“Featuring Avalon Waterways’ signature spacious Panorama Suites, one-of-a-kind Open-Air Balconies and beds that face the views for which river cruising is famous, the Avalon Saigon takes travelers beyond expectation,” said Pam Hoffee, managing director of Avalon Waterways. “With a maximum capacity of just 36 guests, this Mekong ship – like its sister ship, the Avalon Siem Reap – invites travelers to see the world differently.”

On the Avalon Saigon, travelers are welcomed by 18 well-appointed Suites with 245-square-feet of living space. And, while other ships may offer guests tiny balconies, this Suite Ship introduces travelers in Asia to Avalon’s innovative Open-Air Balconies featuring floor-to-ceiling, wall-to-wall panoramic windows measuring 14-feet-wide with retractable screen systems and doors that slide open a full 9-feet, creating the feeling of sitting outside.

In front of each Open-Air Balcony is a private sitting area, complete with love seat, chair and table. And facing the passing views in Avalon’s Comfort Collection Beds, invites travelers to relax and enjoy every moment of cruising past the daily scenes of life on the Mekong River.

Beginning immediately, the Avalon Saigon will sail the Heart of Cambodia & Vietnam – a new 18-day journey – as well as 13-day Fascinating Vietnam, Cambodia & the Mekong River.
