Calling all cruisers: the all-suite Aqua Mekong, the third vessel from luxury operator Aqua Expeditions, is taking its inaugural sail down the Mekong River this October. But don’t expect your average cruise with chaotic kids and buffets galore. This classy ship was designed by Saigon architectural firm Noor Design and is all about sophistication and five-star amenities—expect spacious suites, floor-to-ceiling windows, a pool, spa, gym and even a library. Making its way from Cambodia to Vietnam, the boat will make stops in Phnom Penh, Siem Reap, Chau Doc and Saigon—with plenty of sights and sanctuaries en route.
Seven-day cruise from US$7,000 per person; www.aquaexpeditions.com.
