Wendy Wu Tours has unveiled a new vessel which is set to sail along the Mekong River, debuting at the end of 2019.
According to UK Asia travel specialist Wendy Wu Tours, cruise lovers are now setting their sights on Asia to get more value for money. Plus what was once seen as purely an adventurous destination for intrepid explorers, the Mekong is now a serious rival to European waterways, such as the Rhine and the Danube.
It’s one of the reasons Wendy Wu Tours is to add to the Mekong River cruise market with the launch of its new deluxe river cruise ship, Victoria Mekong.
Victoria Mekong adopts a stylish and contemporary design with an Asian twist and makes its maiden voyage at the end of this year, sailing four new group tours and two new private tours through Vietnam and Cambodia, all with a maximum of 18 people per group.
The new ship features include a signature cocktail pool and pool bar, contemporary Asia-themed bar and lounge with luxurious soft furnishings, plus a signature restaurant with a locally-inspired menu that showcases native cuisine. In addition, the ship boasts 33 spacious deluxe cabins plus two luxurious VIP suites, all with private bathrooms and private balcony.
“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 Mỹ Tho, a much busier and crowded port.”
John Warr, global sales director of Wendy Wu Tours, commented: “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 5-star standard ship with the price of a 4-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 Mỹ 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.”
