Riches of Mekong River Cruise Review

“Excellent customer service. Excellent trips. Excellent suites; mine was class B and more than suitable – my balcony was a lovely place to sit and watch the world crawl by during sailing periods. I really loved being aboard the AmaDara so much so I almost didn’t want to get off of it to explore. It was worth it when I did, though.”

Riches of Mekong FAQ

Find answers to some of the most common questions about river cruising here.

Are there any days that passengers won’t be able to disembark?

Day 5 will be spent crossing the border into Vietnam, so unfortunately you will be unable to leave the boat during that time.

What will my suite look like?

All suites aboard the AmaDara include a balcony, writing desk, seating area and large bathroom complete with a bathtub and a shower.

Do I need to pack warm clothes?

That depends on the time of year you’ll be traveling – though its always a good idea to pack for every occasion. We recommend that you google the weather forecast for the places that you plan to visit a few weeks/days in advance so that you can pack accordingly.
