After 10 successful years of luxury cruising through the waterways of Southeast Asia, Heritage Line is excited to announce the launching of our new luxury vessel, the Anouvong, along with a new route to exotic Laos in 2020! Named after the last ruler of the Kingdom of Vientiane, Chao Anouvong, who united his citizens with a neighboring Laotian realm to rebel against the dominion of the Siam empire. The Anouvong pays homage to this early 19th century king by embracing traditional Laotian artwork fused with French-colonial elegance.

Sail the Upper Mekong in extravagance while staying in one of the ten intricately designed staterooms, including two spectacular Signature Suites equipped with in-room Jacuzzis and private balconies. Marvel at the panoramic views while lounging on the spacious terrace deck, indulge in full-body and mind relaxation at the spa, or satisfy your culinary cravings with tasty local and international flavors in the exquisite Luang Prabang temple-themed restaurant.

The Upper Mekong River, known to the locals as the “Mae Nam Khong” or “Mother of Waters”, is a rarely travelled stretch of the world featuring magnificent views of the serene riverscape, splendid pagodas, and charming, unspoiled villages.

The Anouvong offers two unforgettable journeys on the Laotian waterways:

– Golden Triangle Traverse: 3-night trip from Luang Prabang to Huay Xai (or vice versa)

– Laotian Serendipity: 7-9 nights from Vientiane to Huay Xai (or vice versa)

Keep an eye out to our latest news, as we will keep you updated and announce when bookings are open for the Anouvong!
