Cultural Immersion at its' finest by ken53271331

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group

This cruise is more of a cultural immersion and can be very educational vs a luxury European river cruise. Everything is still five star but reflects this part of the world. The culture is rich and the people are friendly and happy. There are parts that are emotional and disturbing, such as the killing fields in Cambodia and the Vietnam War related parts, but it is an amazing opportunity to learn about this part of history and bond with the people that share their stories of these tragedies. If you want high-end luxury, stick to the European river tours provided by AMA. If you want an exciting adventure and an opportunity to meet some amazing people that have endured and are growing and thriving, then this is the cruise for you.

Memorable Mekong Cruise by Twotravellers

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We loved our cruise on the Amadara. This cruise is a great introduction to Vietnam and Cambodia. It was a great blend of history, culture and shopping. I enjoyed seeing both cities and the countryside. Visiting a local school and interacting with the children was priceless. Our guides were fantastic and all the excursions ran seamlessly.

Vietnam and Cambodia by Thoman

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We had a wonderful time on our Mekong River cruise, and AMA Waterways was just great.    We had taken a Viking last year to China and this one was even better than Viking.    We enjoyed the luxury but at the same time, the destinations were very interesting.    The crew was very responsive, warm, and greeting all the time.   This trip can be a bit tiring if you are not prepared for that.    There are a lot of things to see and you need to be able to do a lot of walking, and climbing if you want to experience it the most.    We loved it, and we met some very memorable friends on this trip that we will keep in touch with forever.   Overall, unless you have an aversion to seeing Vietnam, this is a beautiful place, and the people are very welcoming.   64% of the population is 35 years or younger, and they do not like their government either.   Hopefully one day they will be more free, but they are making great strides in their well being.    Cambodia was also very interesting, and they are having more issues of rebuilding but are also improving.  Just a great trip!
