Southeast Asia 2017: The Riches of the Mekong via AmaWaterways

This was my first cruise, ever.  Honestly, it might have ruined me by setting the bar very high.  I’ve never been in a rush to cruise.  My impressions were that they are miniature floating, crowded, cramped party cities.  Excessive food and drinks, unruly kids, lushes, and tiny rooms is what came to mind.  When I asked why people go every year, I’d get something along the lines of for the fun, buffets, casinos, and other things that I’m not super into. I’d rather wander around an actual foreign city and taste what the locals eat, see what the locals see, and learn about that specific culture from people who live it daily.  Well, thank you AmaWaterways for amending my perception of cruising.  This trip was nothing I would have imagined, and everything I didn’t know that I wanted.

If you know me personally, then you know that bathrooms are a huge deal to me.  So, I have to give kudos where kudos are due.  I was so pleasantly surprised & loved these bathrooms!  The bathrooms were much larger than I expected.  The water was perfect, pressure and temperature on-point.  All the toiletries one would expect from a luxury hotel restroom were available on this ship as well.  And, for the first time in a long time, the lotion and soap felt and smelled so amazing that I took note of the company that produced them.

Anyway, a picture is worth a thousand words, so I’ll let them do most of the talking.  But first, disclaimers:

  • My iPhone camera was (and still is) shaky.
  • I love taking pictures of people taking pictures.  Kinda like Lilo and her ice-cream eaters. 🤷🏾‍♀️ I don’t know why, I just do.
  • I’m at least partially in a lot of the pictures so I remember that I was there.  I have tens of thousands of pictures… I need to be able to look through & know if it was my experience or someone else’s.
  • I take the most awkward selfies. *lol* 🤷🏾‍♀️
