New Level of Luxury on the Mekong


Scenic has unveiled its latest luxury river cruise ship, Scenic Spirit, which will launch on the Mekong River in January 2016 - travelling over eight days between Ho Chi Minh City and Siem Reap. Continuing to push boundaries with cutting edge design and enhanced safety and sustainability features, Scenic Spirit will be the most luxurious ship to sail the Mekong.

The ship has been designed to deliver a truly exceptional experience for only 68 guests and features the largest all-balcony one-bedroom suites on the river. All 34 suites feature separate bedroom, living room and balcony and range in size from the generous 32sqm Deluxe Suite complete with Scenic Sun Lounge up to the impressive 80sqm Royal Panorama Suite; the largest suite on any river cruise ship in the world. This premier suite features four separate zones – bathroom with extra-large bathtub, rainfall shower and walk-in dressing room; bedroom; living room and outdoor forward facing deck complete with daybed, jacuzzi and al fresco dining table.
