Life Aboard

Amenities, great food, camaraderie, & comfort

Traveling through Vietnam and Cambodia along the Mekong River with its beautiful sites and deep cultural experiences will give you a spiritual lift. To compound this healthful effect, we add the luxury of comfort to the privilege of being here—with a quality of shipboard life and a philosophy of wellness designed to relax and rejuvenate body, mind, and spirit.

Informal ambience, relaxed attitude
Our chefs use fresh, local ingredients acquired along our route. An array of fresh fruits and delicious, fresh juices are key components of the breakfast buffet. Cuisine of the countries we explore is available each day, and you’ll even have a chance to learn traditional cooking methods if you choose. There are fish or meat choices at every meal, and our chef will happily accommodate vegan or other special diet requests. And predinner hors d’oeuvres are served in the lounge at daily Recap. 

The personal ahhhhh factor
You’ll find much more information in Our Fleet section, but suffice it to say that your spacious cabin will be an inviting place to end your active day with comfortable furnishings and your own private balcony. 

Sociable spaces, quiet corners 
The top of the ship features a restaurant and bar and a small pool. The lounge is the center of the expedition community, where we gather for talks and daily Recap. The observatory is another gathering place, where guests mingle with staff to watch the beautiful countryside glide past. And the ship offers any number of places to pass time enjoyably alone, or with a small group. 

Recharge with a spa treatment
Massage therapy and body treatments, plus face, hand, and foot treatments are available by appointment in the spa. Choose to have a treatment instead of an activity, or to end an active day of exploring. Or, drop in anytime to use the exercise equipment or steam bath.

Guest comments

"The ship staff was always very attentive and greeted you by name. Ship staff was always polite and helpful. The Jahan is a beautiful ship. The variety of modes of travel and the variety of excursions were obviously well planned out. I came away from the trip with a greater understanding of Cambodia and Vietnam."
