19-Day Treasures & Temples of Vietnam & Cambodia Cruise Review

“As regular European cruisers, we thought we knew what to expect on this, our first voyage into Southeast Asia, but we were just not prepared for the beauty and deep cultural dive this cruise offers. It is a remarkable blend of river time and land-based sightseeing with a remarkable range of excursions so you can savour the life of local Cambodians and Vietnamese. Emerald Harmony is the most delightful ship with absolutely every comfort and convenience. I don’t believe there is a holiday like this anywhere else. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime cruise.”

Ben and Jessie, Doncaster

Find answers to some of the most common questions about river cruising here.

What is Emerald DiscoverMORE?

Enjoy a glimpse into worlds other tour operators don’t reach and discover fascinating insights that are way beyond the ordinary. With Southeast Asia’s rich culture and heritage, Emerald DiscoverMORE will bring your cruise to life.

Do ATOL and ABTA protect Emerald Cruises?

Relax and cruise with the ultimate peace of mind. Emerald Cruises is a member of both ATOL (Number 9294) and ABTA (Number Y6328).

Do Star-Ships provide mobility wheelchair access?

Emerald Cruises prides itself on welcoming passengers with medical conditions or limited mobility. However, sometimes, the ship’s design may limit access; some Star-Ships do not have elevators to all decks. Shore excursions may require you to board a coach, so you must be able to manage the stairs. In the majority of cases, a travel companion should be able to provide enough assistance, but if you have any concerns, then our friendly booking team will be happy to advise you.
