Luang Prabang in Laos, or a three-day extension in remote Sa Pa, nestled in the Hoàng Liên Son Mountains of northwestern Vietnam.
All Mekong cruise itineraries include a visit to the busy metropolis of Ho Chi Minh City. The Emerald Harmony’s clever design allows it to sail to the centre of Ho Chi Minh City, allowing guests to disembark in the middle of the action rather than needing to be coached in from outside the city as they would with many similarly sized ships.
With only 84 guests in 42 staterooms and suites, Emerald Harmony offers an intimate and upscale sailing experience on the Mekong. Built to the highest European safety, fire, hygiene and emission standards, the ship features spacious cabins, including 32 Panorama Balcony Suites with drop-down windows measuring 273-square feet; four 398-square-foot Grand Balcony Suites; and two 450-square-foot Owner’s Suites boasting wrap-around terraces with private hot tubs. The ship also features a pool located on the aft deck, an Asian-themed Horizon Bar & Lounge, and an impressive 2:1 guest to crew ratio. The menu in the main dining venue, Reflections Restaurant, will serve a locally inspired menu showcasing native cuisine from the region. Featuring dark wooden tones and muted colors, the beautiful Lotus Lounge, situated at the front of the Vista Deck, is a new and quiet spot for guests to relax and watch the horizon unfold as the ship sails.
