Mekong Melody (2 cabins only) provide private luxury boat charters to the beautiful Mekong in Vietnam or anywhere in the Delta. We work with you to create a private charter that is tailored to your exact requirements.
There are many milestone events that bring treasured friends and family together. These events create some of our most lasting memories. With so many reasons to come together - reunions, weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, or retirement - we believe there may be no better way to celebrate than cruising on our small ship.
Our ship is perfect for an experience that ensures privacy and flexibility while providing endless opportunities to simply be together with the people who mean the most to us. If there is a special event happening in your life, we invite you to sail away on a private cruise with us. For families the "Mekong Passage" offers the perfect platform for a private family cruise.
On the Mekong Melody Cruiser's, we offer a mixture of local cuisine with richly flavor and taste and there are always vegetarian dishes offered. Passengers requiring special diets, such as vegetarian, low salt & low cholesterol meals, may make their requests to the chef when onboard. The chef will try to honor all requests. Exotic fruit, fresh organic vegetables, locally caught fish and prawns are the preference of most of our passengers.
