About the ship: Previous passengers say "cruising the Mekong in this small ship is like being on the Orient Express except you are afloat". Each Superior Stateroom is individually decorated and features a balcony. This intimate ship features just 27 rooms and has a spa, a sun deck (where you can treat yourself to a traditional massage) and a 1930s-style restaurant.
