I'm not sure why they call this "low season" - we barely saw a drop of rain in a week! We joined the cruise just north of Phnom Penh, Cambodia, for a week-long trip to Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam. The ship is 22 cabins and is able to take you all the way into the city, which was so convenient! The ship has a period feel, with lots of polished wood and brass fittings. Our cabin was on the upper deck towards the prow. Plenty of room for clothes and suitcases, it felt very spacious. The bathroom was small, but had everything we needed, including some welcome cabinets above the sink. We couldn't fault the food. Breakfast and lunch were buffets, with plenty of variety over the course of the week, including Cambodian & Vietnamese curries, as well as pasta and even roast pork! The excursions were awesome and the guides excellent. In one week we: saw the sun set over the flooded plains of central Cambodia; rode in an ox cart; visited a 200 year old Pagoda; tasted snake wine in Vietnam and saw the stunning Vinh Tran Pagoda. The crew were all extremely warm and welcoming. Nothing was too much trouble. Can't recommend this cruise or ship highly enough!

Cabin Review

Cabin Double

Relatively spacious and comfortable, with no shortage of storage or hanging space for clothes and suitcases. Housekeeping kept it neat and tidy, complete with an evening turndown service.
