  • JustLuxe: Coasting Along the Mekong on Viking River Cruises' 15-Day Trip

    Since my last three Viking trips were all one-week cruises in Europe, I decided to embark on a 15-day Magnificent Mekong cruise which goes through Vietnam and Cambodia. Initially, I had some reservations about the hassle of a hotel/cruise ship combo and the longer time frame. Plus, this time I wouldn’t be luxuriating on one of their signature Longships. The Viking Mekong, which was specifically built to traverse the “Mother River of Southeast Asia,” is a much smaller wooden ship, accommodating just 56 guests. However, it turned out to be my favorite Viking trip to date.

    My entire cruise career has seen me sailing on cruise ships of all sizes. From the largest ships at sea to the classics that are tiny by today’s standards, so I was intrigued and admittedly nervous about trying out my very first river ship with Viking River. The Viking Lif, which spans a total of four decks and has a tonnage of just a few thousand, would be my very first experience with a ship of this size and on a river. And wow, did I fall in love with her.

    During our seven days on the Mekong in the luxurious 58-passenger French-colonial Viking Mekong riverboat, there were also inspired excursions to take in eye-opening markets full of fish, produce, rats and edible insects; more kids at a traditional riverside village of sheet-metal shacks on stilts; zipping around cities and towns on rickshaws, tuk-tuks and ox carts; playing volleyball with orphans; and tour temples crawling with monkeys.
