The atmosphere on board one of the Pandaw vessels is relaxed and informal.
All cabins are air-conditioned and contain a shower room with hot and cold water and windows that open, whilst beds are traditional teak ships cots. The 24 cabins are very comfortable yet most passengers prefer to spend their time sitting outside on one of the promenade decks relaxing in a rattan chair, or on the observation deck above.
The dining room is conceived as an extension of the open deck space with fold-back doors to allow the breeze to pass through. There is a well stocked bar and menus are varied with an emphasis on using fresh local ingredients including fish, tropical fruits and exotic vegetables. Breakfast and lunch are served as buffets and dinner is served at the tables. Passengers who do not like hot or spicy foods are offered European alternatives and vegetarians are well catered for.
