The first luxury four-star cruise ship to connect the two cities of Can Tho (Vietnam) and Phnom Penh (Cambodia) is a four-deck cruise ship equipped with state-of-the-art facilities. The ship has 33 deluxe cabins and two VIP suites, and also features a restaurant with a 360-degree view on the upper deck as well as shopping stores, spas, libraries and cinemas.

Passengers departing from Ho Chi Minh City who want to take the riverboat tour will be transported by vehicles to Can Tho, where they can then catch the Can Tho to Phnom Penh cruise ship.

Vo Xuan Thu, General Director of Victoria Can Tho Resort said that a Mekong cruise from Viet Nam to Cambodia is the best way to see the cultural diversity between the two regions. During the tour, passengers will enjoy circus performances, lion dances, traditional Khmer dances and folk music performances of the Mekong Delta region.

The Victoria Mekong cruise ship, which was launched on August 31, is operated by Victoria Mekong Cruises Company, a joint venture between Thien Minh Group and Wendy Wu Tours, the UK’s leading Asia tour specialist. Prices start from VND21 million (US$906) for the tour (three to four nights), including meals and beverages on board.
