Excellent cruise and tour of SE Asia
"Because it is a long flight from the east coast of the US, we wanted to maximize our time there so we added the Viking extensions to Bangkok before and Ha Long Bay after the 14 day regular trip.The Peninsula Hotel was amazing with a large room, great river view, wonderful food and a calm atmosphere...."Read More

Magnificent, Magical & Meaningful

Review for a Asia River Cruise on Viking Saigon

Karrein
6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

We wanted to learn more about the history of Vietnam and Cambodia. Our guide Lee was the best! He shared his personal stories, which added so much depth. Lee was always attentive and caring to our group’s needs. Always very organized. We were so lucky Lee was our guide. In general, the ship was beautiful and new. The staff were wonderful and friendly. Somehow the desk staff knew all our names ...

Amazing service level and accomodation - but maybe for the future

Review for a Asia River Cruise on Viking Saigon

6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

We retired early and have been traveling almost non-stop - averaging about one trip a month. We have broken down our future plans into three buckets. The Go Go Years, the Slow Go years and the No Go years. We are still in the first bucket, and hope to be there for many years yet. This Viking cruise was an experiment for us to see which bucket these vacations would fall into. The ship was ...

Awesome Birthday Adventure

2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

We absolutely loved the Viking Saigon Ship. We didn't want to leave. The people were extremely friendly and we enjoyed all the tours. We also enjoyed the patio bar dining in the back of the ship along with cooking classes offered by the staff. Even the land Hotels were five star. The interaction with the people that Viking supports made the trip even more special both in Vietnam and Cambodia. We ...

Amazing journey thru Vietnam and Cambodia

Review for a Asia River Cruise on Viking Saigon

2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

I was more than happy to avoid this part of the world when I had to chance to see it in 1968, but after a half-century has passed and we've all patched up our differences, I got curious. I felt like I should see it for myself and try to understand the people there and their history. Viking river cruises offered exactly what I wanted--direct, in-depth introduction to the place, the people and their ...

Lovely boat but land portion needs work

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

This Mekong cruise, with my hubby, fit with other Asia travel plans. We are early 60s, in good health & walk 3-5 miles a day. The good: Hotels were mostly 5 star and had good breakfast buffets with extensive variety. Viking Saigon was beautiful with lovely, well appointed, large cabins and a good variety of food. Buses had AC and carried cold, bottled water, but not toilets (not ...

"Magnificent Mekong" lives up to its name--plus some

Review for a Asia River Cruise on Viking Saigon

tcsprakk
6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

We booked this cruise, in part, to see a part of the world that was unfamiliar to us, yet a part of our lives growing up--the Vietnam War and the Cambodian genocide in particular. We added both the Ha Long Bay and Bangkok extensions and are so glad we did. Ha Long bay is an other-worldly UNESCO site that will leave you speechless, and Bangkok (with the Chinatown and street food excursion on the ...

This has definitely been one of our best cruises. We totally love cruising with Viking. The Viking Saigon is a beautiful new ship. The crew members and staff were excellent. They went out of their way to help us. UT was our program director. He has been the best one we have ever had on Viking Cruises. He went out of his way to make everyone’s trip memorable and enjoyable. Most of us were older and ...

Magnificent Mekong

Review for a Asia River Cruise on Viking Saigon

MirLopez
6-10 Cruises • Age 70s

Asia had been on my bucket list for 20 years. The original plan was to travel in 2020 just as the Covid-19 pandemic hit so the trip was postponed 3 times. We finally decided on the Magnificent Mekong Tour since it covered 3 countries: Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand. We did take advantage of both the pre-cruise extension to Ha Long Bay and the post-cruise extension to Bangkok. Viking does a ...

Viking Mekong 5 Star all the way!

Review for a Asia River Cruise on Viking Saigon

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

We had done most of the rivers in Europe with Viking so we wanted to try something new and different. Our last Viking river trip was the Nile in Feb. 2020 and I thought nothing could surpass that trip but the Mekong did. The entire trip was top notch all around, from the flights, the hotels, the food, the ship and the excursions. Most importantly the guides for all 3 groups were ...

Wonderful visit to Viet Nam, Cambodia and Thailand

Review for a Asia River Cruise on Viking Saigon

willbarbee
2-5 Cruises • Age 80s

We were able to visit all views of the countries - the large cities, the small towns and the small villages. It was a broad-brush view of Asian countries. To see the "Hanoi Hilton" in person was very moving. The temples in Cambodia, Angkor Wat and Ta Prohm and others were especially good. And for us who were somewhat unstable, the Tuk-Tuk driver helped. The use of Tul-Tuks was a great ...
