Viking Saigon Review

Review of Viking Saigon

RV Viking Saigon ship cruises on Mekong River (in Vietnam and Cambodia) departing from homeports Saigon Vietnam and Kampong Cham Cambodia (bus travel to Siem Reap, flight to Hanoi). Viking Saigon is a modern-designed and handcrafted vessel designed to safely navigate Lower Mekong River. Viking Saigon's fleetmate deployed in the Cambodia-Vietnam region is the 2002-built RV Viking Mekong (brand name for the chartered from Pandaw Cruises riverboat "Mekong Pandaw").

The newbuild riverboat Viking Saigon has max passenger capacity 80 (plus 35 staff-crew). It offers magnificent riverside views from every stateroom due to the large windows and plenty of open-deck space. The atmosphere onboard is extraordinarily friendly, with exceptional service provided by professionally trained English-speaking crew. The sights, flavours and sounds of one of the most fascinating places in the world are unforgettable.

The shipbuilder is VARD Vietnam - a subsidiary of the Italian shipbuilding company Fincantieri. The vessel is currently under construction at VARD's shipyard in Vung Tau (Vietnam).
