Sail Date: Sep 2016
Cabin: Balcony Stateroom

food was fantastic, almost felt like being fattened up for Christmas,so too bad if diet conscience,

The river itself didn't do much for me, but it still was interesting & there was various opportunities to get off & look around. Phenom Penh had plenty to do. Royal Palace, National & Genocide Museums,

The guides gave plenty of information regarding the history of Vietnam & Cambodia, the killing fields, Silk making loom set up in Cambodia was very interesting as was the village silversmith all tour guides had very clear English so language was never a problem.

Cabin Review

Balcony Stateroom

Cabin B

well appointed. shower has both rain shower & hand held,

bed was hard

safe

window doors which can open up,

no tv, on the ship (which suited me) no internet station.

internet on private equipment is intermittent depends on where you are.

Port Reviews

Phnom Penh

royal palace, museums, parks, gardens waterfront walks

Siem Reap

gateway to Angkor Watt territory. good shopping & restaurants. but be careful with street urchins, can be overly aggressive.

Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon)

city tour in saigon. very hectic. glad to get out of the place

Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon)

learned a lot. French got allies (indo china) in on WW1

the war museum was expectedly biased but an eye opener

Hanoi

ridiculous amount of boats available. far too many which will in evidently ruin the area. Do not go swimming. the swimming area is dirty & smelly & with all those boats close by it isn't rocket science as to why.
