River Orchid Overview

Charted by Uniworld, the new 60-passenger, 30-cabin River Orchid is a Colonial-style river ship that will sail throughout Vietnam and Cambodia.

Ship activities are intimate; local guides are assigned to every group of 20 passengers. These guides accompany passengers to home-hosted meals, intimate village tours and meetings with residents along the way. A variety of entertainment options and cultural activities will take place in the ship's common areas. During evening visits in Phnom Penh, passengers can enjoy traditional Khmer dances performed by visiting Cambodian children.

A panoramic restaurant, lounge with library, massage room, boutique and sun deck are some of the highlights onboard River Orchid. Because there are no private balconies, each cabin offers French doors leading out to the shared promenade. The cabins also have vanities, built-in closets, safes and individual climate controls.

RIver Orchid sails from Ho Chi Minh to Hanoi. Itinerary highlights for River Orchid include tours of Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam; the ancient monument Angkor Wat in Siem Reap, Cambodia; Wat Hanchey, Kampong Cham and a number of other historical sites dedicated to Buddha in Cambodia.
