Perfect. Beautiful spacious cabin with balcony. Modern shower room (new welcome products, bathrobe, slippers). The boat is well designed, well maintained and clean. The restoration is exceptional (tasty, choice, variety, beautiful presentation).

Great way to see the Mekong. The cruise director is fabulous and attentive and the daily outings are a fantastic way to see local life including night rides in Tuk Tuks, rickshaw rides and ox cart rides. You really get to see local life in these developing countries. The only downsides for me were the overuse of fish sauce in the meals including salads. Ice creams on board would have been nice. Be careful if you are mobility impaired as the boat has no lift, some of the excursions alight on to rough muddy river banks with steep climbs and some of the temples visited have a lot of steps.
