This new ship is Scenic's first purpose-built one on the Mekong River. And the ship itself is gorgeous: picture lots of gleamingly polished dark wood, floor-to-ceiling windows, and flowers — including exquisitely arranged orchids and lotus blossoms — everywhere.
At 68 passengers, it’s smaller than the line’s European vessels, but it is still one of the biggest vessels plying this river from Cambodia to Vietnam. Onboard, there's a gorgeous dining room; a lovely pool; a small spa with two massage rooms, a sauna, and a steam room; a gym; a library; a lounge that also serves casual fare and coffee; and a self-service laundry room. While this may not sound like much, it’s a lot more than most river ships can claim, especially in this part of the world.
