Avalon Waterways has officially launched the newest addition to its fleet on the Mekong river, Avalon Saigon.

The 36-guest ship is fitted with 18 suites featuring floor-to-ceiling, wall-to-wall panoramic windows measuring 14-feet-wide.

“Featuring Avalon Waterways’ signature spacious Panorama Suites, one-of-a-kind open-air balconies and beds that face the views for which river cruising is famous, the Avalon Saigon takes travellers beyond expectation,” said Pam Hoffee, managing director of Avalon Waterways.

“With a maximum capacity of just 36 guests, this Mekong ship – like its sister ship, the Avalon Siem Reap – invites travellers to see the world differently.”

In addition, Avalon Saigon has retractable screen systems and doors that slide open, as well as private sitting areas.
