Was the biggest disappointment of our 3 weeks in Asia. Had already been on the Aqua Amazon River cruise so had high expectations. Food was okay but seemed we had a lot of the same thing. The rooms were nice.. Guides were great. Would hesitate to use this cruise line again. But of course no experience is totally bad -... More

The quick tip to the our is don't get it booked from the hotel :). There is a boat point around the Titanic restaurant (every one knows it) on the sea side, and bargain your bet. We were 4 people and booked a 2 hour private boat for 50$, got our food, music and wine. The evening was fantastic and... More

The Heritage line's Jahan is a beautiful ship but they need to lift their game a little. It was not their fault that the rive was too low to get to Seam Reap, instead it was a bus rive for a number of hours to get to the ship. I do not do bus, coach at a pinch this thing... More

We visited Cambodia from 14th October and were lucky enough to be invited on the inaugural cruise of the Mekong Dawn. This newly fitted Boutique style boat has 8 comfortable double cabins, all en-suite and fully air-conditioned, a large saloon for taking meals and plenty of deck space front and back for lounging around. We set off from Phnom Penh... More

So all I can say is....there are 12 other boats/companies that do this trip.....do NOT go with cruiseco. We were due to fly out at 9am on a Saturday morning and only found out at 4.35pm on the previous day, what and where we were going to be staying. This was not helped by DBT travel who did not thoroughly... More

I cannot wait to repeat this trip with my family and also to go on one of this company's river cruises on the Amazon river. The Meking river cruise was a fabulous experience and extremely interesting. The same company has two luxurious cruise boats on the Amazon river and has recently added this boat on the Mekong river to their... More

Raffle hotel in Siem Reap was exceptional for friendly service & outstanding breakfast. Local sightseeing well organised. Easy tuk tuk ride to town for dinner where food was good quality and cheap. Do take the time to see 'Phare' which is a short walk from the hotel - like Cique de Soleil without the glitter but more visceral. 5 hr... More

I went in a boat ride in an evening while in Cambodia, Phnom Phen. Worth visiting and beautiful in with the sunset and in moon light. I was lucky to get a view from my hotel and it was right after full moon day. I did enjoy the scenery very much. You should take some water with you, it is... More

We did the cruiseco adventurer upstream starting in Saigon. Our cabin was spacious, the facilities comfortable, especially the shower which was surprisingly large. The meals were very good with plenty of choices. The crew aways helpful. Our tour guides in Vietnam and Cambodia were knowledgeable and punctual.because we traveled upstream, we had a 5 1/2 hour bus trip to Siem... More

Booking last minute and unsure what to expect, we choose a three night/ four day cruise on The Heritage Lines Jayavarman, -(Pearl of the Orient, Phenom Penh to Ho Chi Min) , and as cruise novices we could not have made a better choice of travel to go from Cambodia to Vietnam. We might be new to cruising, but enjoy... More
