Avalon Waterway's third ship in Asia launches in September 2018 and will make 12- and 17-night sailings between Siem Reap, Cambodia and Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, with extension options.
Avalon Saigon Overview
Avalon Saigon joins sister ships Avalon Siem Reap, which covers the same itineraries, and Avalon Myanmar, which operates on Myanmar's (Burma's) Irrawaddy River. The line also operates 16 ships in Europe.
With just 18 cabins, the ship is small, but spacious. The 245-square-foot cabins feature the line's signature panoramic "open air balconies" -- essentially a 14-foot wall of windows that opens to create an 11-foot opening that spans the length of the room. And as on its other ships, the beds face the windows for optimal views as you relax.
Open-seating dining includes breakfast and lunch buffets and four-course a la carte dinners. Local beer and spirits, along with coffee, tea and soft drinks are available, free of charge, all day. Complimentary wine is also served with lunch and dinner, and sparkling wine is available at breakfast.
A covered open-air Observation Lounge fronts the ship. Behind it is the Panorama Lounge with a bar. There's also a small fitness center and a spa treatment room.
With its new ship, Avalon Waterways has introduced a 17-night Heart of Cambodia & Vietnam itinerary, also available on both the Saigon and Siem Reap ships.
