After having travelled a lot around South East Asia on the Vegan Food Quest, we have come to love this part of the world and all it can offer to the vegan traveller. So it’ll come as no surprise that the aptly named ‘Vietnam, Cambodia and the Riches of the Mekong’ river cruise, from award winning luxury river cruise operator AmaWaterways, sparked our interest.
The AmaDara Mekong cruise on the the RV AmaDara, the newest addition to the AmaWaterways fleet, was 8 days in duration and we were more than intrigued by the thought of taking such a long journey by river, all the way from Siem Reap in Cambodia to Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam.
We boarded with excitement but like all vegan travellers we wondered if they would they be able to organise vegan food for us? Because if they couldn’t, it was going to be a long 8 days…
Our cabin was compact but seemed to offer a great amount of space with an outside balcony (a key feature of the ship is that all rooms have their own outside space) and inside seating area as well as the huge bed. There was plenty of space to explore on the ship including a lounge area, library, outside pool area, sundeck and gym (OK we lied, we didn’t explore the gym).
