Luxury river cruise line Aqua Expeditions announced it would be expanding its fleet and building another three ships over the next two years as part of a major expansion plan.

The line which has a ship sailing on the Mekong River in Vietnam as well as the Amazon River in Peru, will be spending $28 million to build new beautiful bespoke vessels.

“I am thrilled that after a decade of changing the face of river cruising on both the Amazon and Mekong Rivers we will extend our footprint to coastal cruising in additional soft adventure destinations,” said Aqua Expeditions Chief Executive Officer Francesco Galli Zugaro.

The line is famous for its lavish offerings and specialises in 5-star service on its ships. The Aqua Expedition experience has it all – everything from luxury bedding to haute cuisine curated by celebrity chefs like David Thompson, the god of modern Thai cuisine – while taking you to remote destinations of the world.

“We succeeded introducing intimate and luxurious boats from which travellers take safari-like excursions led by expert guides to discover jungles, wildlife and local cultures,” said Mr Zugaro.

“Onboard, there is not only a staff-guest ratio of 1:1 but also ground breaking cuisine overseen by internationally renowned celebrity chefs.”

The first details of the new vessels and itineraries will be announced later this month.
