Every so often, we come across a river cruise itinerary that changes our perception of what to expect from a luxury river cruise. The Mekong River Cruises for 2020 from APT are the perfect example of how luxury river cruises will be redefined.
Why are we so excited about the APT Mekong River Cruises for 2020?
Firstly, the cruises from October 2020 will take place on the most luxurious ship currently operating on the Mekong river.
Secondly, it’s one of the most intimate and tailored river cruises around as the RV AmaMekong can only host up to 88 guests at a time. With only 44 suits on board, it offers some of the largest suites on the Mekong.
Thirdly, there is no better Mekong cruise for food on and off the ship. You can look forward to all-inclusive gourmet food and drinks on board. Luke Nguyen is a well-known chef in Australia and wider Asia who has worked very closely with APT putting together outstanding gourmet dishes that will be one of the highlights of your river cruise holiday. The personal touch and eye for detail is truly remarkable.
If that wasn’t enough, you will also benefit from a private VIP door-to-door chauffeur transfer (mileage limited) as well as experience signature tours in Vietnam and Cambodia including watching the sun rise at Angkor Wat which is a once in a lifetime experience. And if you prefer to take it more slowly, then you have a range of “freedom of choice” experiences available to you.
