We are thrilled to introduce the brand-new deluxe river cruise vessel, Victoria Mekong.
Offering 3-night and 4-night cruising itineraries between Vietnam’s Mekong River and Cambodia’s capital Phnom Penh, with its four-star comfort and superior service, there is no better way to experience the beauty of the Mekong. Shore excursions put you right into the heart of local life and there are plenty of opportunities to interact with local people and their fascinating culture, whilst on-board you’ll sample local heritage through music and dance.
We’ve taken the Victoria Mekong’s innovative 3 night/4 night itineraries and built them into 4 new group tours, with a maximum 18 people per group, and 2 new private tours. Ranging from an introductory tour of the wonders of southern Vietnam and Cambodia to an in-depth journey through Indochina, each itinerary offers the perfect showcase for the treasures of this delightful region.
