Le Cochinchine Cruise
Le Cochinchine Cruise Cabin
Each of cabins has its own air-conditioner unit which can be adjusted for your comfort. We recommend you do not over- cool your cabin as the sudden change from the outside temperature to a chilled cabin can bring on colds, respiratory illnesses and even stomach upsets. When you go out, we recommend you turn the setting to 'Lo Cool', set at about 4, and then when you return you can readjust the temperature to your preference without having to wait for cool air. At night you may prefer to use the fan only and you can open windows if you like. Insect netting covers the windows to protect you. Please do not leave your air-conditioner on with the window open - this results in energy loss (the equivalent of switching on the heating and opening the windows in a cold country

Le Cochinchine Cruise bar
The cruise bar is always open; it offers many selections of famous wines such as: French, Australian, Italian wine.
Le Cochinchine Cruise Safes
Barges do not generally have safes on board. Since the dress code is casual it is not necessary to bring along valuable jewelry. In general it is not wise to travel anywhere with your valuables. Exercise caution throughout & be careful when handling or stowing your passport. It is a good idea to travel with a photocopy of your passport. Leave information of your credit cards at home with a trusted friend or relative, as well as make a copy of the stop usage (800#) if lost or stolen you can call from Europe.
