A little disappointed

Review for La Marguerite to Asia River

I had read very good reviews about this boat but found I was a little disappointed. It could possibly be that we went at the wrong time of year as the Mekong was very low and getting on and off the boat was an ordeal at times. The crew had to dig out steps in the muddy banks or put cardboard on the damp mud (an accident waiting to happen, gladly I didn't hear of anyone having one). During one ...

This cruise was part of a 12 day holiday of which 7 nights were on La Marguerite. We booked on a fly free cabin upgrade so decided to splurge and book the largest suite. Huge king bed, shame about the dark platform that it sat on as I have an enormous bruise... I took to placing something white on it to remind myself it was there! The cabin was huge with excellent storage and housekeeping were ...

From the start of the trip in Siam Reap to the last night in Saigon we couldn't fault a thing. The organisation of all the trips was spot on and Mau, our Cambodian guide was excellent. He is so enthusiastic and knowledgeable with a smile that could light up any room. That isn't to say that the Vietnamese guides weren't very good, they were. The ship was very nice with a decent sized cabin and ...

Before booking this kind of holiday please make sure it is for you. If it is what you want it is great, if not you could very well be disappointed. My husband and I cruised on La Marguerite 9-16 September 2014. Our first disappointment was that we in our mid 50s were the youngest on board. On booking we had asked about ages and told it was mixed, but most were 70+. The ship is very nice, but not a ...

My Husband and I have just returned from a wonderful land tour of Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia which included an overnight stay on a Junk in Halong Bay and a 7 night cruise down the Mekong on the ‘La Marguerite’ I am a compulsive note taker and write a diary for my own enjoyment but record practical information too for future reference. I have some mobility problems so was not able to access all ...

It may be worth noting that the author of these comments travels mainly to see other cultures up close, secondly to meet new people and lastly to see 'things and places'. After experiencing and seeing that the main tourist tracks in China used by big tour operators are almost totally westernized we decided to make our 'last ever' cruise down the Mekong in hopes that some of the old Asian culture ...

Having traveled independently all over the world, in a Rick Steves kind of a way, I'm nearing 60, and traveling solo now and thought this would be a good way to see Vietnam and Cambodia. It was PERFECT for me. There were a.m. and p.m. tours, breaks for meals and air conditioning, first class accommodations throughout, and staff willing to bend over backwards to attend to your wishes. Taking the ...

I was not sure about this trip....once we got into our embarkation point - we were told that Mekong river was too low and we had to take a bus to another point on the river...3 hrs later our bus gets a mechanical....it is hot, we are tired and no place to go....but after using a hammer in the most effective way, the bus driver got on its way. Necessity is the mother of invention! La Margarite is ...

2Fltravelers (see above) have written extensively about this cruise. They should be praised for their level of detail. If you are expecting Crystal Cruises or Oceania or the Queen Mary 2, please book a different cruise. The Marguerite has everything that you could hope for in a small, river-going vessel. What--no big-named comedian or a stage show re-creation of "Phantom"? You'll be too ...

We recently completed the September 13, 2011, 15-day AMA Waterways La Marguerite land and cruise package from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), Vietnam. I had clients on this cruise, and they had asked if we would like to accompany them. Of course the answer was a resounding "Yes!" Day 1 - We flew from LAX, arriving in Hanoi at 9:30 a.m. (after 17 hours in the air). I had previously obtained ...
