Mekong Kingdoms has unveiled a new fleet of five cruise ships, spanning a flagship sailing between Luang Prabang and Chiang Khong/Chiang Rai to a “floating lounge” for charter.
The fleet’s flagship, the 13-all-suite Bohème, accommodates up to 26 pax on two- and three-night cruises between Luang Prabang in Laos and Chiang Khong /Chiang Rai in Thailand, starting from US$1,300. The ship features a royal suite and 12 deluxe suites (with air-con, en-suite bathroom & private balcony), an expansive sundeck, lounge, wine cellar and spa.
Gypsy is an ultra-exclusive two-cabin cruiser, which takes up to four pax on a highly-customisable journey from Luang Prabang. The all-inclusive cruise costs US$3,500 a night for three/four pax or US$2,500 for one/two pax.
A third member of the fleet is the 40m-long Monsoon shuttle, which takes guests on a full-day tour of Luang Prabang’s temples, through the Mekong River to Pak Ou Caves, or a sunset cruise. Prices start from US$48 per person inclusive of cocktail canapés and non-alcoholic beverages.
Catering to partygoers, families, or couples, Play is a 42m-long lounge ship and water limo-for-hire featuring an open sundeck, lounge bar, TV and sound system and air-conditioned private room with a bar. The ship can host half or full-day private excursions on the Mekong River, with prices staring from US$750 for 15 pax on a four-hour trip.
And for private explorations for two, Mekong Kingdoms has the Nomad, offering a champagne sunset cruise priced from US$165.
