One of the most popular river cruisers on the Mekong and operated by a French-Vietnamese joint venture, the RV Mekong Prestige II was launched in 2013 and features 32 spacious staterooms. The décor is a fusion of contemporary Asian design with lots of polished teak, coupled with the intimate ambience and service of a boutique hotel. Just imagine yourself relaxing in the large plunge pool as the busy life of the river slips by or sipping a sundowner on the Sun Deck, leaning over the rail and being part of the ever-changing and fascinating life of the Mekong all around you. Each stateroom features full-length panoramic sliding glass doors leading to your own private balcony. There is a luxury en-suite bathroom with shower, hairdryer and bathrobes, plus a writing desk, two armchairs with coffee table, personal safe and individually controlled air-conditioning. All staterooms are very spacious at 20 square metres (215 square feet) including the French balcony, and feature twin beds which may be pushed together to create a double bed. You have a choice of Upper Deck staterooms and Main Deck staterooms, as well as a small selection of suites as described below.
