What Our Guests are Saying

Thank you so much for a most wonderful experience this past week on the Aqua Mekong.  I must say that while I had high expectations I never expected it to exceed them so much.  The ship is a beautiful floating resort and an ideal place to explore places few people see, places less touched by modernity and places with beautiful topography, all from the comfort of the luxurious accommodations and living quarters on board. But as nice as the ship is, it is you, the team on board that truly create the experience. The warm smiles, the personalized touch and the simple yet refined dedication to service make the Aqua feel more like a private yacht than an exploration river boat. The intimacy of the hardware is only embellished by the heart and soul infused in your team which I find remarkable to do in such a short time since launch. From the wait staff to the bar tenders, to the amazing tour guides, the house keepers, and the cruise directors, everyone knew us by name after one day, knew our preferences, and always managed to make anything we wanted happen – any time of day. I was quite impressed with the variation of activities you offered, as I was afraid each day would seem redundant. But what most surprised me was how much I just enjoyed watching the world go by on board – and actually feeling amazing staying on board and chilling out rather than rushing to do something every minute. The lectures and selection of movie (sans the tiger one!) really helped bring the destination to life, and I was especially attuned by the philanthropic concepts you introduced on board. You truly have something special and truly opened my eyes to what Aqua is really all about. Thank you so much for your hospitality and for making me feel so special!
