Inspired by the Mekong’s ancient tradition of riverboat building, the Lan Diep is a 22-cabin, 44-guest ship which was built in 2007. The ship is 38 meters long and seven meters wide, and is built in a traditional colonial-style with wood finishing and a metal hull.
The cabins are spacious and feature central air-conditioning, shower rooms and generous amounts of wardrobe space.
Public areas include a restaurant that combines authentic Eastern and Western recipes with a semi-buffet breakfast and lunch and seated dinners. Passengers can also choose a specially-tailored light menu which is available upon request. The ship also has a sun deck and shop. Social activities onboard include cultural performances from local performers, educational talks, cooking classes and nightly entertainment in the saloon bar.
