Vietnam – Mekong River Cruise
Global Cycling Adventures is now offering a luxury expedition cruise of the Mekong River in Southeast Asia. The five-star small luxury cruise ship sails the Mekong River between the Mekong Delta in Vietnam and the Kingdom of Cambodia. The vessel oozes understated elegance, with polished wood floors and a neutral color scheme that incorporates local fabrics and materials.
Passengers can expect to be pampered in total comfort with an extraordinary 1:1 passenger-to-crew ratio and menu created by a Michelin-starred chef. The ship’s 20 cabins, all 322 square feet with panoramic windows, are divided equally between the first and second decks. On each deck, there are four with balconies and six cabins without. The balcony suites have outside daybeds, and non-balcony cabins have inside daybeds. All cabins feature king-sized beds that can be converted into twins, flat-screen TVs, iPod docking stations, air-conditioning, rainwater showerheads and organic bathroom products.
Australian-born Michelin-starred chef David Thompson produces the menu for the cruise. David is Asia’s top-ranked chef on the San Pellegrino World’s 50 Best Restaurants’ list. Meals are served in the dining room on the second deck, dishes reflect local culinary traditions and feature seasonal ingredients.
The observation deck boasts bow and stern outdoor lounges with sun loungers and a canopy, as well as an indoor lounge area and bar. The observation deck can also be used for private film screenings for up to 10 people, and the ship has a library of movies featuring the region. Other amenities include a library, shop and spa treatment rooms, each with single and double massage beds. The vessel also has an onboard paramedic. Ten bicycles are provided free of charge for passengers who want to explore independently ashore.
The cruise operates three-, four- and seven-night cruises embarking from Siem Reap, Phnom Penh and Ho Chi Minh City. Fares include all meals and drinks — soft drinks, house wine and beer — excursions and transfers to and from the vessel.
