On Saturday, we finished the Mekong Pandaw River Cruise. The experience was exceptional and exceeded expectations. (I don’t like cruises!).
The cabins were compact, but complete. Hot water for showering was readily available. The shower area was great, I am six foot four so I need space.
Food and Beverage – fresh fruit, local and western dishes as well as special requests to satisfy allergies or religious needs were catered for. All food was fresh each day. There were no leftovers reserved for the next day.
Only wine and international spirits are at an additional cost but are reasonably priced. However, the local G&T was as good as it gets!
The excursions were well managed and delivered by competent tour guides. Every excursion was engaging, interesting and some were unbelievably rewarding.
The crew and especially the Purser were outstanding. The crew’s attitude and attention to making our time on-board memorable was excellent. They were friendly and engaged well with all passengers.

The trip was fabulous from beginning to end – especially the cruise. They did everything well – enthusiastic guides with lots of local knowledge, who took us to places we would not otherwise have seen and gave us genuine insight into the lives of the people we met in the various villages; performances of local dancers and musicians, delicious meals (expanding waistlines!), the bliss of cocktail hour on the sundeck with the river gliding by. We felt really well cared for the whole way. Weather was ok – very hot and humid some days but others pleasantly mild – way better than Melbourne winter any day!!!
Thanks for all your help
We absolutely LOVED the cruise and I have been raving about it to friends – “if you ever want to go to Vietnam and Cambodia, I can’t think of a better way!” The comfort and size of the boat were just right for us, the crew and guides were brilliant, and the variety of food and tours suited us wonderfully well.
We could not possibly have any complaints about the Pandaw Cruise. The staff, the food , the organization, the entertainment, the excursions, the guides and everything else were perfect, as was your organizing of the trip. The hotels in Saigon and Siem Reap were excellent. All in all a first rate trip which we would recommend to anybody.
