APT says the 62-suite ship will offer the largest suites on the river, twin balconies for more than 90 per cent of suites, two lounges, a library, sun deck with pool and bar, beauty salon, spa, fitness centre and restaurant. With this ship and the ms Marguerite, APT’s fully-inclusive packaging, first class hotels, small group shore excursions in some of the Mekong’s most remote villages – inaccessible to most and the Victoria Express train in North Vietnam, APT is now able to take its hallmark high standard Europe cruise-tour travel to Indochina, according to APT General Manager Marketing, Debra Fox. Ms Fox said the Amalotus’s “exquisitely decorated” staterooms will offer sophisticated amenities and a stylish décor, fusing accents ofcolonial design with regional Khmer artefacts. All suites and staterooms are located on the outside of the vessel.
