Review of RV Champa Pandaw

RV Champa Pandaw ship was built in Thailand and launched in 2016. This is currently the second Pandaw riverboat (following the sister vessels RV Laos Pandaw, launched in 2015, and RV Yunnan Pandaw - 2016) operating on Upper Mekong River cruises. These itineraries visit all 3 countries of the Golden Triangle (Thailand, Burma/Myanmar, Laos) and also China.

The ship has 14 identical cabins (sized 17 m2 / 180 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, Champa 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.
