Cruise Lines - Pandaw River Cruises and the Irrawaddy Flotilla Company

Pandaw River Cruises and the Irrawaddy Flotilla Company

Whilst we offer a real adventure experience, travellers are cushioned with incredible comfort, fine dining, great cocktails and choice wines, not to mention extraordinary levels of service.

A feature of all river cruises is the once or twice daily shore excursions led by expert local guides to explore Buddhist temples, historical sites, markets and handicraft workshops.

The Pandaw River Cruises cruise ships have an ultra shallow draft enabling them to moor where other larger ships could not stop. Inland water navigation in these regions is challenging, and the Pandaws have been specially designed to cope with constantly changing river conditions.

 Pandaw River Cruises Cruise Areas

In 1995 Pandaw River Cruises were the first since the war to pioneer the great Irrawaddy and Chindwin rivers in Burma.

In 2003 Pandaw River Cruises were the first on the Mekong River in Cambodia and the backwaters of the Mekong Delta in Vietnam.

These small ships can penetrate remote and otherwise inaccessible areas. In 2009 Pandaw River Cruises opened new routes on the Ganges in India and the Rajang in Borneo.

 Pandaw River Cruises Ships

The six ships were built new and designed and finished as replicas of colonial river steamers. These small ships have the highest cruise passenger to space ratio of any ships afloat.

Staterooms are 170 square feet and finished in teak and brass.
