There is no finer way to experience the majesty of the Mekong than on board our spectacular Emerald Harmony Star-Ship. Custom-built to sail this wonderful waterway, Emerald Harmony combines style, and comfort for an unforgettable river cruising experience through Southeast Asia. Discover the benefits of a small ship experience with just 84 guests and 40 crew members for an excellent staff-to-guest ratio, and unlike other similar-sized ships, Emerald Harmony has been custom-built to sail through the centre of Ho Chi Minh allowing us to dock right in the heart of this fascinating city.

Flavours of Asia - Authentic dining on board

Horizon Bar Lounge
A journey through Southeast Asia is a sensory experience, with scents, as vibrant as the surrounding architecture, filling the streets. In Vietnam, strong influences remain from the country's former Chinese and French colonists, while Cambodian cuisine offers up its own unique characteristics. 

We believe food plays an important role in your travel experience, that's why we source most of our produce locally, ensuring that every dish we serve is as fresh and authentic as possible. And, of course, complimentary wine, beer and soft drinks are available with lunch and dinner. 

Lotus Lounge 

Horizon Bar Lounge
On our Emerald Harmony Star-Ship, we have introduced the Lotus Lounge, where dark wooden tones and muted colours relax you as you sail towards your next destination. Located at the front of the Vista Deck, nibbles and snacks will be available here throughout the day, as well as teas and coffees. Watch the endless horizons unfold as you sip your favourite drink and nibble something delicious. 

Reflections Restaurant

Reflections Restaurant
Open seating is perfect for relaxed dining and socialising with fellow guests, as you savour a wonderful variety of Asian-inspired dishes. A wonderful way to conclude a day of exploration, or prepare for one of your many included excursions. And, of course, we will always provide a selection of home favourites for you to enjoy, perfect for the days you crave something more familiar.

Sumptuous Suites

Owners one suite

Ho Chi Minh City

Vietnam’s answer to the city that never sleeps, Ho Chi Minh City is a high-octane expanse where you can’t help but hop along for the ride. Traditional and contemporary worlds collide as glistening skyscrapers stand alongside ancient temples, exuding a unique energy only the former Saigon could possess. Immerse yourself in the vibrancy of an energetic city that has such a fascinating story to tell.

Phnom Penh

Shaped by the Khmer Empire, the Cambodian capital sits at the junction of the Mekong and Tonlé Sap. A kaleidoscope of sights and scents, its lively markets are a treasure trove of delightful local delicacies. Its temples of Wat Phnom and Wat Botum are a haven of tranquillity and spirituality, and, while a peaceful place now, The Killing Fields are a poignant reminder of the city’s past. 

Halong Bay

Known locally as the ‘Bay of Descending Dragons’, Halong Bay is a mystical setting where limestone and forested towers emerge from the tranquil waters of the Gulf of Tonkin. Made up of thousands of islets, it’s a serene network of emerald lakes, illuminating caves and immense natural beauty, crafted by tropical downpours for over 500 million years. Such is its splendour, it’s no wonder it's a recognised UNESCO World Heritage Site.
