Southeast Asian Expansion For CroisiEurope

Europe’s largest river cruise line has made a significant expansion of its Southeast Asian operations with the purchase of a regional river cruise line. CroisiEurope has taken over Cambodia-based Compagnie Fluviale du Mékong (Mekong River Cruise Company) and its 4-vessel fleet.

 

The announcement strengthens the ties between both entities. CroisiEurope has chartered the line’s 48-guest, colonial-style RV Indochine since 2011 and now adds the 44-guest RV Lan Diep, 20-guest RV Tioum Tou 1 and the 28-guest RV Tioum Tou 2.

 

The company will retain its original name, adding the trademark “by CroisiEurope” as a reflection of the new ownership. Existing itineraries between Siem Reap and Ho Chi Minh City via Phnom Penh will be continued by the fleet, which will be joined by 2 more newbuilds to be constructed in Vietnam.

 

River cruising is fast gaining popularity in Southeast Asia, with the travel market keen to explore the relatively unspoilt backwaters the region has to offer.
