Review of Viking Mekong

The Viking Mekong boat cruises on Mekong River in Vietnam and Cambodia, departing from Saigon and Hanoi.

Viking Mekong is a handcrafted river ship, designed specifically to navigate the remote areas of Mekong River. Last refurbished in 2013, the Mekong river ship can accommodate up to 60 guests. It offers magnificent river views from every stateroom due to the large windows and deck space. The atmosphere on board is extraordinarily friendly with English-speaking crew. The sights, flavors and sounds of one of the most fascinating places in the world are unforgettable.

The beautiful Sun deck features comfortable shaded sitting area. Have your dinner in the restaurant while watching the panoramic river views, or rest in the bar and library.
