Review of RV Pandaw II
RV Pandaw II ship is the first ever newbuild Pandaw riverboat. The ship was built in Yangon / Rangoon (at Dawbone dockyard) and launched in 2002. The prototype was the old Pandaw I - now over 60 years old. The Rangoon's Dawbone shipyard was then owned by the Marine Department.
This Irrawaddy River cruise ship has 24 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, Pandaw II 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.
