Sail Date: Jun 2018
Cabin:

An amazing experience that combines fun, engaging activities (bike, kayak, skip rides and walks) with introductions to culture, history, and local customs. The staff is fabulous and attentive to everyone's needs - beyond belief: They address you by name, respond to your wishes promptly and share of themselves in lectures, tours, and conversation to give you an authentic experience with real people. The food is an awesome combination of local and (to us) new and exciting flavors - and also familiar fare, but all exquisite and fresh and beautifully presented - in various settings (inside and outdoors). Wine and other drinks were of very good quality and generously provided. Accommodations are a dream for a cruise ship: with floor to ceiling windows and a balcony (in our case), we enjoyed the spacious room (and bathroom with two sinks!!) and the views from the first glimpse in the morning in our very comfortable bed. The boat is immaculate, and cleaning service (incl. free laundry service) is seemingly instantaneous. We picked shoulder season (mid-June) which was perfect: lower price, great weather, and the staff outnumbered the guests 2:1. It is well worth to save up for this trip - it was our second with Aqua Expeditions - the Aqua Amazon experience was our first, and equally rewarding.

Cabin Review

Cabin upper deck with balcony

Accommodations are a dream for a cruise ship: with floor to ceiling windows and a balcony (in our case), we enjoyed the spacious room and the views from the first glimpse in the morning in our very comfortable king-size bed. The boat is immaculate, and cleaning service (incl. free laundry service) is seemingly instantaneous. The rather large bathroom (two sinks, big shower with dual heads and nice water pressure) offers nice privacy. We never heard folks in the hallway or next door - solid build...

Port Reviews

Phnom Penh

Exciting city that offers wonderful sightseeing opportunities if you arrive early; very inexpensive to get a great massage or stay in a luxury hotel with fabulous amenities.
