Pandaw to Deploy New Ship to Borneo

Pandaw has announced the acquisition of a new ship to be deployed to West Kalimantan, Borneo

The 12-cabin river cruise ship, originally called L’Amant, was built in Saigon in 2006 and has since sailed the Mekong Delta. It will be renamed the Kapuas Pandaw, refitted in the Pandaw style, and delivered to Borneo later this month in time for its inaugural sailing on the Kapuas starting in February 2017. 

Pandaw said that it had planned to send the larger Tonle Pandaw, but that concerns over the vessel’s air draft under two key bridges prompted a change of plan. 

Nearly all 2017 Borneo cruises are fully booked, the line said.
