On Scenic Spirit, river and shore excursions are just as important as onboard comforts. The 34-suite ship—one of the most luxurious to ply the Mekong Delta—offers eight-day itineraries through Vietnam and Cambodia that include such immersive experiences as meetings with monks at remote temples. But back on the ship, there’s plenty to look forward to, from swimming pool and sauna to an open-air cinema.
Don’t miss: Visit the ancient Cambodian capital of Oudong to receive a blessing from a monk and a private lesson on praying in Buddhist pagodas. (senicuhysa.com)
