Cruise food: APT’s mid-stream Mekong ice cream station. On the Mekong Delta in Vietnam! Passengers on APT’s eight-day Mekong River cruises between Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) and Siem Reap will find Australian Bulla’s Neapolitan ice cream sitting alongside Vietnam’s Vinamilk chocolate, coconut, vanilla, green bean, taro and durian varieties at a sundeck ice cream tasting on board the luxury La Marguerite, the most stylish cruise ship on the Mekong.
Condiments like shredded ginger, dried plum, local cherry, cashew nut, peanut with milk and rich sauces of orange, blackberry and chocolate can be added to cocktail-glass serves of the Neapolitan and the local ice creams. OH BOY.
This makes for an all-round Aussie-Viet taste sensation on the Mekong Delta!
APT has just started its July-April season in Vietnam and Cambodia.
The 12-day Ho Chi Minh, Mekong and Angkor package for example is priced from $4195 per person, twin share which includes the ice cream tasting of course.
I am off on this cruise very soon and LOVE ice cream, so cant wait. Will write lots more about it on my return.
