With a sun deck lounge area in the front, a 10 table and 40 seat areas in the middle, and a bar and sitting area in the back, you will certainly enjoy a very comfortable and relaxing time during the cruise. With a different lunch served onboard each day of your journey, you will experience and discover authentic Lao cuisine. The crew, formed by an experienced captain, an engineer, a cook, a waiter and an English speaking tour guide, does its best to make this Mekong cruise unique.
