The Tourist Vessels On Mekong River


The Tourist Vessels On Mekong River


There is no dressing up for dinner and no "captain’s table". The atmosphere on board is very friendly and informal, more like a party on a private yacht than a cruise ship. Nearly everything is included in the price and there are no hidden extras for excursions. Even your drinks and the crew tips are included in the price of your ticket. There is an incredibly high level of personal service and care aboard, with a crew passenger ratio of 1:2.
