Motion Sickness is a common issue for travelers during their cruise at the sea, but on Mekong River, it is usually not the case. Wave is almost non-existent and cruises are designed to be steady and built with modern technology as well.

We have not recorded any complaint regarding seasickness on cruises in the great Mekong, however, the staffs onboard will support you as best as they can in case it happens.


Passengers on a Mekong Cruise can expect to be served with a good selection of cuisine. Most are French, South East Asia, and local Cuisine. In terms of wine, different labels come from many parts in the world. Ingredients on cruises must meet the high standard and collected from multiple destinations like Australia Beef, lamb from New Zealand, and all fruits and vegetables in Myanmar. 


We strongly advise travelers on the Mekong River Cruises to purchase trip cancellation insurance, which will reimburse the cost of air tickets and other non-refundable trip payments. International medical, baggage loss, and delay insurance are also recommended.


For safety reasons, our passengers are required to be with one of our guides whenever they are on land during our Mekong River cruises. We do however actively encourage our guests to consider pre- and post-cruise travel around Cambodia and Vietnam. Our team will be happy to share our recommendations for these independent explorations.


If you have special dietary requests, we strongly recommend that you inform us at the time of booking, or at least by 30 days prior to embarkation. Every effort will be made to cater to special dietary needs, and to accommodate special requests, subject to a given product’s availability in Vietnam and Cambodia.
