This is the first luxury four-star cruise ship to connect the two cities. The four-deck cruise ship is 76.8m in length, 13.2m in width, and has 35 cabins to accommodate around 70 passengers.

It has a restaurant with a 360-degree view on the upper deck as well as stores, spas, libraries, and cinemas.

During the tour, passengers will enjoy circus performances, lion dances, traditional Khmer dances, and performances of folk music from the Mekong Delta region.

Tourists are also able to visit a number of interesting destinations in Vietnam and Cambodia throughout the route.

The operation of the ship is expected to help Can Tho become a hub for waterway tourism as well as connect Vietnam’s Mekong River Delta and Cambodia via tourism.
