Built in Rangoon in 2002, the Cruise was sailed round to Saigon under her own power and many a drama described in Paul Strachan’s Pandaw Story. This ship was designed specially for the Mekong and unlike other P class ships does not have a flying bridge. The reason was so she could get under a road bridge. She did actually scrape under on her maiden but it was so scary that Paul Strachan, then standing on the bridge, never dared attempt it again. As a result, we ended up with this incredible 750 square meter teak deck that even has a full size billiard table.
In 2012 she was refitted and lower deck cabins removed in favor of a professional spa, gym, library lounge and office. She is quite justifiably the most splendid ship on the Mekong and the envy of anything that floats by.
The ship has quality mountain bikes for your independent exploration.
Passengers embark the ship in the afternoon. Passengers spend the afternoon at leisure and dinner is served on board.
Explorations up Tonle River to a silver making village, Kampong Tralach, and Chong Koh either by ship or by coach depending on water levels.
This river is very pretty and there is a vibrant local life to be viewed along the river banks and in lesser craft.
Morning walk at Angkor Ban and after an all day sail through delightful Cambodian countryside we reach charming French colonial town of Kratie in the evening.
No other river ships get this high but thanks to the Mekong Pandaw’s shallow draft we can attempt it.
From Kratie we go further upstream using a local bus to view the dolphin grounds in a national park protected area. In the afternoon on our return downstream we stop at a curious shrine known as the Monkey Temple on the way to moor overnight near Kampong Cham.
Early morning transfer to Siem Reap. Refreshments will be provided and we will stop at Kampong Thom along the way. Arrive at Siem Reap mid-afternoon.
