Pandaw II

Country Region

Ship Overview

Built in 2001, the RV Pandaw II is the oldest self-built ship in Pandaw’s fleet of excellent river cruise vessels. Featuring just twenty four staterooms, this beautiful boutique ship is small enough to travel to remote regions and showcase a different side of Myanmar – one that is timeless and lost to larger cruise vessels. With colonial style interiors, the ship provides a relaxed and casual atmosphere but also offers a host of modern amenities. Based on the original Pandaw design, the ship has, in most aspects, been left untouched except for the creation of two marvellous suites out of the four old staterooms on the Upper Deck
