Review of RV Kindat Pandaw

RV Kindat Pandaw ship was built in Yangon (Rangoon) and launched in 2014. The original Kindat was constructed in 1886 by Yarrows (London) and sank in 1920. The boat was named after Kindat - town located on Upper Chindwin River in Burma.

This is a shallow-draft design riverboat able to access from Mandalay to the most northern navigable point of Irrawaddy, Bhamo, near the China border. The itinerary includes Katha, where George Orwell wrote Burmese Days. The vessel has 18 identical cabins of 16 m2 (170 ft2). All accommodations feature twin beds (some converting), French windows and air-conditioning. The staterooms also provide safes and desks, as well as hair dryers, slippers and bathrobes in the bathrooms. An onboard laundry is available, too.

Like on similar Pandaw river cruise ships, Kindat Pandaw passengers are able to spend leisure time on the aft part of the covered upper deck. Meals are served bistro-style indoor and outdoor on the upper deck. Breakfast is buffet style, but preceded by light bites, tea and coffee for early risers. Lunch is served either buffet style or sit-down, while dinners are 4-course affairs. Pandaw's food ingredients are locally sourced and always fresh.

Domestic beers, spirits, soft drinks, coffee and tea are complimentary and served on the upper deck at the bar/library lounge. An open-bridge policy is in place. Wi-Fi is slow because of the remote regions traveled. However, some riverside ports along the cruise itinerary feature Internet shops. The ship provides quality mountain bikes available complimentary for passenger use on independent shore trips.
