A buffet breakfast and sit-down lunch and dinner, all included, are served daily. Meals often feature exotic, organic produce prepared by chefs knowledgable in local cuisine.
Pandaw offers a mostly inclusive experience -- all bottled water, soft drinks, juices, tea, coffee and locally produced beer and spirits are included. Imported spirits are available at an additional cost. Daily shore excursions and all meals are included in the cruise fares.
Each cabin is air-conditioned and is equipped with a safe, luggage storage, wardrobe, writing desk, hair dryer, kimono, minibar, phone and slippers. Thann bath amenities, including shampoo, conditioner, soap and lotion, are included. Passengers can borrow iPads. Wifi is available in public areas throughout the ship. Because of the exotic itineraries the boats sail, satellite signals are spotty, so cabins don't have TVs.
Vessels feature lecture rooms, libraries, spa facilities, shops, live entertainment, movie showings, gyms and traditional saloon. They also have hospitality desks, open 24 hours daily.
