Sail Date: Nov 2016
Cabin: Balcony Stateroom

We chose this ship due to its small size and floor to ceiling windows in the 245 square foot cabins. Really enjoyed having just 31 passengers and a ship small enough to dock at rural villages to experience life in rural Viet Nam and Cambodia. The cabin had plenty of closet space, large bathroom, desk and mini bar with included drinks. King size bed was too hard for me but husband liked it my only real complaint was pillow menu that featured soft and hard pillows, really they were small very hard large semi hard would love to see addition of feather pillow.

The covered outdoor deck was favorite gathering spot while cruising on the river. There was lounge that had full service bar with most drinks included. Wine was $5.00 a glass but included at dinner. Not much for evening entertainment other that couple of movies but we were up early and active all day so most of us for ready to retire early.

For the cruise most of the stops were small villages to see things like silk weaving, silver and copper works visiting a school and seeing everyday life of villages.

Cabin A

Very pretty large room with floor to ceiling sliding doors, as stated in review bed rock hard but was given extra pad that helped some. Pillows foam rubber hard. Robes and slippers included as well as bath products.

Port Reviews

Siem Reap

Angkor Wat is a must see words can't describe the experience of seeing it, amazing to have been built in around 1100. It is larger and covered several sites We also enjoyed seeing the town in a Tuc tuc (motor scooter with carriage in the back) Traffic is crazy butbetter easy to get around in than Ho Chi Min City we were there two days and would have been happy to have a third day.
