RV The Jahan Information

Plying the slow, swirling waters of the Mekong, The Jahan is Heritage Line’s most romantic cruise liner. Considered the brother of The Jayavarman in Heritage Line’s “family” of cruise ships, this magnificent vessel was named after the Indian emperor Shah Jahan, who ruled the Mughal Empire from 1628 to 1658. A great patron of architecture and the arts, Shah Jahan oversaw the construction of many legendary sites, including India’s dazzling Red Fort, and the famed 777 gardens of Kashmir. This cultured monarch is a fitting namesake for The Jahan, which evokes the opulent vessels of British India. No expense has been spared in the interior or exterior decorations, which showcase the talents of local woodworkers, weavers and artists.
 
When guests aren’t relaxing in their luxurious cabins they can meet friends in the atmospheric East India Club; soak in the Jacuzzi on the Pool Deck; challenge a new friend to a game of chess in the Observatory Lounge; or enjoy a pampering massage in the Apsara Spa. With three decks, this vessel offers all the amenities of a fine resort, including a fitness center, steam rooms, a range of dining venues and an excellent spa. Stretching 70 meters from bow to stern, The Jahan features 26 beautifully-designed cabins on two decks, each with its own private balcony.
 
Discover the bygone elegance of travel aboard the majestic Jahan. Just as Indian art and architecture influenced the Khmer and Cham cultures in the Mekong Delta, the stunning artistry of The Jahan will inspire you, as will the delta’s vibrant beauty.

Life on board

Life aboard the Jahan, will read much like a royal. Here is just teaser (note: this is not a spoiler warning - for that, you need to experience the Jahan in flesh)
 
The vivid colours of Indochina will gently rustle you from your slumber as the rays of the morning sun glide across the balcony to your well-appointed room. You will be immediately transported to a time when taken back to a time when royals will sleep in whimsical abodes and are awaken by the glow of the balmy sun, the sweet melody of birds singing in harmony and the mysteries of the day yet to unfold.
 
You will hear the pop of a cork and gentle sizzling sound as delectable Prosecco is being prepared to accompany your morning feast. The balcony is the ideal place for your breakfast if you wish for privacy.
 
With such pleasant interruption to the tranquil surroundings, you are assured that the day - which has only just begun - will be laden with promise. The twists and turns of the Mekong - and the therapeutic cadence of the waves - serve as an inspiration to you. At this stage, you quickly come to the conclusion that you have not experienced anything like this before.
 
The Royal High Tea, prepared to perfection every afternoon, will, once again, bring you back to the days of yore - when men tipped their hats and ladies intermittently covered their visages behind paper fans.
 
With your butler tending to your every need, you will relive the life of royalty. And more.
