The cruise had two nights in Pnom Pehn but on the second night we were anchored in the middle of the river so could not go ashore. Considering that was the biggest city on the cruise, that was disappointing.

The Pandaw Cruise was good. The cleanliness and upkeep of the cabins was fantastic. The housekeeping staff impeccable with their duties.

We were a little surprised to find out 4 days into the trip that we weren't going into the lake as we thought. We were on the 8 day cruise.

Everything was excellent.We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday

they were good as you got up close and personal to the locals. Maybe movies could be re run the next day in the afternoon because at 8pm people were very tired after the excursions and dinner.

As we have not travelled on other cruises on the Mekong, we can only comment on our Pandaw cruise. We saw other cruise ships on the river and we feel that our Pandaw Cruise, on the 'RV Bassac Pandaw', was the best designed boat on the Mekong. We were very lucky as there were only 24 people on the cruise.… More
