Gala Celebrations to Mark Inaugural Sailing of The Victoria Mekong

Gala celebrations will mark the maiden sailing of the Victoria Mekong as she makes her way from Can Tho, Vietnam to Phnom Penh, Cambodia. The stylish, contemporary 35-cabin cruiser is set to leave Can Tho on December 11, 2019 on a 4-night sailing with VIP guests on board representing local authorities, business partners, and local and international media.

On the first evening, guests will be feted to a gala dinner as the ship leaves Can Tho, the largest city in the Mekong Delta. After shore excursions the following morning to observe local craftsmen involved in net weaving, wood carving, and incense making on the riverine Tiger Island, guests will continue their river journey to Tan Chau, before being spirited away on speedboats to Victoria Chau Doc Hotel to celebrate the property’s landmark 20th anniversary.

Back aboard the four-deck Victoria Mekong, more shore excursions are scheduled in Vietnam’s Mekong Delta, including visits to temples, floating fish farms, and a silk village, before the ship makes its way to its final destination – Cambodia’s charming capital of Phnom Penh.

The brand new 4-star ship will be one of the first to cruise out of Can Tho, set to become one of Vietnam’s hottest destinations with international flights to / from Kuala Lumpur and Bangkok, as well as connections to a range of domestic destinations including Hanoi, Danang, and the islands of Phu Quoc and Con Dao.

In addition to being a floating resort featuring gourmet cuisine, world-class facilities, and chic, generously-sized cabins and suites, the Victoria Mekong aims to connect passengers to local destinations and culture in the form of on-board musical and dance performances by local artists and carefully curated shore excursions to several less-visited but equally fascinating attractions.

The Victoria Mekong operates 3-night itineraries from Phnom Penh, Cambodia to Can Tho, Vietnam, and 4-night itineraries in the reverse direction. Cruise fares include all meals on full sailing days, all-day free flow of beverages, including soft drinks and local beer, free flow of house wine during lunch and dinner, excursions, and more.

The Victoria Mekong is operated by Victoria Mekong Cruises, a Joint Venture between Thien Minh Group (TMG), one of Asia’s leading travel and hospitality groups, and Wendy Wu Tours, the UKs leading Asia tour specialist. Thien Minh Group and Wendy Wu Tours have set strong commitments for communication and execution to deliver guests the best possible travel experiences enhanced by the highest standards of service. The launch of the Victoria Mekong Cruise is an important milestone for the two companies, setting sights on the start of several similar products in the future.
