I have always wanted to cruise the Mekong and this boat came to my attention. This boat is out of this world, the rooms are beautiful, the food is magnificent, the breakfast and lunch are self served with something for everyone, the evening meal is waiter service with a good selection of starters, main course and desert. The service is 2nd to none, staff cannot do enough for you and are always smiling and happy the daily tours are well put together and the guides are perfectly appointed for the Campuchia/Cambodia start to the Vietnam My Tho, their knowledge is amazing and the command of the English language is very very good. I cannot recommend this cruise enough, you want for nothing. My thanks need to go to everyone of the staff on board and Mom, Phanne, Bora, Jerry, Wa & Sarif to name only 6 of the 40 staff looking after about 30 of us. Read Less

I loved this so much, I want to do one they offer in a different location. The website really does not sell the boat or the experience. The boat is beautiful, about 8 years old and well maintained. Everything feels luxurious. I was travelling in low season, so there were only 23 guests (out of total 52) and 40 staff! The food was exceptional (and safe!) - and local to where we were travelling. The staff were always prepared to make changes to whatever you wanted, however. House wine was served foc with meals - I didn’t much like it, so ordered a bottle to suit my choice. But if you were happy with local wine/beer, you are in luck! Good cocktail menu in the bar - I had mango daiquiri. Chop one fresh mango, add 2 shots bacardi, blitz... and serve! There is a lovely small pool on deck - perfect for cooling off in. And the spa had two full-time therapists with a reasonably sized menu, but at AMAZING value. Recommended! The best bit about this cruise are the curated expeditions - all included in the cost. We got to see so much about the real lives and culture of the locals, going to their homes, trying their food, seeing their way of life, travelling the way they do (ox cart, cyclo, tuktuk!) What they don’t tell you, and should, is that you are being followed by a photographer who is recording everything - and you get a FREE CD at the end with all your memories! Bargain! There is free WIFI on board, BUT it is very poor in places, so be warned. Drove me mad. If you need WIFI to survive, buy a sim in both Cambodia and Vietnam - won’t cost you much, and will save your sanity. In Phnom Penh there was a lecture from a University lecturer. Go. He is highly entertaining, and very interesting, on modern Cambodian history. Sounds dry... but one of the highlights. One of the lowlights (in low season) is the transfer from Siem Reap to the port by bus - which took us c. 4 1/2 hours. Yes, it’s boring (there is a comfort break). But the coach is great, and there is WIFI!!! So psyche yourself up and go with the flow... I would suggest not a cruise for kids - no entertainment, all cutural stuff. Also not for those who are less able - as you will be leaping on/off moving boats, in and out of awkward vehicles etc. If mobility is an issue, you don’t like stairs, one to avoid. I went as a single female traveler (age 50) and loved it. Felt completely safe at all times. The other guests were really friendly - left me alone when I wanted it, chatted when I didn’t. I was the only Brit on board - the majority Aussie, with a sprinkling of US, Swedish, Spanish. I regularly just sat on the deck - dozing, reading, listening to music via headphones, just watching the scenery drift past. Incredibly relaxing. In fact, perfect and romantic for a honeymoon?..... This exceeded all my expectations. Read Less
