It might be an odd feeling for Westerners to celebrate Christmas in a tropical part of our planet. We at Heritage Line make it our personal mission to create a festive ambiance aboard our vessels to make our guests feel right at home, and to bring the joy, happiness and cheer that we all love about Christmas.

Not only will our attentive crew take great care of you during your trip, but our chef, Andy, is putting together his mouth-watering menu complete with all the comforting Christmas favourites, whilst our cruise managers select the jolliest of songs to enjoy while dining. So grab a drink, take a seat on the terrace, marvel at the gorgeous riparian surroundings and wait for that warm Christmas feeling to wash over you. ‘Tis the season, after all…

Be it on the Ayeyarwady, the Mekong or on any cruise in Halong Bay, memorable moments are guaranteed. The Anawrahta crew have invited carol singers and will prepare a sumptuous feast of a traditional Christmas dinner. On our two sister ships on the Mekong, The Jahan and Jayavarman, their lounges are decorated with Christmas trees and offer a ‘silent night’ ambiance to enjoy special moments with your loved one(s). Meanwhile, the Eggnog and Christmas dinner will finally be ready to be served.

For those who prefer a slightly cooler climate, then our three sister ships in Halong Bay are an option. The weather is a bit chilly in the evenings and the Halong limestone formations mystic. A wonderful and intimate set-up for a romantic Christmas Gala Dinner with traditional music and champagne.

We wish all our passengers, partners and friends a truly, Merry Christmas.
