A great trip

This was a wonderful trip. Rather than repeating everything I'll just say I agree with everything the main cruise critic review said. Terrific food. Comfortable cabin. Really interesting trips off the boat with very knowledgeable guides. The only reason I didn't give it the extra star is because of how hard it was to get any information from the cruise line. When you call their number you ...

Overall it was a wonderful start to our extended trip in SE Asia. I selected this boat based on the positive reviews but also the fact that it is the only boat small enough to generally sail the entire route HCM city to Siem Reap without the extended bus ride other river boats take. This is a huge benefit thought be aware that really this is only the case from August-October, maybe November if ...

Expect the days to be HOT and humid at each port you visit. If you can stand the heat and like to sweat, then you'll have a great time. I enjoyed the food offered on the ship, the chefs had nightly special, that gave you a chance to try foods that you wouldn't have a chance to enjoy otherwise. The crew couldn't have been more helpful, from keeping the room clean, deck dry, and even cleaning your ...

To visit Vietnam and Cambodia. Saw only a limited area of each country. Cruise was great. Guides were fantastic. Got to understand more about each country. Visits to war memorials were very informative. Felt very safe. Cambodians so friendly. Traffic is chaotic. Learning how to cross a road was a big education - not to hesitate when a motorbike is heading straight to you is a big mindset ...

My family and I do a big adventure trip every year and we had been wanting to do SE Asia for a couple of year and just couldn't find anything escorted that lined up with school holiday breaks. We booked about 9 months in advance for myself, my active but older parents and my 16 yr old daughter. We have previously done only land packages with Tauck tours and were looking for something close to that ...

We chose this cruise as it was a part of Asia we had not visited before and included time in Ho Chi Minh and then Siem Reap to see the temples at Angkor Watt . A stopover of two nights in Singapore had been added as a booking inducement The Scenic Spirit is a purpose built Mekong River boat catering for around 84 guests with a range of cabins over three decks. The ship I understand is about a ...

Great Cruise but Avoid Cabins VS 201 & 202

This cruise on the Mekong Navigator was through Evergreen (Emerald) tours Great modern ship with very good facilities, fantastic dining and service. While cabins were roomy and clean, there were issues with the cabins we stayed in (VS201 & 202) due to poor design of the ship's anchor system. We unfortunately were put into cabin VS201 (our friends in VS202) at the nose of the ship, which was ...

I had been to Vietnam during the Vietnam war in the late 60s and wanted to see and experience it in a different light. Angkor Wat was also on our bucket list. We found the Vietnamese people very warm and likable, but their tourism industry needs a little help finding better venues to see. Cambodia was phenomenal as were there people and the ruins. Angkor Wat is a must see. Bangkok ...

Review for Angkor Pandaw to Asia

First Time Cruiser

Age 70s

Joined the ship in Saigon for a 3 night / 4 day cruise to Phnom Penh. Cost was approximately £500 (GBP) per night for a double cabin. Passengers met for registration at the Intercontinental Asiana in Saigon. It was disappointing that Pandaw did not arrange for coffee to be available during what turned out to be a 2 hour wait for transport to the ship. Not a good first impression. That said, ...

We went on the 12 day vietnam Cambodia tour including 7 nights river cruising. Started in Saigon at Sheraton, had a wonderful Luke Nguyen inspired degustation at Xu, absolutely faultless! Went to the Tunnels which was an eye opener, especially when one person at the tunnels told us he had lived in the tunnels for 12 years during the vietnam war...unbeleivable!!!!! Did an amazing cookery class in ...
