Review of RV Orient Pandaw

RV Orient Pandaw is a 4-deck riverboat, luxurious yet not ostentatious replica of a dating from 1865 colonial-era ship. This is the first Pandaw ship built in Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City) Vietnam and was launched in 2008. The ship has been operated in 5 countries – Vietnam, Cambodia, Burma/Myanmar and Malaysian Borneo. In each of these countries, Orient Pandaw was re-commissioned according to the local religious rites. The boat's design is based on RV Tonle Pandaw (launched 2002), copied by the Vietnamese in every detail. This design has been repeated 3 times on Pandaw's larger vessels.

The ship has 30 identical cabins (sized 16 m2 / 170 ft2). All staterooms feature twin beds (converting to double), shared (common) balconies and air-conditioning. They also provide generous storage space, safes, desks, as well as hairdryers, slippers and bathrobes in the en-suite bathrooms. An onboard 24-hour laundry service is available, too.

Like on similar Pandaw river cruise ships, Orient 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.
