Heritage Line is a consummate collector of classic river vessels. We design our ships to emulate the glories of a by-gone era in the areas we sail. Each is unique in its décor and setting. Each detail is painstakingly crafted to remake history. Authenticity, tradition, art and exploration are the heart of our business.
Considered the father of our ship fleet on the Mekong, the Jayavarman was inspired by a French-Colonial cruise liner. It charms guests with its artful ambience, pastel coloured cabins and quaint wooden bar. It has intricate woodcarvings, Khmer bas-reliefs and Vietnamese lacquer paintings resembling a floating art gallery.
The Jahan is Heritage Line’s most romantic cruise liner. It evokes the opulent vessels of British India and no expense has been spared in the interior and exterior decorations, which showcase the talents of local woodworkers, weavers and artists in Vietnam and Cambodia.
In Halong Bay and its quiet extension of Lan Ha Bay, Heritage Line operates four traditional, high-end boutique junks, collectively known as the “The sisters”. Cruising the breathtaking seascapes of Halong Bay is Violet, the youngest sister with just six suites and known for her bright charm, while the sturdy middle sister, Jasmine, with 23 cabins, journeys with an air of blissful tranquility. In neighboring Lan Ha Bay is the graceful culinary-themed Ginger, with just 12 suites, along with sensuous belle Ylang, offering 10 extravagant suites and an exclusive wellness-themed cruise.
Anawrahta sails the Ayeyarwady and Chindwin Rivers in Myanmar and is built to resemble a British-Colonial paddle-steamer. The vessel features four spacious decks and 23 cabins and spacious suites, all with a private balcony. With its gleaming white rails, polished lacquer and intricately carved woodwork, the Anawrahta takes guests to an era of bygone elegance.
Heritage Line’s latest ship, Anouvong, is the first boutique cruiser with luxury accommodations on the lesser-travelled stretch of the Mekong River in Laos. While meandering along one of the world’s most spectacular waterways, this majestic vessel boasts traditional Laotian artistry paired with French-colonial elegance among its 10 onboard staterooms and suites.
