We spent a night on the Bassac and loved it! The meals were well prepared, staff attentive and the cabins very clean and comfortable. May I suggest you wake up for the sunrise as it was the most beautiful and peaceful part of the day

I would like to let you know that we very much enjoyed the cruise, the meals, cabin, tour leader and concept with the exclusions etc. I have never tasted food like it our cabins were so comfy we both slept so very well, our guide was so lovely and the friendliness from every crew member and drivers etc was genuine... the only criticism I would have is the time it takes to get their and back from Ho Chi Minh 3 hours there and 2 1/2 back and the fact that if we had known that we would be boarding at lunchtime then getting off the boat early the next day we probably would have booked the longer cruise, we so enjoyed everything,
