Sail Date: Apr 2019
Cabin: Balcony Stateroom

If you want spectacular scenery and attractions you will need to book the land package that includes Angkor Wat and Harlong Bay. The cruise down the Mekong is more a cultural expose and explanation of historical events in the region. The boat and scenery on the river are still interesting but not spectacular. The cabins are excellent with a small balcony and French doors and the bathroom is clean and of good size with a glass shower screen. Food on the cruise was varied, both western and Asian selections with several selections for every meal. Drinks were available all day with beer and spirits included although they were of limited types , wine was only served with meals in the dining room. I have included photos of the wine list and drink list to give an idea of the extra charges if you wanted to purchase premium wine or spirits.

The passengers are mainly older Americans, Canadians, British or Australians who are able to walk reasonable distances for the excursions.

Excursions were interesting and varied and the guides were well organised.

Balcony Stateroom

Cabin B

Good sized cabin with a small balcony and French windows as well. Bathroom of a reasonable size with a glass shower screen. The cabin was very clean and the airconditioner worked very well.

Port Reviews

Phnom Penh

Phnom Penh is a small capital with a few interesting landmarks and parks but is not outstanding. There are some central markets and night markets that are also not outstanding for variety and quality. There is a sky bar on the top of the largest hotel that is worth a trip to take photos at sunset. There are excursions to small villages and temple complexes that are interesting as well as the Killing fields which although gruesome is worth the trip.
