Keel has been laid on the first of numerous ships planned under a Thien Minh Group (TMG) and Wendy Wu Tours (WWT) joint venture.
The 35-cabin Victoria Mekong will begin operations on December 11, 2019, offering three- and four-night cruises between Can Tho, Vietnam and Phnom Penh, Cambodia.
Designed by VISEC and constructed by SSIC shipyard, the four-deck ship will measure 76.8m in length and 13.2m in width, and is able to accommodate up to 70 passengers. It has received SB (Inland water – Coastal line) classification and will sail under the Vietnamese flag.
The Victoria Mekong will offer passengers a “green” experience plying the waters of the Mekong Delta between Vietnam and Cambodia. Booking is now open for the first six cruises in 2019.
TMG’s existing network of hotels, cruises and other tourism brands include L’Azalée Cruises, Emeraude Cruise – both operating Halong Bay itineraries – and Peak Vietnam.
