Luxury is a subjective word as is the definition 5 stars. Scenic is constantly reviewed as a 5 star product and because of this and the 5 star rating and luxury spruiked by Scenic in its tour advertising and brochures that we selected the Scenic Spirit from Vietnam to Cambodia. In my opinion some simple truths, grey threadbare towels are not luxury or even 5 star. We needed to asked the room ...

A little disappointed

I had read very good reviews about this boat but found I was a little disappointed. It could possibly be that we went at the wrong time of year as the Mekong was very low and getting on and off the boat was an ordeal at times. The crew had to dig out steps in the muddy banks or put cardboard on the damp mud (an accident waiting to happen, gladly I didn't hear of anyone having one). During one ...

It was definitely more sedentary than what we expected ...

Before booking this kind of holiday please make sure it is for you. If it is what you want it is great, if not you could very well be disappointed. My husband and I cruised on La Marguerite 9-16 September 2014. Our first disappointment was that we in our mid 50s were the youngest on board. On booking we had asked about ages and told it was mixed, but most were 70+. The ship is very nice, but not a ...
