A Pandaw adventure is very different from that offered on an ocean cruise. The ships are small in scale, and the atmosphere is informal and very friendly.
You will get the choice to experience local delicacies at mealtimes on board along with western options too. The master chef heads an experienced culinary team who can cater for most dietary requirements. Complimentary local mineral water, jugged coffee, teas, and tisanes are available during your stay on the ship.
Evening entertainment on board is low-key and very in keeping with the ports of call you visit along your chosen cruise itinerary. Cultural performances, educational talks and onboard cooking classes can be experienced at your leisure.
Pandaw ships offer a high passenger-to-deck-space ratio. You will find plenty of quiet areas onboard where you will be able to unwind on deck as well as in the library. Public spaces include the spacious open-air lounge, the dining room, the observation decks, and the lounge bar. The decks are designed to offer a 360-degree promenade offering spectacular views of the passing scenery.
Passengers are free to do their own thing onshore or take advantage of the shore excursions included in the cruise fare. Various forms of transport will take you to explore the port of call, from walking, to cyclo, sampan or coach with the excursions led by expert local guides, allowing you to experience the heart of the culture.
You will be able to discover for yourselves as to the reasons why Pandaw has a high repeat passenger rate, with many returning time and time again.
