Heritage Line – A singular luxury cruise company

Heritage Line, established in 2009, is an exceptional and unique cruise operator based in Saigon, Vietnam. For our guests coming from all around the world, we are deeply committed to creating refined voyages along the most fascinating and enchanting waterways in Southeast Asia. We aim to ensure that the experiences on our journeys provide indelible, heartfelt memories that last a lifetime.

Being privately owned, we strive for excellence and distinction along with a personal touch.  We passionately design, build and furnish our ships, working with creative minds and ship building partners made through long-lasting professional relationships. Our luxurious, boutique-styled ships are an iconic and integral part of Heritage Line’s deep appreciation and zeal for river cruising. Few others pays as much attention to creating vessels with distinguising characteristics which set them apart from others. Each of our distinctive ships evokes an elegant atmosphere and ambiance reminiscent of the glorious bygone days of sailing, and our painstaking attention to the tiny details such as materials, outfitting and art displays promise a luxurious and bespoke living experience on board.

Heritage Line currently has a collection of seven small boutique, luxury ships operating on several waterways in four countries: the lower Mekong River in southern Vietnam and Cambodia, Halong Bay & Lan Ha Bay in northern Vietnam, and the Ayeyarwady & Chindwin Rivers in Myanmar. Among these six waterways is a remarkable selection of 15 cruise itineries of varying durations. In addition, our latest boutique vessel, Heritage Line Anouvong, is set to become the first luxury ship to ply the upper Mekong River in Laos upon launching in August 2021 (bookings have been open since July 2019).

We also diligently craft our cruise itineraries as well as manage the operation of the entire fleet ourselves. By controlling all processes in-house, we ensure unsurpassed 5-star quality and service in all areas. Journeys are characterized by a personal passion for fully immersing guests in the destinations and the rivers, and every itinerary incorporates authenic experiences, sustainable sightseeing, local encounters and deep insights into the regions we travel in. At the forefront of our values is guest satisfaction, and we aim to achieve this with a strong focus on delivering an unparalleled customer experience.

The company has its head office in Saigon in addition to representative offices around the globe. Heritage Line’s cruises are sold globally, with our most prominent markets being Central Europe along with Scandinavia, UK, Australia and the Americas. A vast network of resellers promote our journeys, though we also welcome direct bookings with Heritage Line.

Renowned world-wide as a trusted trademark and leading boutique luxury river cruise brand, Heritage Line also engages strongly in corporate social responsibilities, particularly in three key areas. We support local communities and charities by sponsoring projects such as schools in Cambodia and medical services in Myanmar. Heritage Line is also obligated to leave as little a footprint as possible on the environment with initiatives including a clean waste management system and the elimination of single-use plastics on board. And finally, we uphold the values of sustainability by minimizing our impact on the natural and cultural environments of destinations visited on our cruises.
