River cruises continue to expand in Asia

Luxury river-cruise firm says demand is “voracious”
Scenic Cruises has confirmed new itineraries on both the Mekong and Irrawaddy rivers next year.
The US-based five-star river-cruise company says its Scenic Spirit vessel, which will launch on the Mekong in January 2016, will travel between Vietnam’s Ho Chi Minh City and Cambodia’s Siem Reap on an eight-day circuit.
Meanwhile, Scenic Aura will launch on the Irrawaddy in Myanmar for an 11-day trip between Mandalay and Pyay.
Both ships are all-suite – 34 on Scenic Spirit and 22 on Scenic Aura – and will range from 24m2 to 80m2 in size. The package, targeted at the above-55 demographic, includes free beverages, butler and laundry service, tips and most activities.
“Our expansion into South-East Asia has been a huge success since we launched our Mekong cruises last November,” said Adam Burke, Scenic Cruises’ journey designer Asia. “Our guests’ appetite for cruising this region with us has been voracious, with sales surpassing expectations.”
