  3. Jayavarman
After a week onboard, all six of us agreed that sailing from Siem Reap down the Mekong on the Jayavarman was a great decision. The cabins were much larger than we expected and particularly comfortable with a spacious ensuite. The diningroom and lounge areas were similarly spacious and well appointed. Couldn't fault the food, it was delicious, varied (every day) and more than enough (buffet breakfasts and lunch). The staff were wonderful and were almost the highlight of the trip. Maybe it was because we were an outgoing group of 3 couples but the staff were great fun, remembered names from Day 1 and were great fun. There were numerous opportunities for offshore experiences and things to do onboard. It was a lazy way to travel. We sailed in October, we gathered a quiet time because there were about 32 passengers onboard, a bit more than half. That was enough for us. A full cruise wouldn't have been as pleasant we believe. But all in all, a fabulous trip.

Relaxing luxurious way to travel down the Mekong River
