RV Mekong Princess Review
Review of RV Mekong Princess
RV Mekong Princess cruise ship is a good choice riverboat for world-class travellers who wish to experience the Mekong River cruising in Cambodia and Vietnam on a top-luxury, yet affordable boat.
The Mekong Princess riverboat has 12 suites that combine the French-colonial style with the comfort of an exclusive Southeast Asian spa. Modern conveniences rival the finest hotels: the well-appointed suites have individual climate control, premium mattresses, duvets, bed linens, passenger's choice of pillows, and boast housekeeping with nightly turndown and daily butler service. Specially-selected, spa bath amenities are offered for the comfort and convenience of all guests. An in-suite, smart HDTV with satellirte reception and Internet (on-demand media / infotainment system) offers classic, popular, and destination-related movies. International print news is delivered on a daily basis.
The indoor Ramvong Lounge is located at the rear of Bassac Deck. Along with the outdoor Observation Deck, it is ideal for relaxing with a cup of coffee, or a cocktail. The sumptuous furnishings of the lounge offer the opportunity to sink in an overstuffed sofa while listening to local guides’ lectures, watching movies, partaking of local spirits, or watching the world go by in temperature-controlled atmosphere. Local entertainment may be offered on selected evenings.
Breakfast and lunch on the riverboat are served buffet-style, with various Asian and Western dishes. The multi-course dinners are all paired with wine, and provide a selection of healthy, local dishes and Western favourites.
The small Princess Fitness Center onboard RV Mekong Princess provides modern equipment in a cosy atmosphere, with floor-to-ceiling windows so passengers may exercise without missing the precious views of the splendid Mekong River scenery. Daily Tai Chi, yoga and meditation classes are offered in the gym or on ship's Bassac Deck. Each guest aboard RV Mekong Princess receives a free, one-hour spa treatment at the Princess Spa on the Mekong Deck during the cruise.
The currency onboard is USD ($). Vietnamese Dong is also accepted. English is the official language onboard, and daily shore excursions with English speaking guides in each destination are included in the tour program.
Laptops and cell phones run on the entire route but overseas communications are too expensive. In case of emergency, it is possible to use the cell phone of the ship. WIFI is available in the main lounge and the library.
