“….The RV Pandaw Cruise was so amazing. We cannot say enough good things about our family’s experience on Mekong Delta. Great crew and staff, wonderful fellow travelers, sights sounds cuisines that cannot be experienced any other way except on a River boat. The food at all servings is excellent with a selection of local and European dishes always available. We were fortunate to travel with Viet Prestige travel, which help us make our vacation perfectly. The RV Pandaw Cruise is so worldly as you can enjoy the best on this planet….”

 

Overview

Pandaw Cruise is the largest luxury river cruise company in Asia with six luxury ships exploring five countries. All Pandaw Cruises were newly built, designed and finished as replicas of colonial river steamers, constructed by traditional craftsmen are in themselves objects of great beauty.

 Have the highest space to passenger ratio of any ships afloat

 Our much loved staterooms are 170 square feet

 18 upper deck, 6 main deck staterooms

 Finished in teak and brass.

A Pandaw river expedition is not like an ocean going cruise.

 There is no dressing up for dinner and no ‘captain’s table’.

 Pandaws provide a friendly & informal atmosphere like at home

 There is an incredibly high level of personal service and care aboard

 We offer a great choice of local cuisine and exotic foods

 Travelers are cushioned with incredible comfort, fine dining, great cocktails and choice variety of wines

 Excursions ashore a key part of any Pandaw river expedition.

There can be no tapestry of river life as fascinating and varied as the River Mekong. Indeed there can be no more striking a cultural contrast as that between the bustling Vietnam delta and the tranquility of Cambodia. We pass from the vibrant French colonial port of Saigon, through the vast delta so rich in human life, to travel along the main channel into the rich countryside of Cambodia
