The cruise had two nights in Pnom Pehn but on the second night we were anchored in the middle of the river so could not go ashore. Considering that was the biggest city on the cruise, that was disappointing.

As we have not travelled on other cruises on the Mekong, we can only comment on our Pandaw cruise. We saw other cruise ships on the river and we feel that our Pandaw Cruise, on the 'RV Bassac Pandaw', was the best designed boat on the Mekong. We were very lucky as there were only 24 people on the cruise.… More
