Life onboard

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 the lower deck) can open. When sailing our passengers sit on deck and become absorbed by great panoramas as they unfold around them. Spellbound, one cannot help but to meditate upon the unceasing human and wildlife activity of these teaming water worlds.

Pandaw Cruise Ship

The secret of our success is that on our ships, whilst luxury and comfort are discreetly present, it is the colonial character and friendly atmosphere that predominate. All our Pandaws have ultra shallow drafts and can travel to remote areas, which would be unreachable by other vessels, let alone overland.
