River Cruise Lines

Operating in the remote rivers of Asia for 20 years, Pandaw continues to open up new cruising regions and develop cultural excursions with a lovely nod to history. The beautifully crafted, Colonial-style, brass and teak vessels have spacious decks with quiet nooks, open-air dining, comfortable cabins and a tranquil onboard ambiance. No single supplements are charged on many sailings in India, Myanmar and the Mekong.
