Restaurant & meals

A great choice of local cuisine and exotic foods are on offer to our guests during onboard. We select supplies as locally as possible and control strictly the environmental health regulations. Breakfast and lunch are buffets and dinner is served at the tables as set menu.
 
In case you do not like hot or spicy foods, European alternatives and vegetarians are well catered for. Our chefs know that the majority of passengers want to eat the best of each country they pass through.

Services & Entertainment

RV Pandaw River Cruise Spa:
Currently only available on our Mekong ships, the Pandaw Spa offers head massage, foot massage and body massages in dedicated spa areas on each ship. Due to lack of space we only carry one spa lady on each ship so be sure to book in advance as they can be in good demand
 
RV Pandaw River Cruise Promenade Deck:
Sailing on a Pandaw is essentially an outdoor experience. Whilst the staterooms are very comfortable and roomy, passengers prefer to spend their time sitting outside, on the promenade decks or on the vast observation deck above. Unlike other cruise ships every window (except port holes on lower deck) can open. When sailing our passengers sit on deck and become absorbed by great panoramas as they unfold about them. Spellbound, one cannot help but to meditate upon the unceasing human and wildlife activity of these teaming water worlds.
