En route, experience the many threads of the vibrant tapestry of the Mekong riverscapes through a variety of excursions. Shop like a local at the floating markets, discover the delta's history at a cultural museum, and get a taste of Mekong life with visits to cake makers, pottery studios and a plum wine farm.
Victoria Mekong offers passengers a uniquely elegant small-ship experience, with passengers invited to make use of the onboard spa, library, games room, infinity pool and two bars. As the ship makes its way downriver, enjoy cocktail making demonstrations, cultural lectures, classical Apsara performances and lion dances, and while away your evenings in the ship's infinity pool as the sun sets over the delta before retiring to your beautiful stateroom. All 35 cabins have mini-safes, Wi-Fi access, private balconies and premium mattresses for a peaceful night's sleep.
Board the Victoria Mekong at Sisowath Quay, close to Wat Phom in Phnom Penh. After a welcome briefing, you will cast off into the waters of the Mekong Delta. Relax with a sundowner on deck, and sit down to a gala dinner whilst enjoying a traditional Cambodian apsara performance on board.
Sail towards the border, passing into Vietnam in the early afternoon. Spend a relaxed morning enjoying the passing scenery and a wealth of onboard activities, such as a cultural lecture and cocktail making.
