Sail Date: Feb 2018
Cabin: Medallion Suite with Verandah

Chose this cruise for the expeditions it promised but it did not fulfill it's promise. We did not get Zodiac trip to Bond island, did not get canoe trips, shore excursions and snorkeling was awful, etc. Local boat to floating island had very poor visibility, we never got to do canoeing around Bond island and did not get to the caves. We never got to the park and the snorkeling water visibility was less than 2 feet. Only acceptable part of this cruise was seeing the orangutans. Trip to Tjong A Fie Mansion was disastrous as I got separated from the main group and nobody knew where our bus was. We never got to Mekong Delta and ended up arriving at Ho Chi Minh City one day earlier. We went to a beach that had nowhere to sit and definitely had no swimming or snorkeling. Over al it was a terrrible trip.

Cabin Review

Medallion Suite with Verandah

Cabin ME

acceptable but old .temperature control was very difficult. our butler was excellent, maid service was very good and all the staff were excellent. food quality was poor. considering the fact that it was supposed to be a luxury cruise. waiters were good. there was no entertainment on the ship.
