An incredible journey. The entire crew is fantastic. The service on board is incredible. The cabin is great. The welcome was super warm. All wishes were fulfilled. The food is exceptional. You could get a good impression of the way of life of the locals. The captain found routes in Halong Bay that were not so crowded. You could enjoy an uninterrupted view of this incredible nature.It was a nice ...

Pandaw is cruising for people who enjoy visiting unique locations and sharing comradery with likeminded travelers. Simple but extremely comfortable accommodations matched with friendly, impeccable service from every member of the crew. Our purser, Lakpa could not do enough to make this cruise the best ever along with Chef Kunal and Cruise Manager Win who worked tirelessly to address every need or ...

This 12 night and 13 day cruise on the Ganges River in India was the trip of a lifetime. Actually this was our fourth cruise with Pandaw and we had the same conclusion from each previous cruise. This cruise began in Kolkata and concluded in Patna. We also went on the pre and post cruise tours. We have traveled extensively in southeast Asia but had not traveled in India so decided to go with ...

I dont`t do this often, but I did today! I would like to personally thank you, the entire crew of the Sabaidee Pandaw and everyone else involved for a wonderful and harmonious Christmas holiday. A great and very relaxing trip for me on the Mekong in Laos and Thailand came to end last week. Everything was perfect! The overall structure of the trip including the pre- and post-program in ...

Mekong Laos

I chose Laos as I like to travel off the beaten track and Laos, contrary to Thailand, is still relatively unspoilt. The cruise provided not only daily visits to far-away villages, elephant and bear sanctuaries and breathtaking waterfalls that allowed me to understand the country, but also very comfortable surroundings while cruising along this mythical river. The ship was very beautiful with ...

Upper Mekong from Vientiane Laos to Chiang Khong Thailand

The Sabaidee anchors just upstream from Vientiane due to river conditions and you’re shuttled to the ship via a long boat. The long boat ride feels like an episode of Survivor where you are trying to size up your fellow travellers that you will spend the next 10 days with. Our upstream sailing had 18 passengers and 18 crew. I would estimate the average age to mid seventies with a split of 2/3 ...

Appalling Pandaw Experience

A 14-day river cruise on the Ganges from Varanasi to Kolkata aboard a luxury shallow-bottomed river boat with fascinating daily excursions - if only! We had signed up for an "adventurous expedition" and were to be prepared for the unexpected. So I guess we should not have been shocked when we arrived at the hotel in Varanasi with bags packed ready to go on board to be told there's been a ...

Fascinating, if at times fraught, cruise through over 2000 years of history.

Pandaw is an excellent company and the Ganges has more to offer in the way of palaces, temples and ancient ruins than any other river in Asia. We knew that the ship would actually be run by an Indian management company but the standards were as good as other Pandaw cruises: a lovely boat, replica of the 19th century river boats of Asia, excellent Indian food, friendly and highly competent staff. ...

PANDAW Kolkata to Varanasi

Third Pandaw cruise after Irrawaddy & Mekong & very disappointing but we were forewarned after many bad reviews. All 19 pax were return custom & we departed in KATHA PANDAW on one engine which precluded us transitting the Farraka lock 11 Dec so we transferred to the KALAW PANDAW 10 Dec to continue. The ship went aground on the afternoon of 14 Dec & remained stranded for 42 1/4 hrs until freed by a ...

As previous very happy Pandaw clients, when the opportunity arose to cruise the Ganges we jumped at it. Did not comparison shop or explore other options such was our faith in Pandaw. First mistake on our part. After paying the balance of our not insignificant account, alarm bells started ringing when on 28/10 a message appeared advising that due to problems they were experiencing they would ...
