Cruises are making waves not only with expanded business offerings in Asia, but are finding ways to give back to the community through outreach efforts. One such effort was the partnership between Genting Hong Kong and Tung Wah Group of Hospitals’ (TWGHs) to host the 2nd Charity Voyage.
Crystal River Cruises has welcomed its third river ship, the Crystal Mahler, to its fleet.
The Mahler is a sister ship to the Crystal Bach, a ship that entered service last month. Crystal's first river ship, the Crystal Mozart, launched in the summer of 2016.
Croisi Europe has added the deluxe RV Indochine 11 to its fleet to cruise the Mekong River between Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, and Siem Reap, Cambodia.
The 66-metre by 14.2-metre vessel offers 31 cabins with full sized balconies and “the largest swimming pool on the Mekong”.

Crystal Cruises president and CEO Edie Rodriguez, the public face of the company and its associated luxury brands since October 2013, has stepped down.

Cruise companies in the mobile Internet era are finding new ways to attract travellers by beefing up crucial services.
SkySea, a cruise line in the China market, will be expanding its range of mobile payments onboard the SkySea Golden Era to include Alipay, a third-party payment platform, from September 17, marking the first time the cruise line is accepting third‐party mobile payments on board.
Asian cruise travellers prefer to explore Asian destinations, according to a new report from Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) into the Asian cruise market.
Asian cruise only passengers grew at the fastest rate mostly due to the increase in the Chinese market. In fact, out of the 2,086 sailings scheduled for Asian waters in 2017 - 1,992 cruises (or 95.4%) will remain within Asia, with exclusive Asia-to-Asia itineraries, while an additional 94 voyages are scheduled to pass through the Asia region in 2017.
