Very friendly staff. I unfortunatelly forget the name of one of the guys there, but he told us a little bit about the cambodian history and was absolutly friendly and very soliticious. Drinks are a little bit expensive but it was okay because it is always more expensive on boats. Good relaxing khmer music

Only goes for 2 hours and as everything is in US dollars we have found the Australian Dollar does not buy much in CAMBODIA as it does in other Asian destinations. If you live and work wth American Dollars then I imagine you would find it very cheap and worthwhile here. But good service. The Cambodian people are lovely. The food was fine, but get in early as it runs out. Having said that they do try to make more for you. Cocktails were amazing and the one thing that is cheap in Cambodia is spirits so cocktails everywhere are excellent.

We had a good time cruising in Phnom penh as it is the meeting point of Mekong and Tonle sap rivers. Though, we missed the chance of witnessing a beautiful sunset during the cruise due to the cloudy weather. We had an awesome session with the cruise members. They are very informative, attentive and friendly too. The dinner was plenty in amount and tasty too. Hence, it's definitely a value for money! We loved it.
