Review of RV Tonle Pandaw
RV Tonle Pandaw ship was initially modelled on RV Pandaw 2 (launched in 2002) and originally named "Pandaw III". The riverboat was built in Yangon (Rangoon) and launched in 2002. It had a year’s service in Burma (2002-2003) before being relocated to Mekong River under tug-tow. Ever since, the ship has done continuous service operating on cruises between Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City) and Kampong Cham. In 2013, the ship was fully refitted and its cabins number was reduced to just 24 in order to create onboard gym, spa and library.
The 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, Tonle 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.
