Aqua Expeditions (fleet) announced the long-awaited return of its Aqua Mekong ship which will once again set sail through Cambodia & Vietnam starting September 2, 2022.
With this resumption, the entire fleet of Aqua Expeditions will be back in operation.
RV Aqua Mekong welcomes back individual travelers, groups, and charter bookings to see the best of Cambodia, starting with Phnom Penh and Siem Reap (Angkor Wat)-bound sailings.
The news follows the April 2022 restart of Aqua Blu in Indonesia, where restrictions are easing and will allow the cruise line to have quarantine-free regular departures as of June 2022. Aria Amazon and Aqua Nera have been sailing the Peruvian Amazon since mid-2021.
Aqua Expeditions says that by opening a window into modern-day Theravada Buddhism and the past of the 9th to 15th-century Khmer empire, their expert local guides would help guests uncover "intriguing cultural facets of the Mekong, well beyond the region’s beautiful golden-roofed temples and ancient relics."
"Explore the region through daily guided kayaking or biking excursions, and when you’re back on board, indulge in our award-winning cuisine by Michelin starred chef David Thompson.”
