LA MARGUERITE Ship Review | Travel Research Online



Built in 2009, La Marguerite is 235 feet long and carries just 92 passengers along Southeast Asia’s beautiful Mekong River. Designed to honour the region in which she sails, her passenger accommodation and public areas are decorated with local artifacts and regional Mekong elements. Because of this, she boasts a style all her own; one that boasts the charm of the old world with all the modern amenities today’s river cruisers have come to expect of AmaWaterways.

All staterooms aboard La Marguerite are outside and ninety percent of these feature private balconies. All staterooms have a sitting area, writing desk, shower with bathrobe and slippers, a hairdryer, mini-bar, and an in-stateroom television.

There are five stateroom categories aboard La Marguerite:

  • Category C staterooms are located on Mekong Deck and measure 226 square feet. They feature a porthole window and include all the amenities listed above.
  • Category A & B staterooms are located on Saigon and Tonle decks. Like Category C staterooms, they are also 226 square feet but feature a balcony and large fixed window – perfect for viewing the magnificent Mekong. They include all of the amenities listed above.
  • Located on Sadec Deck are the six Junior Suites. At 290 square feet, these rooms have a balcony and large fixed window in addition to a king-sized bed and a bathroom featuring a separate tub and shower.
  • Two Suites located all the way forward on Sadec Deck provide 452 square feet of living space that features a king-sized bed, a bathroom complete with whirlpool tub and separate shower, and a private balcony with two lounge chairs and a table.

As with many ships, these suites can sell out quickly, so it can pay to book well in advance.

To ensure your cruise along the Mekong is as relaxing as it is enjoyable, La Marguerite features a host of public rooms in which to pass the time. A full fitness centre compliments the sun deck and swimming pool high atop Sadec Deck, and a comfortable lounge and bar area are located just one deck below. A forward facing lounge and library can also be found on this deck.

Finally, a reception area and gift shop give way to the beautifully decorated Mekong Restaurant.
