Named after the longest river in the north of Vietnam, up on the Panorama Deck, the ship’s air-conditioned Indoor Song Hong Lounge, where you step back in time to the 1930s, is the perfect place to relax in comfort and to observe life on the riverbank as you cruise by. Sink into a plump couch angled to optimize the engrossing, ever-changing -landscapes through the floor-to-ceiling windows.
Order a fresh tropical fruit cocktail, a local beer or fine European wine from the fully stocked bar or treat yourself to afternoon tea. In the evening talented local artists perform here.
Originating in China, the Red River (Song Hong in Vietnamese) flows through the capital, Hanoi, and several provinces in the north of the country, creating a fertile Red River Delta, before emptying into the Gulf of Tonkin.
