Harking back to its historic roots with its authentic river steamer design and decor, the RV Mekong allows you to travel along the picturesque Mekong River in style, with character features combining with modern comforts throughout.

Cabins offer a comfortable retreat and wonderful views of the passing landscape, while the vessel also claims to have the most generous public space for the number of passengers on board of any cruise ship in the world. This includes the delightful, partly shaded sun deck, which makes the perfect place from which to enjoy the sights and sounds of the river.

Pandaw also supports some local charity projects, so by traveling on board you will be helping the communities that line your route and may even visit some of the projects en route.


The 24 teak-lined twin cabins are spread across two decks, each equipped with air conditioning, an en suite shower room and panoramic French windows leading on to private deck space. The cabins offer around 16 square meters of living space along with generous closet and under-bed storage.
