Heritage Line is a cruise line offering refined river voyages in Southeast Asia. Its luxury boutique collection of six vessels includes three extraordinary flagships, all of which travel along the most scenic waterways in Myanmar, Cambodia and Vietnam.

In Myanmar, the cruise line operates Anawrahta, an ultra-luxe vessel. Thoughtfully curated cruise itineraries showcase the best of Myanmar’s mix of natural highlights, spiritual monuments and life along the two big national rivers, the Ayeyarwady and the Chindwin.

All 23 staterooms and suites are expansive and feature in-cabin lounges and spacious balconies. They are artfully designed with intricately carved woodwork and handmade furniture. The openair Kipling’s Bar, the Mandalay Lounge and the vast sun deck with a pool are Anawrahta’s most popular facilities.

Traversing the Mekong River between Ho Chi Minh City (Vietnam) and Siem Reap (Cambodia), The Jahan is likely to be the most romantic cruiser in this region. Large rooms and public areas are decorated to evoke a British-Indian feeling. Each of the 26 elegantly decorated staterooms and suites come with a private balcony, hand-painted artefacts and antique furniture. The Jahan has all the facilities of a top resort: a whirlpool bath, observatory lounge, bar and spa, fitness and steam room.

Ginger is the latest addition to Heritage Line’s fleet, sailing through the serene Lan Ha Bay — a peaceful area of the famous Halong Bay in Vietnam. The suites-only vessel is distinctive in design and public areas. All the suites are naturally flooded with light and come with a balcony. Ginger expresses elegance with warm timber floors, marble bathrooms and distinguished design themes that interlace the long-lasting traditions of Northern Vietnam paired with contemporary accents.

The glass-surrounded restaurant comes complete with panoramic views and an open kitchen. A whirlpool bath and spa are two more highlights completing the on-board experience. On shore, passengers can use bikes to explore Halong Bay’s jungle-covered island of Cat Ba.
