Discover Vietnam and Cambodia Cruise Review

“We had a fantastic holiday, and our experiences were more than we could have hoped for. They were all fantastic, from the tour manager to the guides to the staff on board. The cabins were a good size, and we loved the wood interior. The food is excellent. If you are considering this cruise, then book it – you will enjoy it. We loved it!”
