This was a fantastic river cruise. The boat, Siem Reap, is all suite cabins with a max of 36 people and a crew of 26, so we were pampered the whole 7 days. Food was fantastic and alcoholic beverages and fruit juices were all included. Our tour direct - Phiem - was one of the very best I have had.... More

We travelled from Kampong Chamin Cambodia down to Ho Chi Minh City (with a diversion to Kampong Chnnang) and loved every minute of it. The river is fascinating, supporting so many people, so many boats of different types, floating villages and markets and wildlife. It was truly a priviledge to get an insight into people's lives and the countries.

Travelled South through Cambodia and Vietnam stopping off to visit local places of interest. It was one of the best trips we have experienced, the guides were so informative showing us how everyday life is lived on the Mekong Delta as well as the most famous landmarks. The boat was fantastic , staff wonderful, nothing was too much trouble and... More

We joined the boat in Phnom Penh so only had the 3 nights aboard. The cruise - the ship is very nicely decked out and the travel was very pleasant. Plenty of space to find a seat without feeling on top of others. The Mekong is fairly vibrant especially once in Vietnam with lots of colour, boats and peoples lots... More

Overall I would recommend this ship, with two exceptions. Pros - It was a small ship, with only 26 cabins. The cabins were large and very well appointed. For a cruise ship, the bathroom, particularly the shower, was enormous. The public areas were very attractive and tastefully decorated. The tour guides in both Vietnam and Cambodia were knowledgeable and excellent,... More

My wife and I completed the journey from Phnom Penh to Ho CHI Min city and thoroughly enjoyed the journey. The crew are very obliging, and as previously stated the food is rich in variety and should please the most fastidious. Safety is taken seriously in all aspects of the cruise and tours. A very nice touch is the CD... More

Just completed a 7 day cruise on the Meekong river from Saigon to Siem Reap It is difficult to add anything original to previous reports , other than to repeat that the service and staff are truly excellent . The heritage line are a top drawer company offering a great product. It is always wrong to single people out but... More

Fantastic week afloat, but note the advertised itinerary is for "High Water", so instead of starting in Siem Reap we actually took a bus for the first 180km. If you want the High water programme you will have to do this in the rainy season. Food and crew were fantastic as were the daily excursions. This was our first river... More

The vessel is well appointed and fully air conditioned. The service on board was terrific, meals very good with an abundant choice for all meals. Includes multiple choices... More

Our Cruise director Mr Tu is a gem. Every aspect of this Travel Marvel experience has been conducted with absolute professional precision. The ship is very well appointed and the meals are high quality but it is the crew that have left us with memories we will cherish for a long time.
