Pandaw Myanmar

Cruise company: Irrawaddy Flotilla Company Ltd

Cruise type: Luxury, Sharing, 24 cabins

Destinations: Myanmar - Myanmar

Pandaw has 12 beautifully crafted Pandaw ships in operation that they built ourselves in Myanmar. 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, which would be unreachable by other vessels, let alone overland.

Sailing on a Pandaw is essentially an outdoor experience. Whilst the staterooms are very comfortable and roomy, passengers prefer to spend their time sitting outside, on the promenade decks or on the vast observation deck above. Unlike other cruise ships, every window (except port holes on the lower deck) can open. When sailing our passengers sit on deck and become absorbed by great panoramas as they unfold around them. Spellbound, one cannot help but to meditate upon the unceasing human and wildlife activity of these teaming water worlds.

 

Accommodation

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. 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.

Dining Room & Bar

The Pandaw dining rooms are designed to open up along the sides and only at night do we close them up and use air conditioning. We know our passengers want fresh air not chilled air. The new Katha Pandaw, designed according to feedback from our passengers, has no formal dining room but rather open air dining on deck. We offer a great choice of local cuisine and exotic foods. We source supplies as locally as possible, given environmental health regulations. Breakfast is a buffet whilst lunch has a buffet soup, salad and dessert table with the main course served at the table and dinner is served at the tables. Passengers who do not like hot or spicy foods are offered European alternatives and vegetarians are well catered for. Special diets may be catered for by prior agreement. Our chefs know that the majority of passengers want to eat the best of each country they pass through.
