Pandaw Mekong

Cruise company: The Irrawaddy Flotilla Company

Cruise type: Luxury, Sharing, 33 cabins

Destinations: Vietnam - Cambodia

Pandaw Cruise teams included luxury ships was launched from 2008 and they offer a real adventure experience to discover the great river of South-East Asia. Each Pandaw Cruise was designed as copies of colonial river boiler and teak by traditional craftsmen are in themselves objects of great beauty. Pandaws provide a friendly & informal atmosphere like at home.

We have five luxury river cruise ships in operation that we built ourselves. Each ship, hand finished in brass and teak by traditional craftsmen are in themselves objects of great beauty. The secret of our success is that on our ships, whilst luxury and comfort are discreetly present, it is the colonial character and friendly atmosphere that predominate. All our Pandaws have ultra-shallow drafts and can travel to remote areas unreachable by other vessels, let alone overland.

Accommodation

The Pandaw Cruise stateroom is the most celebrated feature of our ships. Finished in brass and teak, the main and upper deck rooms are very spacious at 168 square feet (15.6 sqm). Much loved by all our passengers we have ensured that with each ship we build the stateroom remains the same. Our cabins do not have mini-bars; satellite TV's, internet or phones. There is a 24 honesty bar on the sundeck. Pandaw passengers usually want to escape from the tiresome features found in international business hotels.Many passengers describe life on board a Pandaw more like being a guest on a private motor yacht than a cruise ship. Where we go and what we see is intrepid in extreme. What you come back to is a floating base of discreet comfort, caring service and all the good things one looks for in life.
