A magnificent presence on the Mekong river, Aqua Mekong showcases modern architecture and interiors by renowned architect Noor Design. The Mekong river cruise ship’s 20 spacious, air-conditioned suites feature full-length windows that offer spectacular panoramas of the ever-changing Mekong scenery. Aqua Mekong also received the coveted Gold Award in the Architecture/New Build category in the 2015 Asia Hotel Design Awards.
As the Aqua Mekong charts a luxurious passage across Cambodia and Vietnam, on-board guests embark on an inspired journey of local flavors with a dining experience crafted by Michelin-starred consulting chef David Thompson. The ship’s bar menu, created by renowned spirit experts and cocktail designers Proof & Co, echoes a similar locally-minded philosophy.
Aqua Mekong guarantees utmost safety, comfort and exclusivity for off-shore excursions, as Aqua Expeditions owns and operates the only private fleet of launch boats on the Mekong river. The four ergonomically-designed launch boats bring guests on highly personalized day trips to landmarks, temples and villages where tradition, spirituality and craftsmanship reside.
Guests on board the Aqua Mekong discover the region’s cuisine beyond the plate. Aside from on-board cooking demonstrations, guests can follow our chefs to bustling local markets as they procure the finest produce, from freshly-caught Mekong river catfish to newly-harvested Asian greens, for the day’s meals. Coconut, lemongrass, coriander and turmeric are just a few of the most recognizable flavors our guests can expect on chef Thompson’s inventive yet authentic seasonal menus.

We had such a wonderful time on the LAN Diep (CF Mekong Luxury River Cruise). It was the trip of a lifetime. The staff was excellent: friendly and professional. The food was excellent. The tours were excellent. Lidy was amazing. So knowledgeable. She always went the extra mile to make things wonderful. Narott was very good too. He was especially knowledgeable about the Buddhist temples that we went to. Bao was amazing too. He was everything special you would want in a tour guide. We loved having him guide us on the Mekong and in SAigon. It was absolutely amazing having our own private guide (and sometimes a driver). We felt like celebrities! A special mention of the Cu Chi tunnels - they should be on everyone’s list. They are definitely worth the trip. Thanks again. I will be sure to recommend your cruise ship to others.
We travelled on the RV Amalotus with APT. The cruise was delightful, ship was very well maintained, clean and the staff and tour guides first class. Your cabins were very roomy and well set out. Meals were 5 star all the time. One thing that stands out, the ships staff look after you 24/7, before you start a tour you are well briefed the night before and any other information is presented in your daily news letter, (just like a sea cruise). One tip, if you can't handle very hot and humid weather think twice in going.
This was the first time we had ever been on a cruise, well the whole package was amazing. We were spoilt, looked after and wanted for nothing. The crew were so very friendly and couldn't do enough for you. Both my husband and I are disabled and knew We would not be able to do every tour from the onset. Some of the disembarkation sites were very basic. But we loved the fact that the other passengers would find us out and tell us about the things they had seen in a friendly and informative way. When we did the land visits everyone, crew and passengers were so helpful. It was so much fun and so interesting to be educated in a different way of life. The guides went over the top to inform you. The food , well it was so good and again the crew couldn't do enough. The waiters soon realised I was uncomfortable sat at the table and so they provided a cushion for my back for every meal. For those who want it there is Wi-Fi everywhere on board other than when we were somewhere remote. I found that the whole ship became family, we all liked out for each other and the whole experience was first class. 5+* to the Amadara
Wow Wow is all I can say we loved every minute of our 7 day cruise onboard the Aqua Mekong Boat.
