Heritage Cruise Line releases '09 routes
Heritage Cruise Line has released itineraries and fares for its first ship, the 58m Jayavarman, which will make her maiden voyage on the Mekong River next September.
As previously reported, Heritage’s parent company, Saigon-based Trails of Indochina, is building the luxurious boutique cruise ship, which will have 27 staterooms with private facilities and balconies, at a cost of around US$4m.
The eight-day cruise between Ho Chi Minh City and Siem Reap, called ‘The Lost Civilisation,’ costs from US$2,675 for a twin-share cabin.
The three-day ‘Deep in the Delta’ cruise from Ho Chi Minh City to Chau Doc, which is situated in the Mekong Delta region of Vietnam close to the Cambodian border, costs from US$743 per cabin.
There is also a five-day ‘Serenity Cruise’ linking Phnom Penh with Siem Reap and a four-day ‘Pearl of the Orient’ itinerary between Ho Chi Minh City and Phnom Penh.
Shore excursions include visits to floating markets, bicycle rides to remote villages and a Vietnamese cooking class.
