Aqua Mekong Cruise

Lower Mekong – Luxury Cruise

Five Star Mekong River Cruises aboard the Aqua Mekong

Taking lucky passengers on a journey into Vietnam and Cambodia along the mighty Mekong River to Chinese wing-tipped pagoda temples and remote Buddhist monasteries, the 62.4 meter (205 feet) Aqua Mekong was designed by Saigon-based architects at Noor Design to embody the aesthetic of a sophisticated five star hotel.

Using local sustainable materials and artisanal touches of the Mekong’s multifaceted cultures to round out her generous interior spaces, the vessel won a PURE Design Award in 2014 upon her launch and offers guests the utmost comforts on board, as well as exciting off shore excursions along this fascinating river.

The Aqua Mekong can accommodate a maximum of 40 cruise ship guests plus crew on exciting itineraries of 4, 5 and 8 days duration. The vessel's twenty oversized suites, feature ensuite sitting areas and generous floor-to-ceiling, outward-facing picture-windows with panoramic Mekong river views. Cruising Asia’s Mekong River between Vietnam and Cambodia, this floating five-star hotel has 20 designer suites, each sustainably crafted, beautifully decorated, air-conditioned and measure a whopping 322 square feet – the river’s largest guestrooms.

For the ultimate luxury, passengers may book interconnecting suites, with one suite configured as a private living room, the other a master bedroom, and his-and-hers baths. The result is your own private, 60 square meter (640 square foot) apartment on the Mekong. Alternatively, this is a great option for families too. 

This is the only ship on this stretch of the river to offer a fully equipped gym, screening room, outdoor cinema, observation deck, and an upper-deck pool. Dine on world-class dishes created by top Southeast Asian cuisine chef, David Thompson and board the Mekong’s only private tenders for expert-guided shore excursions to serene Buddhist temples and stilted villages or explore the unique landscape by bicycle.

Spacious and indulgent, yet intimate enough to feel entirely exclusive, the Aqua Mekong incorporates relaxed yet refined lounging and dining areas, and her modern navigation technologies and the highest cruise ship standards as well as our experienced river pilot and crew ensure smooth travel and safety on the water.  The crew are also extremely accommodating and friendly, offering excellent service, and with a guide to guest ratio of 1 to 10 you are sure to get a personalised experience. A full-time paramedic ensures guest safety on every adventure.

These cruises are extremely popular and get booked up quickly, so please contact us for the latest availability. If there is no availability on the Aqua Mekong, fear not, as its equally luxurious sister-ship, the Aria Amazon sailing the Amazon may do!

This was our second cruise with Aqua Expeditions so we enjoyed their Loyalty Program benefits of room upgrade and a nice surprise of complimentary massages. We sailed previously on their Peruvian Amazon cruise. We were so impressed we had to try another.
