Katha Pan­daw de­layed

Cruise Weekly - - News -

PAN­DAW River Ex­pe­di­tions has post­poned the launch of its Katha Pan­daw ( pic­tured) ves­sel in In­dia this month due to is­sues with ex­port­ing the ves­sel from Myan­mar.

The cruise line said the is­sues are “now fully re­solved”, and Katha is set to sail to In­dia from Myan­mar’s Yan­gon next week.

Pas­sen­gers booked on Katha for In­dia river cruises in Jan and Feb have been of­fered full re­funds or re­book­ings.

“Most chose al­ter­na­tive Pan­daw river ex­pe­di­tions in other des­ti­na­tions or on land tours ar­ranged for them within In­dia,” the cruise line stated.

The sched­uled Mar and Apr de­par­tures will still go ahead.

Pan­daw has also con­firmed that plans for the launch of Ori­ent Pan­daw for Sep re­main un­changed.

Ad­di­tion­ally, the com­pany launched its third ves­sel in Laos, Sabaidee Pan­daw, in Oct 2018 which sails to China.

With “near full oc­cu­pancy” of its Mekong ships, the com­pany plans to launch a fourth ves­sel in Viet­nam and Cam­bo­dia for the 2019/20 sea­son.
