Pandaw Cruise Photos

I did the Pandaw Cruises trip from Saigon to Siem Reap in March 2011, and it was outstanding. I cannot recommend it highly enough. The food was great, the cabins spotless and spacious, the crew and guides most attentive, and the on-shore excursions were fabulous. I travelled solo, and didn’t feel left out or out of place. The passengers were about 1/3 American. 1/3 Brits, and 1/3 others (Europeans and Australians). They were a great bunch of people apart from four Mormon couples who kept pretty much to themselves. The passengers numbered 57. I’m now looking forward to doing one of their Irriwaddy cruises.
