Viking Mekong Review

Review of Viking Mekong

RV Viking Mekong ship cruises on Mekong River in Vietnam and Cambodia, departing from homeports Saigon and Hanoi. Viking Mekong (brand name for the Pandaw Cruises-owned riverboat RV Mekong Pandaw) is a handcrafted vessel, designed specifically to navigate the remote waterways of Mekong River. Last refurbished in 2013, the ship can accommodate max 60 passengers. It offers magnificent river views from every stateroom due to the large windows and open-deck space. The atmosphere onboard is extraordinarily friendly with English-speaking crew. The sights, flavours and sounds of one of the most fascinating places in the world are unforgettable.
