The resplendent RV Orient Pandaw has explored the likes of Vietnam, Cambodia, Malaysia and Burma, and has now also started sailing the spectacular waterways of the Ganges, its design blending perfectly with the exotic destinations to which it sails.
Staterooms are all teak and brass, with panoramic French windows and personal decks – for optimum viewing of rice paddies, ancient villages and stunning temples, alongside ultra-modern bathrooms that boast stone showers, spa-branded amenities and kimonos and slippers for guests to keep after the cruise.
Guests are greeted with a welcome gift and cocktail while, come evening, complimentary canapés are served as a delicious prelude to creations from the local master chef of each country, who lead an experienced international culinary team with themed dinners, offering seafood, Asian and European delights. At the end of each cruise guests are treated to a farewell reception, while the saloon bar plays host to nighty entertainment alongside a 24-hour hospitality bar and even an onboard bakery.
Excursions are led by expert guides before refreshing cold towels and drinks – best enjoyed before a massage from one of the onboard spa therapists, or soaking up some rays on the sundeck in between ports. If that wasn’t enough, you’ll also enjoy cultural performances, cooking classes and educational talks, while the fair trade shop, art gallery displaying works by local artists and an extensive library ensure you're kept entertained throughout.
