Mr. Barry Janes review

The Lord Byron is – as the name suggests – our British designed suite. This cabin features a light decent mint green ambiance on the walls which are all over covered with British-Colonial paintings - all manually crafted. The furniture comes in a hazelnut brown finishing and the extra large bathroom features an exquisite shower. Lord Byron has one large balcony (11 sqm) including an outdoor Jacuzzi, more details at our official site
The facilities on the ship are excellent and this includes the cabin (Signature suite) that we occupied

The food is good, particularly the breakfast and lunch, but the evening meals should be much better. Some nights they were very average. I am unhappy that complimentary tea and coffee is not available after lunch and the evening meal. This is certainly available on even the most budget ships cruising all parts of the world.

The entertainment is poor and as you are primarily catering for European clients, there is a limit to how much local entertainment they want. Remember the entertainment is for the benefit of the guests and not the crew. I think consideration to be how to manage the final night party. I do not want to dance and party with the staff on the ship. On that subject I do not like staff addressing me by my Christian name. On all other ships I have always been addressed as Sir by all crew members.

I would like to make a comment about the Guides. The Cambodian Guide was excellent in every regard and i can not fault him. The Vietnamese Guide had a very bad style of prefacing

Smaller to mid-sized ships with a traditional Mekong cruise experience. These smaller to mid-sized cruise liners are accessible to more ports of call than larger resort style ships, offering more varied and interesting itineraries. Visit website
