French firm CroisiEurope has taken over the four-vessel Mekong River Cruise Company.

The buyout follows the company chartering the vessel RV Indochine for the last four years.

The Asian company will retain its original name – Compagnie Fluviale du Mékong – to which the trademark “by CroisiEurope” will be added.

This acquisition gives CroisiEurope four colonial-style vessels which will cruise along the Mekong between Cambodia and Vietnam.

All the vessels will maintain their original cruises from Siem Reap to Saigon via Phnom Penh from August to April.

Two additional boats in the same style will be constructed in Vietnam in order to expand the fleet.
