Cruising the Captivating World of Cambodia & Vietnam

Pulsing through the heart of Vietnam and Cambodia, the Mekong River provides a lifeline for millions of people. Along this vibrant “Mother of Water,” scenes of everyday life will mesmerize you—from fishermen hauling in their daily catch to chanting monks to boats crisscrossing the river. Cruise the massive Mekong Delta, meet with smiling schoolchildren, see skilled silversmiths at work, and partake in a traditional water blessing ceremony with area monks. Explore French-influenced Phnom Penh, take a walking tour of Ho Chi Minh City, marvel at spectacular Angkor Wat in Siem Reap, and relish other fascinating activities. By the end of your journey, you will have a better understanding of life along the river and the friendly people who depend on it. Our Certified Local Guides welcome you to share the beautiful landscapes and cultural traditions along the Mekong.

Graceful River. Gracious Service.

An Adventure in Luxury

Leading the way in luxury expeditions on the Mekong River, our award-winning Suite Ship® carry just 36 guests for a more exclusive experience. While the maximum number of guests may be small, our ships are not. Built as long and wide as other ships that carry twice as many guests, the public spaces never feel congested. Explore Southeast Asia in locales other river cruises cannot reach — all the while enjoying Avalon’s signature relaxed luxury on board. From the air-conditioned Panorama Lounge to the open-air observation lounge, there is plenty of seating and spots to relax. Plus, our lounges are located at the front of the ship, not the back, so no matter where you sit, you’ll always have a great view.
