Great Riverboat Journeys – 20% reduction on all trips
The company offers 20 different riverboat journeys along the Mekong, Kwai, Ganges, Hooghly, Brahmaputra and Irawaddy rivers. Vessels are small, ranging from 11 to 46 cabins, and each offers an intimate on-board experience and a close-up view of life along the river.
A 7-day trip along the Lao section of the Mekong River, starting and ending in Pakse, is reduced from $1710 to $1370. A luxurious journey aboard the newly launched La Marguerite, from Saigon to Siem Reap now starts at $2285 (reduced from $2855). An 8-day cruise along the Hooghly River, in Bengal, is now offered at $1775 (reduced from $2215) and an 8-day journey along Assam’s Lower Brahmaputra River is now available for $3140 (reduced from $3925). All prices are per person, twin share, based on the lowest cabin category.
“Interest in riverboat cruising has surged in the last 12 months”, according to director Robert Fletcher. "However the market is still a little quiet so, with a surging Australian dollar, we’ve decided to offer our own little stimulus package to kick things along.”
