APT, the leaders in luxury travel, have now launched their 2021/22 season for Vietnam and Cambodia, with the exciting news of its brand-new ship, Mekong Serenity, to cruise the Mekong River. Luxuriously spacious, the Mekong Serenity boasts some of the largest entry-level suites among vessels cruising the Mekong River. All suite categories aboard the Mekong Serenity include a private balcony, so guests are free to enjoy the ever-changing scenes in absolute comfort.

Luke Nguyen, acclaimed chef and APT Ambassador for the past 10 years, has been an important contributor to the dining experience on the new ship and in November 2021, Nguyen will also be hosting an APT tour in the region.

Exclusive to APT is the onboard ‘Indochine by Luke Nguyen’ restaurant where guests can delight in the taste of Vietnam with an intimate culinary journey inside a private dining room of 16 people aboard the Mekong Serenity with an exclusive five-course menu designed by renowned chef Luke Nguyen.

Commenting on the restaurant design Nguyen said; “It is exciting to be part of the development of Indochine aboard the beautiful Mekong Serenity. I’m very proud that my authentic yet modern Vietnamese cuisine is so well received by diners and it gives me so much pleasure shaping the menu for this special cruise in my homeland.”

The brand-new sparkling Mekong Serenity features just 44 suites for a maximum of 88 guests, and offers some of the largest entry-level suites on the Mekong at 28 square metres. With one staff member to every two guests on the Mekong Serenity, you will experience an intuitive, friendly and gracious style of service.
