With a design reminiscent of the French Colonial–era manor homes that once lined the streets of Old Saigon, the all-suite Mekong Navigator features a sophisticated and comfortable ambience. This beautiful ship—a new addition to the fleet in 2017—carries no more than 68 guests, assuring gracious and attentive service from their impeccably- trained staff. Every suite is a beautiful and tranquil retreat, a blend of timeless elegance and modern conveniences and luxuries. Public areas include the inviting Le Salon Lounge with full-service bar on the Sun Deck, La Bibliothèque Library & Internet Lounge, the Observation Lounge, Le Marché Restaurant, and the La Vie Spa and Fitness Centre.
Kindly inform them in advance if you have specific dietary requests (e.g. low-fat, low-calorie, gluten-free, sugar-free, vegetarian, etc.). They have a “Traveling Lite” menu for guests seeking more health-conscious options, as well as light lunches, vegetarian options, and generous buffets that offer something for everyone. They will do their very best to accommodate your needs given the resources available to them.
It’s best to pack for a range of weather conditions, depending on the season and regions visited. Wearing layers will allow you to easily adjust to temperature changes. Limiting your wardrobe to a simple mix-and-match colour scheme will keep your bags to a minimum.
They recommend wearing comfortable, smart-casual clothing both onshore and onboard. They also suggest sturdy walking shoes, as you will do a significant amount of walking on shore excursions, often over cobblestones or uneven terrain. A sun hat, rain gear, and a coat or wrap for chilly evenings are useful items to have. For dining ashore, concerts, special events onboard, etc., men may want to bring a sports jacket and women a cocktail dress or pantsuit. Neckties are optional. Please note that shorts are not allowed at dinner aboard the ship.
In their experience, most young children—especially those under 4—are simply not yet old enough to enjoy river cruising. They make no special arrangements for little ones and offer very few kid-friendly activities onboard or onshore. Children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult 21 or older at all times.
