The Jahan by Heritage Line, Mekong River

Inspiration of Indian art & architecture influenced the Khmer culture
The most romantic three- to seven-night itineraries on the Mekong

Mekong Delta | Siem Reap | Phnom Penh

Plying the languid waters of the mighty Mekong River, Heritage Line The Jahan enchants as the most romantic cruise liner of Heritage Line’s ‘family’ of cruise ships. This magnificent vessel is named after the Indian emperor Shah Jahan, a highly cultured monarch who ruled the 17th century Mughal Empire. A fitting namesake for this splendid river cruise, that evokes the opulent vessels of British India and a bygone elegance of travel.

The dreamily romantic The Jahan offers guests all the high-class amenities of a fine resort, besides memorable on and off-shore activities. Leisurely indulge your time at the atmospheric East India Club, an open-air bar and lounge, reminiscent of an old British-Indian Club. Observe the meandering Mekong through 180-degree panoramic windows at The Observatory, an Indian-inspired indoor lounge with wide cosy divans. Taste gastronomic creations at the stately Viceroy Dining Hall, or pamper yourself at Apsara Spa. The pool upon the Terrace Deck, constructed with Turkish mosaic floor tiles, is the largest of any Mekong river cruiser.  

Sprawled across two decks, Heritage Line The Jahan features 26 elegant and sumptuously appointed  Staterooms and Suites, each providing a private balcony. The two individually, designed Noble Suites – Indian The Taj and British Lord Byron – are positioned on the upper deck’s absolute  front. At 51sqm, (549ft) these extravagant Suites are more spacious than most of their Mekong River counterparts and offer an unparalleled cruising experience.

Launch: 2011 | Capacity: 52 passengers/26 staterooms | Cruise Duration: 3,4,7 nights 

Customer Reviews

We had a fantastic time, the service is out of this world, our suite had floor-to-ceiling windows opening to our private balcony so we could sit and watch the life on the Mekong river it was a fascinating cruise with lots of activities and interesting lectures, and we even had a private Khmer cookery class. Soren, Spain - TripAdvisor.

We have just completed a three night trip from Phnom Penh to My Tho on the Heritage lines vessel The Jahan, what an experience, having done a couple of Viking river cruises and a trip up the Amazon have to say that this was superior to Viking, the rooms were massive and showers were better than most hotels we have stayed in, food was of 5 star quality and the chefs have to be congratulated on keeping all 51 guests and 40 staff totally happy. Recommend this trip highly could not fault it at all - TripAdvisor.
