Wendy Wu to launch Mekong River Cruise vessel

According to Wendy Wu Tours, more cruise lovers are setting their sights on Asia with interest for Mekong river cruises a top travel trend for agents to take note of.

Value for money and ease of travel, have been cited as both contributing to this rise – making a river cruise one of the best ways to explore life along the Mekong and now a serious contender, and exotic alternative, to European waterways.

Tapping into this trend, Wendy Wu Tours is soon to enter the Mekong River cruise market with the launch of Victoria Mekong. Adopting a stylish and contemporary design with an Asian twist, the river vessel is expected to make its maiden voyage at the end of this year. It will sail four new group tours and two new private tours through Vietnam and Cambodia, all with a maximum of 18 people per group.

John Warr, global sales director for the operator, said: “The Victoria Mekong is a very exciting addition to our portfolio, filling what is a huge gap in the market. The ship has all the deluxe facilities of a five-star standard ship with the price of a four-star cruise offering the utmost in comfort for customers. With Victoria Mekong we are able to offer, for the first time, cruises sailing from the much quieter port at Can Tho Pier to Phnom Penh and return whereas most cruises sail from My Tho, a much busier and crowded port. This route also allows Victoria Mekong to explore the off the beaten track areas and to experience more unique offshore excursions along the Mekong Delta.”

The ship will have 33 deluxe cabins and two VIP suites, all with private balconies.
