The ship is brand new and gorgeous. We have travelled on four other river cruises where there were over 100 passengers on board. This ship has only 34 cabins, so only 68 passengers compared to other river boats. It was a 5 Star experience. We have travelled with AMA, Uniworld and Scenic in the past, and so loved the Scenic excursions, all-inclusive pricing and passengers that we wanted to do another Scenic river cruise. We also enjoy Seabourn and SilverSea ocean cruising for their level of luxury, all inclusive pricing and passengers.
On the ship - thick towels, big, comfortable bed, lots of storage. Big bathroom, huge shower, and L'Occitane products provided.The suite is as big or bigger than an ocean cruise ship. Tastefully decorated, with an enclosed sun deck that can open up.
Beautiful lounge, pool area, top deck is a wonderful place to view the scenery, or to do Tai Chi as the sun comes up over the Mekong River. That was a very special - to do Tai Chi with Solana on the top deck and watch the huge orange sun rise over the river. One morning, you could hear music and horns from the weddings taking place on shore that day.
