Activities & Entertainment

Life on board your Pandaw ship will be what you make it. Shining a spotlight on local cultures and history, the crew host daily briefings set to inform and fascinate, while cultural performances include everything from a marionette theatre to a ballet. Guests can also learn some new skills, with cooking demonstrations, fruit carving and napkin tying sessions. If you’re keen to unwind after a day of exploring, you can simply read a book on deck, take some snaps of the exotic scenery around you, or, if you’re travelling on the Mekong Pandaw ship, you can head to the Pandaw Spa for an invigorating massage. Themed movie nights are popular with guests. Social activities are also provided on your Pandaw cruise, with cocktail parties, a welcome dinner, a farewell dinner and themed costume events.
