Emerald Harmony

Countdown to Emerald Waterways’ New Mekong River Ship Launch in August


Boston, MA (July 2019)

Today marks the one-month-to-go mark until Emerald Waterways’ brand new Star-Ship, Emerald Harmony, begins sailings along the Mekong River.

To celebrate the launch of this unique vessel, following are five things to look forward to when Emerald Waterways’ eighth Star-Ship sets sail on August 31.

1. Sail All The Way to Ho Chi Minh City

Unlike most ships plying the Mekong, the sleek and modern Emerald Harmony has been custom designed to cruise into the heart of Ho Chi Minh City, offering unique river access to this vibrant and historically significant Vietnamese city. The newly released time lapse video of the Harmony build highlights the ship’s unique design and beautiful lines.

2. An Intimate Cruise Experience

Emerald Harmony, Horizontal Lounge

A classic combination of authentic Asian style and modern amenities, Emerald Harmony accommodates just 84 guests in 42 cabins for an intimate cruise experience. With 40 crew members—and an excellent guest-to-crew ratio of almost 2:1—guests can expect personalized service and a warm environment on board.

3. Two Countries, Endless Opportunities

Angkor Wat, Siem Reap, Cambodia

Just a short ride from the dock in Mannheim, Heidelberg is a piece of living history and its castle has survived family disputes, lightning strikes and several wars. Now mostly in ruin, it is one of the most significant Renaissance sites in Europe. Guests can opt for an uphill hike or a coach ride and guided walk of the city. Either way, you’ll come back with new knowledge and impressive photographs from the castle’s surviving terraces.
