She’s the ‘future of cruising on the Mekong’, according to Evergreen Cruises & Tours, which is excited over the recent launch of its newest & most sustainable vessel, Emerald Harmony.

The line’s first custom-built Star Ship outside of Europe welcomed its first guests late August, and has since been delivering dreams along the Mekong from Vietnam to Cambodia. And it’s doing so in an entirely environmentally-friendly way.

Specially designed for travel to and from Ho Chi Minh, she gives the line access to the “heart of the city” and offers guests a “stylish and contemporary” experience.

Emerald Harmony is the first Star-Ship to remove the use of all single-use plastic on board.

The move will be replicated across the line’s European fleet, but in the meantime guests with a complimentary metal water bottle can refill them from water stations around the ship.

Glass water bottles will be provided in cabins and bamboo/paper straws will be available in the restaurants and bars.

Miniature bathroom amenities bottles will be replaced with refillable dispensers.
