Great Itinerary, Lovely Ship

| Vietnam and Cambodia.
The staterooms were spacious and very comfortable. The carved woodwork around the ship was beautiful, and the public rooms (lounges and dining rooms) were a perfect setting for relaxing. The food, from the breakfast and lunch buffets to the multi-course dinners, provided a wide range of cuisines, from Asian to Western specialties. All in all, it was a rich and culturally rewarding cruise.

AmaDara - Wonderful Experience

| Cambodia and Vietnam
This was our first small ship cruise and our first experience with AmaWaterways. AMA exceeded our expectations and we would highly recommend this cruise company. Service was exceptional. Food was very good and we the dishes reflected the region that we were visiting. Ship was very clean and well organized.

Amazing cruise

| Cambodia and Vietnam
This was an amazing experience and we are eager to use AMA for future travels. Also our local travel agency could not gave served us better. There connection to AMA really made our journey the trip of a life time. 

Vietnam & the Mekong Delta

| Vietnam & Cambodia
Nice trip!!

Great trip

| Cambodia
the ship was very nice.

Cambodia/Vietnam

| Cambodia/Vietnam
I would consider doing this trip again. Would like to spend more time at temples at Angor.

Vietnam & Cambodia - Siem Reap to Ho Chi Minh City

| Vietnam & Cambodia
An exciting experience and a well organized trip.

Mekong River Cruise

| Vietnam and Cambodia.
Beds are not comfortable, No room service if you would like to order breakfast or a coffee. No pots in the room. Food is only served at certain times. Pool isn't much of a pool. Drink consists of certain wines and select beers and well drinks. Entertainment is very limited. Excursions are very similar. Lots of shrines and Buddhist temples pretty much.

Lovely Trip!

| Vietnam and Cambodia
I would definitely recommend AmaWaterways - AmaDara to see Vietnam and Cambodia. I would recommend being fully rested before you board (especially if you coming from far away like the US) as the schedule is packed tight and you really don't want to miss anything. The crew was great and the rooms were quite comfortable. Would definitely do another river cruise with AmaWaterways.

Mekong Delta

| Vietnam, Cambodia, Mekong Delta, Sim Reap
Purchased the massage/manicure package. Massage was very good, but the manicure was quite unsatisfactory. Used wrong color on one hand, had to remove, and nails not dry when I left, so it was flawed. Your wait staff was very good. The specialty restaurant was also good, but waitstaff spent considerable time zapping the bugs that entered the room thru an open window. Never saw so many bugs a one time. It was also amusing to watch the staff zapping the bugs.

Vietnam & Cambodia

| Vietnam & Cambodia
It helped me to appreciate home and for what I have. The simple thing as running water. I have taken for granted. it exceeded my expectations. I enjoyed unpacking once. I liked the pace of the tours. One in the morning, lunch, then another tour in the afternoon. The guides were very knowledgeable and friendly. In the heat they managed to smile. The colored signs were very helpful. They were there making sure you got on/off the bus/boat okay. Returning to the boat you were greeted with smiles, cold water and towel. They always answered my questions. Service with a smile. Cappuccino at 6 am. Too much good food. I came home and I was missing the Pho :( . I had to make my own breakfast.! Someday I would like to revisit when it is cooler. The heat at times was too much for me.

A great way to see Vietnam and Cambodia

| Vietnam & Cambodia
We did the land and river cruise parts of this tour, and I would encourage anyone to do the same. Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, and Siem Reap are all really interesting, and then traveling on the ship gives you an excellent perspective on how the people live. We learned so much about the culture, the history, the religion and the people. It was wonderful.

History and Culture of Vietnam and Cambodia

| Viet Nam and Cambodia
We wanted something different and that is what we got. We participated in the pre and post AMA activities. The accommodations were magnificent - two 5-Star hotels and the other including the Ha Long Bay boat were extremely nice. Visiting third world countries is a first for us, although clearly Saigon and Hanoi had some very first world accommodations. As did Siem Reap. Visiting villages and homes of the locals was most interesting. Visiting a school and seeing the very happy and excited students was a highlight. Hearing about (learning about) the very recent battles including the one the US was involved in was enlightening. I got a better appreciation of John McCain who is revered in Saigon.

Viet Nam/Cambodia Trip

| VietNam and Cambodia including a river cruise on the Mekong River during February and March 2017
We had a terrific experience with AmaWaterays. Our trip guide/coordinator, Long, was outstanding and watched out for the needs of everyone and went out of his way to assist tour participants. Our daily excursions were well planned and local guides provided excellent commentary and guidance. Accommodations on the river cruise as well as the land part of the trip were also outstanding. This was our first experience with Ama but certainly not our last!!!

Mekong River Cruise

| Cambodia/Vietnam
Thang the Tour Manager was outstanding! He catered to all, was very flexible and accomodating. He even assisted our friends who had to layover a few days in Saigon another five days after the tour. Exceptional services!

Vietnam

| Siem Reap, Mekong River, Hanoi
The ship was beautiful and set the mood of being in Southeast Asia.
