CroisiEurope and the Mekong


A lot of our readers here at World of Cruising are keen on river cruising. The Mekong may have been pushed slightly to the back of the shelf with the Irrawaddy opening up but it's still a great place to go and see.  CroisiEurope  has four charming colonial-style vessels which cruise along the Mekong between Cambodia and Vietnam. All the vessels sail from Siem Reap to Saigon via Phnom Penh (or vice versa), from August to April.

Highlights of these cruises include:

  • A four-star vessel that combines charm and comfort and is completely panelled in tropical hardwood
  • Discovering the Khmer temples at the site of Angkor
  • Bustling Saigon
  • The French colonial charm of Phnom Penh
  • The turbulent life of floating villages, Lake Tonle Sap and the discovery of the fish farms on the Mekong delta
  • A beautifully emotive cruise full of colour.
The fleet:
The RV Indochine: 48 passengers with 24 cabins
The RV Lan Diep: 44 passengers with 22 cabins
The RV Tioum Tou 1: 20 passengers with 10 cabins
The RV Tioum Tou 2: 28 passengers with 14 cabins
