Cruise Critic Editor Rating: Cabins

Thirty cabins and suites in total are spread over the main and upper decks. Resembling upscale hotel rooms, all cabins feature timber floors and flat-screen TVs with DVD player.

All cabins have a balcony with two chairs (suite balconies are larger than the standard cabin ones), plus floor-to-ceiling glass sliding doors. There are no insect screens.

All cabins have individually operated air-conditioning units, reading light, writing desk and chair, plus coffee table and chairs. A bar fridge in each cabin is stocked with bottled water. A wardrobe provides plenty of storage. Bathrobes, slippers and hairdryers are supplied. Safety boxes are inside the wardrobe.

Bathrooms feature timber flooring, under-sink storage and a standing shower cabin. Soap, bath gel and shampoo bears no branding, other than the name of the ship. It is listed as Japanese brand INAX on the cruise line's website.

The ship is not wheelchair accessible. Deluxe suites could be configured as connecting cabins, since they feature a bedroom and lounge room.

Main Deck Cabins: Standard cabins measure 21.5 square metres. There are 12 of these cabins on the Main Deck. Room configuration is a spacious bedroom opening on to a balcony, plus bathroom.

Upper Deck Cabins: These cabins (14 of them) are on the same deck as Mekong Restaurant. They feature the same appointments as the Main Deck cabins, with an elevated view.

Upper Deck Suite: There are just two of these suites, both on the upper deck. At 31 square metres, they are almost 50 percent larger than a standard cabin. Bonus features include a larger balcony than the standard cabin, plus a bathtub in the bathroom.

Main Deck Deluxe Suite: Both of the deluxe suites are located on the main deck. At 50 square metres, they feel very spacious and provide plenty of space for a couple or two friends. The design and decor resembles an upscale hotel room -- timber floors, elegant chairs and table, silk curtains -- and might entice passengers to retire to bed early to watch DVDs on the flat-screen TV. Slippers and bathrobes are provided.

The deluxe suites comprise a main bedroom and bathroom (with separate shower and bathtub), plus a separate lounge room and additional bathroom. The rooms could be configured as a connecting cabin if lounges were made up as beds. Each room has a flat-screen TV and DVD player. DVDs may be borrowed from reception.

Beds (that tend towards the firmer side) can be configured as double or twin. In Deluxe Suites you'll find two individually operated air-conditioning units, a telephone, reading lights, writing desk and chair, coffee table and chairs, a wardrobe and safe. A mini-bar fridge can be stocked with complimentary water, beer and soft drinks on request (a privilege only available to Suite passengers). The lounge room features an additional closet as well as a lounge and coffee table.

The bathrooms also feature timber floors and wall panels. In the main bathroom, there is a shower plus a separate, deep bathtub. Hairdryers and magnifying mirrors are provided. Storage cupboard is under the sink. In the second bathroom, adjacent to the lounge room, the decor is similar, albeit on a smaller scale as there is a shower only.

It seems odd that these superior accommodations are located closest to the anchor system, which is loud, especially when dropping in the middle of the night.
