Mekong river cruise, Dec 2018. We chose this cruise because we know and trust Viking, and had not seen much of Asia (this was my wife’s first trip to Asia). This cruise certainly met our expectations: The food was great, the staff was friendly, and the ship’s cleanliness was impeccable. We had ground tours before and after the river cruise which were fantastic. A suggestion about the ...

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 ...

We chose this cruise because I have always wanted to return to Vietnam after servicing there in 1970-71. Being able to visit Cambodia and Thailand were added benefits that provided a very unexpected and memorable experience. Our first night destination was Hanoi which proved to be a very nice experience. The Sofitel Legend Metropole was beautiful and the service and restaurant were ...

We had been on trips with Viking before and met people that highly recommended this cruise. We were not disappointed! This was our fourth Viking cruise and all have been great, but we think this one was the best yet. The service, food, and guides were amazing. We already loved Viking and didn't think they could do better, but they did. The guides were with us through out and all had wonderful ...

Wanted to see and learn about viet nam. Could not do it in a better fashion than a vrc. It was outstanding from a historic,cultural and shopping point of view. Returned home being much more knowledgeable about vietnam and throughly enjoyed the trip. The tour guide was excellent. He was very knowledgeable about the history and was honest in his assessment. Service on board was great as ...

Choose Viking for thismcruise because we had previously traveled with them and had an emergency which they handled beautifully. Know they would be able to handle any possible problem that might come up. Our group leader, Lee, was informed, helpful, so willing to share insights of growing up in the area. For the most part, very good local guides. Loved the itinerary as we saw villages and ...

The cruise was excellent from start to the end. Our Guide received us at the Ho chi Minh City Airport and stayed with us to the end. It was a small intimate ship where we got to know all the fellow passengers. The cabin was adequate and very well appointed considering the small size of the ship. The crew of the ship made every effort to cater to each passenger and their special needs with a ...

Pre-trip Ha Long Bay, (Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh City) Hanoi, Siem Reap (Angkor Wat), Mekong River Cruise, Ho Chi Minh City We have never been taken care of so well on any other Viking River Cruises as we were on the Viking Mekong. This was our fifth river cruise with Viking (Danube, Paris/Normandy, China, and Russia prior). Bob(Tuyen Nguyen) met us at the airport in Hanoi, he took us under his ...

I can't say enough good about this cruise. First, the ship was a throwback to the old British colonial days with teakwood and shuttered doors. We felt like we were reliving history as we along the Mekong. Our room was compact but comfortable. The foods prepared by our chef was exceptional. He prepared special foods daily for those, like myself, with food allergies. The staff from captain to ...

We arrived 2 days early to not be jet lagged. The Viking staff arranged a room. We stayed at the Hotel Sofitel which was modern and has a wonderful buffet. We paid for the expensive breakfast buffet at the hotel and we're extremely glad we did. You really don't need lunch if you do. I strongly recommend the high tea in the bar. I also suggest you pick up some small toys and candy to give to ...
