Review of RV Jahan

RV Jahan cruise ship is owned by the Heritage Line and chartered by the cruise line National Geographic Lindblad Expeditions as one of the top-rated boutique-style Mekong River cruise boats.

History - construction & ownership

The 950-ton ship RV Jahan was named after Shah Jahan, an Indian emperor who ruled Mughal Empire from 1628 to 1658. Shah Jahan was a great patron of architecture and arts. He oversaw the construction of plenty of legendary sites, including the dazzling Red Fort in India, and the famous 777 gardens of Kashmir.RV Jahan cruise ship, Mekong River, Cambodia-Vietnam
