The ship is well-appointed, and the meals are of great quality, but it is the staff who have left us with memories that will last a lifetime. The rooms are tended by competent and nice individuals. The tour instructors are knowledgeable about flowers, and the trip's speed is enjoyable for everyone.… More

We went on a tour that began in Siem Reap and was lodged at Shinta Mani Resort upon arrival before embarking on the cruise.
The itinerary goes flawlessly from start to finish, with excellent guides, well-paced excursions, highly comfortable buses, and safe riverboats. RV La Marguerite concludes the journey with an excellent overall experience.

Could not fault any part of the cruise package. It was excellent, exactly what we were looking for.

In regard to the entertainment and activities, the shore excursion and information presentations onboard were good, but the onboard musician was poor.
