French River Cruise Line Acquires Asian River Cruise Company
Drink Packages (12:30 p.m. EST) -- Europe's largest river cruise line has purchased Asian-based cruise line Compagnie Fluviale du Mékong (Mekong River Cruise Company).

CroisiEurope purchased the line, its name and its four-vessel fleet, and announced that two additional vessels would soon be built in Vietnam.

CroisiEurope has chartered the line's 48-passenger, colonial style ship Indochine since 2011.

Although the company will retain its original name, the trademark "by CroisiEurope" will be added.

In addition to celebrating "a new chapter in [the] cruising history … of this French, family-run river cruise company," a statement from CroisiEurope sought to reassure customers who had already booked: "All the vessels will stick with their original cruise planning from Siem Reap to Saigon via Phnom Penh (or vice versa), from August to April [2014]."

In addition to Indochine, Compagnie Fluviale du Mékong's fleet is currently made up of three other ships -- the 44-passenger Lan Diep, the 20-passenger Tioum Tou 1 and the 28-passenger Tioum Tou 2.
