Essential Vietnam and Cambodia Cruise Review

“Amazing. The on-board experience is incomparable, room service was amazing, wait-staff friendly, tour guide informative and many others i’m forgetting to mention. The on-board entertainment was constant, inclusive and lovely. Off-board tours were well organised; there was a lot of travelling to be done, but the time was well-utilised and no day was wasted.”

Gabby Armstrong, Leeds
