Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Sep 2016
  • Destination: Asia River
  • Cabin Type: 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.

It can be any type of cruise you want, relaxing, cultural, historical be continually pampered or just read a book.

The rooms were very well appointed, the staff were genuinely pleasant & so helpful a real pleasure to meet.

I don't think it matters which floor one takes, but a stair case is the only way to get up & down.

River crossing entry into Cambodia

Do not do visa for Cambodia on line as it will not be accepted.

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.
