Our introduction to Vietnam was interesting and educational with our tour to the Cu Chi’s tunnels and a visit to the city of Saigon followed the next day to transfer to our ship.
Everything about this cruise was excellent. The slide down window turned our stateroom into our private balcony where we could enjoy life on the Mekong River as we sailed along. The dining experience was wonderful with an amazing variety of food and some good old stand byes for the less adventurous diners.
The lounges allowed space for visiting and smaller cozy lounges were available to curl up with a book and a cup of tea or coffee.
The entertainment brought on board with young people sharing the traditional dances of the region was excellent. It was good to hear that Emerald is supporting organizations helping disadvantaged youth.
The excursions were very interesting showing history of the regions and daily life.
Service throughout the ship was excellent from the front staff, the cruise director, our group leader, the spa staff, dining room servers, room attendants etc.
We look forward to another adventure in the future with Emerald Waterways.
Excellent! We were so delighted with our “balcony cabin”.
